Our family of three (2 adults, one tween), will be traveling through the Yellowstone NP and Tetons NP area for 6 days. We have 4 nights booked in Yellowstone and want to spend 2 nights in the Grand Teton/Jackson National Park area. We want to hike, see wildlife and the usual nature things, but are also open to other types of activities (historical, cultural, etc.)
We are trying to figure out whether we should book a room at in Grand Teton (Jackson Lake Lodge cabin), or whether having a room in Jackson will allow us more flexibilty in choosing activities. Any advice on this? We are active travelers. If we stay in Teton, will be be wanting to travel into Jackson Hole anyway for meals, or any special activities South of the town, etc.? What's the atmosphere like in Jackson Hole? Thanks!
