Equally quaint and as mellow as Driggs, but well worth checking out. 18min away on the way toward east entrance into Wyoming by way of Teton Pass. Look for Music on Main Street in the summertime and awesome live music at The Knotty Pine. The Knotty is tiny and tickets go quick so plan in advance. Victor Emporium serves up it's infamous Huckleberry Shakes - perfect way to end a long hot mountain bike ride.

The WEST Yellowstone National Park Entrance is about 1 hour and 45 minutes north of us. The entrance is through the town of West Yellowstone, Montana. The SOUTH Yellowstone National Park Entrance is about 2 hours and 15 minutes away - accessed by driving over Teton Pass into Wyoming and then heading north into Grand Teton National Park which will take you to the south entrance of Yellowstone National Park. As far as Grand Teton National Park, the entry to this area (on this west side of the Teton Range) can be accessed just 2.2 miles north of our place at Teton Canyon where there is a parking lot with trails and waterfalls just steps away. You can also drive further into the canyon to access more trails that take you into the Teton Range from this west side of the mountain range. I would highly encourage looking at a map to understand that the Teton Range and Grand Teton National Park can truly be accessed from both the west side and the east side. (And similar with Yellowstone being in WY and MT.) The Teton mountain range straddles the states of Idaho and Wyoming as it sits on the state line. Sometimes you will be in Wyoming and from this Idaho side you will often be weaving back and forth sometimes being in Wyoming and sometimes being in Idaho whether driving around from our condo up to Grand Targhee Ski and Summer Resort, or accessing trails and hiking in these areas. Hope this helps :)

The South entrance to Grand Teton National Park is by way of driving East over Teton Pass into Jackson, WY and then heading north directly to the south gates of the park. 1 hour 10 minutes Grand Teton National Park hiking trails can also be accessed by way of Teton Canyon which is 2.2 miles away from our place. This is for the more avid hiker with backcountry knowledge. I would highly encourage looking at a map to understand that the Teton Range and Grand Teton National Park can truly be accessed from both the west side and the east side. The Teton mountain range straddles the states of Idaho and Wyoming as it runs north/south along the state line. From this Idaho side you will often be weaving back and forth sometimes being in Wyoming and sometimes being in Idaho whether driving around from our condo up to Grand Targhee Ski and Summer Resort, or to accessing the trails... as well as hiking/biking/etc in these areas.

2.2 miles north of our places is Teton Canyon. Quick entrance to the parking area where you can access hiking/biking trails and waterfalls just steps away. I would highly encourage looking at a map to understand that the Teton Range and Grand Teton National Park can truly be accessed from Teton Canyon. From this parking area, you can also drive much further into the canyon to access the trails into Grand Teton National Park shown in these photos

Food Scene
From cheap eats to a couple few spots for foodies and coffee lovers. If you're a hardcore foodie, know that Teton Valley nor Jackson Hole is NYC nor any other world renowned foodie town (wink wink), but there are a few gems!
$1 Tacos on Tuesdays, pretty great margaritas that don't taste like processed sweet/tart mix (order the Lime). Nice servers :)

Tasty. Unassuming. Nice servers. Personal favorite is the veggie burrito as it actually has veggies beyond just peppers. The mole is slightly sweet, but pretty solid, too. Not easy to find good Mexican food in Idaho, but this place meets the need.

Driggs Spots + Victor Emporium
Down the road in Victor is where you'll find this old-school cool soda fountain. Infamous huckleberry milkshakes + ice cream, espresso, beer, t-shirts, souvenirs and sporting goods. Fly fishing essentials and other outdoor goods available here. Long-time old favorite stop after long hot mountain bike rides in the summer for those milkshakes!

Golf
The West side of the Tetons has long been the favorite for those who love golf. Springtime comes sooner than on the other side of the massive Teton Range, so the grass is green earlier, the temps warm up sooner, and the sun shines longer with epic sunsets.
