It’s been over a month since we traveled to Wyoming and I miss it so much! I had a lot of requests for a travel guide from our trip. I wrote this one last year that has lots of good info! This guide will be an updated version with new things we checked out. I highly recommend you read my previous one! Jackson Hole is now our annual family trip destination and I cannot wait to go back next year!
The reason we love Wyoming so much it’s because there’s so much to do and it’s super family friendly.I highly recommend renting a car for getting around, and it was a must for us since we brought our kids. The square is where all the shops and restaurants are but there’s so much to do outside of that. Teton Village is about 20 mins from the square and it’s super popular in the winter for ski season.
This year, we rented this condo and were obsessed! It makes sense for us to rent a house versus a hotel room since we have two kids. We absolutely loved where we stayed and it was the most perfect location! It was right on the square and super walkable. I listed a bunch of hotel recommendations on my other guide, the only other one I want to add to that list is the CloudVeil hotel that just opened up and looks amazing! If we were to go without kids, we would stay there for sure!
Last year, I believe we went for four days but this time we stayed longer (6 days) and we are so happy we did that! Our days weren’t as jam packed and we had so much flexibility. When in Jackson, we normally just drive around and look for wildlife, go out to eat, hike, check out the park and explore. Last time we had a really close encounter with a moose and this year we saw a bear! It’s so nice seeing the animals with our kids and our older son is so fascinated by them.
As far as restaurants go, there are so many options! Again, my other guide lists out all my restaurant recommendations. I highly recommend making reservations ahead of time, a lot of the places we wanted to check out were booked. My top rec is The Local and Glorietta. Persephone bakery is my absolute favorite place! We went almost daily, they are open for breakfast and lunch. It’s super small inside but they have outdoor seating, just dress for the weather! I’ve also heard great things about the restaurants at the Four Season in Teton Village (reservations required) and the restaurant at Amangani (you can email them to reserve). Lastly, we checked out Snake River Brewery for the first time and we loved it so much that we went twice. The beer was great (they have food too) and it’s very family friendly.
Like I said, we love to hike when we are there but we are a little restricted on trails since we are carrying two kids. The Jenny Lake hike is great and so is Phelps Lake. Last year, the boat taxi was closed but we were able to use it this time and our son loved it. It takes you across Jenny Lake and there are other hikes you can do there. There’s so much to see at Grand Teton National Park so we did a lot of driving and sightseeing. The gondolas were also open this year in Teton Village so we were able to ride them up to the top. The views are amazing and there’s also a restaurant up top. I recommend researching when things close for the season to get ready for ski season. Another place we like to check out is Mormon Row, iconic! You can get beautiful pictures there and it gets crowded for sunrise and sunset.
Finally, I want to give a special shoutout to our photographer for our amazing family photos. This was a last minute decision and we are so glad we did them! I highly recommend booking her for your photography needs, she was also the sweetest and super knowledgeable on all the best photo spots.
Let me know if you have any questions! Until next time!
