Best non-nature activites around Yellowstone and Grand Teton?

Jump to last reply

We are a 55ish couple working our way through the national parks. Last fall we spent two weeks in southern Utah visiting Arches, Canyonlands, Bryce Canyon and Zion (right during the government shutdown, but that's another story...)

We are making our first visit to Yellowstone and Grand Teton during the second half of September. For a variety of reasons (planned too late, don't have time to call every day looking for cancellations, and mostly because we avoid hotels whenever possible), we've rented two cabins -- five nights in West Yellowstone and five nights in Wilson -- so we can visit not only the parks, but the area in general.

We enjoy nature and scenery and hiking as much as anyone, and I have purchased "Yellowstone Treasures" and other guides for the parks. But we also like to explore the culture, history, dining, and entertainment options in places we visit. Since we will be there during the second half of September, which is late in the season, some things (like rodeos and summer concerts) are done for the year. But I have found things like the Jackson Tram, the Bar-T-5 Chuckwagon, Dornan's Chuckwagon (hootenanny on Monday nights!), the Jackson Playhouse ("Paint Your Wagon" this season) ... I'm pretty sure these are all still in operation in later September, but some may be winding down?

I would appreciate advice and suggestions for the best "non-nature" things to do at that time of year, in northwest Wyoming, eastern Idaho, or southern Montana. Since we do have 10 days, we have the time to drive a bit for something special. We live near Chicago, so "western" things are particularly attractive as something different than our daily lives, but we're open to most anything.

Thanks very much!
