Grand Tetons/Yellowstone/Jackson

Jump to last reply

Me, my mom, and my sister are hoping to check out some of the national parks on our bucket list over fourth of July weekend. We were thinking Grand Tetons and Yellowstone would hopefully be doable. We live in Chicago so hope to fly into Jackson and go from there. We only have about 6/7 days. Is it realistic to be able to see both GT and Yellowstone as well as leave time for traveling to Jackson airport?

We are intersted in casual hiking, kayaking, horseback riding, and possibly spending a day or night in Jackson to check out the town/tram/whatever. We are in the very beginning stages of planning this, but hope we can work out a decent itinerary.

Any suggestions? We would also be willing to cut out Yellowstone if it doesn't have as much to offer as Grand Tetons. All in all we are looking for some beautiful scenery and some fun things to do. ALSO we would be willing to do a different park entirely if there's any suggestions for that! THANKS FOR ANY HELP!
