Yellowstone, GTNP and Driggs Idaho for my 50th-help please

Jump to last reply

Hi. I keep changing my itinerary with the wealth of info here. We, a family of 4, kids of 10 and 12, will celebrate my 50th and son's 11 th during this trip next August. We did Acadia last year for 2 weeks and found that too much hiking, bad beds, no internet made for an at times grumpy daughter so am trying to mix it up here.

This trip will be 10 nights. We will land in Jackson around 2:30 pm (super early East Coast flight) and rent car and go to Signal Lodge where we will stay for 3 nights. I hear the food is good there so don't think we need to stock up with coolers or food - is that accurate? Is the only grocery store Alberson's in Jackson? We are debating between an upper lakefront or country room (about $80 cheaper per night). At a minimum we need 2 queens.

The next 5 nights are at YNP. We would need to stop in Jackson for a cooler and food/beverages. We have 3 nights at the Snow Lodge and then 2 western Cabins at Canyon. Am thinking of changing 1 night of Snow Lodge to Mammoth...comments? We have the chuckwagon dinner scheduled for my son's birthday.

The final 3 nights we are planning to rent a lovely house in Driggs, for a different and more peacefl view of the Tetons. I think a hot tub, laundry, privacy and creature comforts will be needed by then. We plan to visit upper and lower Mesa falls in Idaho, do a trail ride and dinner at either Lin Ranch or Grand Targhee Resort. Also want to do a rafting trip in Jackson (1 hour away.) http://www.vrbo.com/112834#. The restaurants also sound really good in Driggs.

How does this sound? Am I crazy for including Driggs?

The logistics of this trip are killing me!!
