Grand Teton National Park Grand Teton National Park, Wyoming
Grand Teton National Park is a gorgeous park situated in the Rocky Mountain Range in northwest Wyoming. The park offers something for everyone: difficult hiking paths, walking trails built by American Indians, and a wealth of cultural history from American Indians to homesteads and cattle ranches. Grand Teton features a huge variety of landscapes, from mountains to lakes to valley and rivers that all provide you with gorgeous views of the natural beauty. For winter sports in the park, November-March is the best time to go since this is when the area gets the most amount of snow and temperatures range from 5-25° Fahrenheit. For hiking and water sports, June-August is the best time to go, as temperatures stay around 75° F throughout the day.
Sights
The beauty of the park is truly a sight to behold, especially at one of the various outlooks. The Oxbow Bend outlook is great for bird watching and getting views of Mt. Moran while the Cathedral Group outlook offers views of the three highest peaks in the range: Teewinot, The Grand Teton, and Mt. Owen. The park has a long history of being home to American Indians along with cattle ranchers. You can explore the Indian history at the Colter Bay Indian Arts Museum which features Indian artifacts and a presentation of the park. Explore the history of the ranchers at the Chapel of Transfiguration, an Episcipalian log cabin which is best known for their stained glass windows that feature images of the mountain landscapes in them.
Surrounding Area
There are a few key areas in the park where you'll find lodging and restaurants. One of the largest areas is Colter Bay Village, located on Jackson Lake, where you'll find mountain cabins, an RV park, a grocery store, and a few restaurants. The village is open from the end of May to the beginning of October, annually. The Jenny Lake and Signal Mountain areas feature some of the most popular hiking opportunities and each have camp grounds for visitors to use. Just outside of Grand Teton is Yellowstone Park, the national park famous for their geysers and hot springs.

Activities
Grand Teton is one of the best places to enjoy adventure activities such as bike riding, canoeing, and hiking. You can take a 2.5 mile hike to the Hidden Falls, a group of gorgeous waterfalls and white waters. From the falls, you can continue up to Inspiration Point which offers some of the most beautiful views of Jackson Hole and Jenny Lake. The trail continues on to Cascade Canyon and Lake Solitude, making it the perfect, full-day, hiking adventure. If you prefer something a little cooler, you can go canoeing along Snake River, beginning at the Jackson Lake Dam going towards the Pacific Creek Landing Takeout. This route takes you past some of the most beautiful views of the Teton Range. While you're out there, keep your eyes peeled for eagles and pelicans.
Food and Dining
Restaurants in the area are fairly relaxed and feature predominately American Cuisine, with Thai and Mexican restaurants located on the outskirts of the park. Within the park, most restaurants can be found inside of the lodges and hotels and have buffet style layouts. Be aware that some restaurants are only open during the summer season. If you need to stock up on food for a hike or picnic, there are a few general stores and trading posts in the park where you can pick up everything you need.

Transportation
You can fly into the park via Jackson Hole Airport, which is located on the west side of the park and offers seasonal service. You can also drive into the park, which is often the best option since driving is the best way to get around the park. For the avid outdoors person, you can get around the park by hiking or cycling. No matter how you get into the park, prepare to pay an entrance fee. The cost of entry varies based on your vehicle or if you are hiking/cycling around the park.
