To help you make the most of your time there, here are our picks for some of the best things to do inside Grand Teton National Park.
Go on a Scenic Float Trip
Hiking or driving through Grand Teton National Park is one thing, but seeing it from the Snake River is an entirely different experience. It’s also a great opportunity to relax a bit and take in the scenery! You’ll see beautiful mountain vistas and spot all kinds of local wildlife while floating down the river. Solitude Float Trips are the only river trips that are 100% inside Grand Teton National Park, so if you want the best views of the park, be sure to book with us!
Moose Wilson Road
You can’t miss Moose Wilson Road, a scenic drive that connects the towns of Moose and Wilson. It’s a popular route for its views of forests, valleys, mountains, wetlands, and waterways—and, true to its name, you might spot moose as you drive, along with beavers, black bears, and other native wildlife.
People think of Jackson Hole as a destination for skiing and hiking, but inside Grand Teton National Park, you’ll find the pristine Jackson Lake, which is perfect for swimming! This beautiful alpine lake is surrounded by mountains, so it’s also a great destination for sightseeing cruises. Don’t forget to bring your fishing pole if you’re a fishing enthusiast!
Another must if you’re visiting Grand Teton National Park, you’ll be treated to panoramic views of the park, the Teton Range, and Jackson Lake when you trek up Signal Mountain. Don’t worry, though—you don’t have to climb or hike, you can drive right up! If you can, visit at sunset and make sure you bring a camera.
If you haven’t had your fill of being out on the water, make sure you carve out some time for a visit to Jenny Lake. Rent a kayak or canoe and enjoy the stunning views. The Jenny Lake Scenic Drive is also an excellent activity on its own!
Mormon Row Historic District
Grand Teton National Park has a lot to enjoy for nature lovers, but history buffs will find a number of destinations to pique their interest, too. One of the most popular is the Mormon Row historic district, featuring picturesque barns and houses that remain from Mormom homesteaders that settled the area starting in the late 1800s. There are a number of other historical homesteads and ranches to visit within the borders of the park if you enjoy your trip to Mormon Row.
