We booked a room at the last-minute on Booking.com after realizing we had spent too much time hiking and would not make it to our next city that night. The Pony Express Motel had clean, spacious rooms that were very affordable for couples or families. Jackson has several other lodging options as well. See camping options in and near the park here.

Teton offers more than 200 miles of hiking trails. The wildlife viewing at Teton is just as impressive as Yellowstone, and visitors can quickly spot wolves, bears, and moose if they are in the right place at the right time. See which areas offer the best chance to see animals here.

History lovers will find more than 300 historic buildings at the national park, including dude ranches, bath houses, cabins, and lodges. See a full list of the historic buildings here. After a day of exploring, check out the many shopping and dining options in downtown Jackson Hole. Our favorite casual dining option was Liberty Burger.
