Things to do in  Grand Teton National Park

Welcome to Grand Teton National Park

Towering over the valley of Jackson Hole—the town of Jackson is a serious outdoor hub and ideal basecamp—Grand Teton National Park is the stuff of mountaineer dreams. With 12 peaks over 12,000 feet (3,660 meters) and more than 100 backcountry and alpine lakes, the hiking, wildlife-viewing, and Instagramming ops here reign sublime. Come winter, things to do in Teton National Park revolve around one thing: snow. Cross-country ski, snowshoe, or simply marvel at Jenny Lake or the famous John Moulton Barn—every park scene is worthy of hanging over your mantel.

Colter Bay Visitor Center

Colter Bay Visitor Center

star-595
Nearly all visitors to Grand Teton National Park will stop at the Colter Bay Visitor Center, whether to pick up supplies, get trail information, or permits for camping and boating. With a nearby campground and set just minutes from the shores of stunning Lake Jackson, the Colter Bay Visitor Center is one of the park’s most popular—and busiest—areas. While here, instead of just swinging through for some maps or quickly arranging your permits, stop to read up on the park information and peruse the cultural exhibits. Most notable is the Indian Arts Museum, which houses 35 rare, American Indian artifacts from the David T. Vernon collection. While the original collection was much larger, the lack of proper facilities at the visitor center forced its relocation, with a handful of artifacts remaining here on the land where they were originally crafted. There are free, ranger-guided talks of the display each morning and afternoon, and once a week they even construct a traditional Native American teepee.More

Chapel of the Transfiguration

The log-cabin-style Chapel of the Transfiguration sits against the backdrop of the jagged Teton Range near the southern entrance of Grand Tetons National Park. The rustic church was built in 1925 with a window above the alter framing the majestic mountains. Today it still offers services and its scenic setting makes it a popular spot for weddings, sightseeing, and photography.More
