Being in the Teton Valley for Thanksgiving has been our family’s tradition since we’ve lived in Idaho but I’ve never shared about this special place on Boise With Kids! I’ll put together a roundup of our family’s favorite spots to explore, eat and shop when visiting Jackson, Wyoming, Grand Teton National Park and the surrounding area another time but wanted to share some favorites from our recent stay in Driggs this past weekend.
Driggs is located about 5 or so hours from Boise and is packed with great options for adventuring and exploring this incredibly picturesque part of Idaho. If you're traveling with kids and staying in or near Driggs, you've got to check out these three must-visit places!
Address: 10 S Main St, Driggs, ID 83422
This cute corner pharmacy is in a 100 year old building in the middle of Main Street. It’s more than your average pharmacy—it’s kind of a time capsule! They've got everything you need from crafts and games to books and other supplies you might need for your adventures. Oh! And the best part - an old soda fountain with famous huckleberry shakes!
Teton Geo Center
Address: 60 S Main St, Driggs, ID 83422
This museum is free and very hands on - two of my favorite descriptions of a museum! This nonprofit’s goal is to showcase and maintain the unique characteristics of the Teton Valley through education and advocacy. Families can really immerse themselves in the history of the area and foster a deeper appreciation for this special place. There’s also a small rock climbing gym next door too. Keep it in mind if you need the kids to burn off energy or need a spot to escape to on a bad weather day.
Grand Targhee Resort:
Address: 3300 Ski Hill Rd, Alta, WY 83414
Whether you’re there in the winter to ski/snowboard or visiting in the summer to hike or bike, Grand Targhee is a very approachable and beautiful spot just a 20 minute drive from Driggs. Its varied activities cater to all seasons, making it an ideal destination for families looking for both winter snow play and summer outdoor adventures. You've gotta visit for both!
I can't recommend visiting the Teton Valley enough. This special part of Idaho (and Wyoming) guarantees an awesome getaway for families craving a mix of small-town charm and big adventures. It's truly Heaven on Earth!
