The Jackson Hole valley is approximately 97 km (60 mi) long and 24 km (15 mi) wide, encompassing the town of Jackson, Teton Village, and the northern section of Grand Teton National Park.
Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Lone Star Geyser and Mormon Row Historic District. Get out of town with these interesting Jackson Hole side-trips: Yellowstone National Park (Grand Prismatic Spring & Old Faithful), Moose (Snake River Bridge, Chapel of the Transfiguration, & more) and Grand Teton (in Grand Teton National Park). There's still lots to do: identify plant and animal life at Laurance Rockefeller Preserve and make a trip to Town Square.

The glaciers from which Glacier National Park takes its name mostly dissipated eons ago, but they left behind a scoured landscape of high and steep mountain peaks, sparkling lakes, lush alpine meadows, and thick forests.
Start off your visit on the 25th (Thu): explore the wealth of natural beauty at Waterton-Glacier International Peace Park. Keep things going the next day: explore and take pictures at Going-to-the-Sun Road, then get to know the fascinating history of Garden Wall, and then trek along Grinnell Glacier.

Use Inspirock's suggestions to plan your Glacier National Park trip and find the best activities and attractions for your vacation.

Do a combination of flight and taxi from Jackson Hole to Glacier National Park in 6 hours. Alternatively, you can drive; or do a combination of bus, car, and train. Traveling from Jackson Hole in July, expect nights in Glacier National Park to be about the same, around 49°F, while days are somewhat warmer, around 85°F. Wrap up your sightseeing by early afternoon on the 27th (Sat) to allow enough time to travel back home.
