The easiest way to get to the Grand Tetons quickly is by flying into Jackson Hole, Wyoming. The airport is very small, but sits right in the valley with the mountains surrounding the airport. The city of Jackson Hole is only about 15 minutes from the airport and easily accessible from the airport either by taxi or rental car.
To travel around Jackson Hole and the Grand Tetons, you will need a car or should plan to visit with an organized group. Having a car will allow you to travel to different parts of the parks including trailheads for hiking and viewpoints from the road. It will also give you flexibility to day-trip to Yellowstone National Park just north of Grand Tetons National Park. If visiting in the winter and planning to ski or snowboard in the area, there are shuttles that take visitors from some housing areas to the base of the mountain.
Jackson Hole is the main town in the area and has the largest selection of restaurants, shops, and accommodations to choose from. It is located about 15 minutes from the airport, 30 minutes from the entrance to the Grand Tetons National Park, and it has its own ski area. There are a variety of hotels, motels, and airbnb locations available. If you are considering using airbnb, Outpost JH is a company overseeing many properties within the area.
Teton Village is located 30 minutes from the airport, 15 minutes from downtown Jackson Hole, and about 5 minutes from the Granite Canyon (SW) entrance to Grand Tetons National Park. Teton Village also has its own ski resort. The area is large comprised of condos, houses, and lodges but the location is key. This is a great place to base yourself if you have a car that allows you to travel outside the village.
Wilson is located about 30 minutes from the airport, 15 minutes from downtown Jackson Hole, and 10-15 minutes from the Granite Canyon (SW) entrance to Grand Tetons National Park. Wilson is a cute town with many residential properties as well as a few small shops. It is another easy place to stay if you have a car to travel outside of the town.
