What's better, staying in Teton Village or staying in Jackson Hole? If you’re headed to Jackson Hole this year, we suggest staying in the resort-style area of Teton Village, or just down the road at the tucked-away Aspens...and here's why:
- Teton Village has fewer crowds. Less crowds means more space to roam and explore without touching elbows with your neighbor.
- Teton Village is close to everything. It's an easy 30-minute drive to Downtown Jackson Hole and just a 5-minute drive to Teton Village.
- Teton Village has the best views. Come back from your adventures to a beautiful home with beauitful views.
While the city of Jackson is lively - full of specialty shops, boutique restaurants, and more - it tends to draw major crowds in the high season. Teton Village has fewer crowds during summer, plus a variety of restaurants and boutique shops to enjoy. It's also prime for wildlife watching as moose, bears and other critters call this area home. It's the perfect central location for an epic Jackson Hole vacation.
What’s the Difference Between Teton Village and Jackson?
Teton Village is a mountain village area located just a short drive outside of the city of Jackson. This area is situated at the base of Jackson Hole’s Mountain Resort and is home to many boutique restaurants, ski shops, and more.
Both Jackson and Teton Village have a wide range of fine dining, entertainment, and adventure options to choose from. The main difference between Teton Village and Jackson are the crowds! The summer months tend to draw a huge crowd of people to Jackson, while Teton Village offers a much more relaxed pace. It also has a wide range of vacation homes, condos, and cabins to fit every budget and family size!
