      Planning a Possible Road Trip

      New Mexico 7 hours ago

      Need to get from Fort Worth Texas to SE Arizona early March with probably 1 overnight stop but want to break up the driving into maybe approx. 4 hour stretches. Any suggestions for "must see" locations? Would prefer to avoid too much Interstate driving but conscious I am travelling alone so not wishing to go too far off track. My preferences are for scenery, science and nature as opposed to cities and shopping. Clean budget motel about half way?

      01-Sep ==> Leave Grand Village Campground at 9 AM and head towards Grand Teton. After exploring GNTP, leave KOA Campground in evening. Overnight stay at KOA Campground.
      02-Sep ==> Leave KOA Campground at 10 AM (I have return flight from Salt Lake City at 6 PM) and head back to SLC.
      I will have one full day to explore Grand Teton. 42 miles is a loop and I am not able to understand that how should I put places in my one full day. What places should I visit and in what order ? We are not much into hiking, but small one is ok. Mostly we want to see beautiful places.

      Visitor's Center Locations

      by grandmaR Online Now Dec 10, 2009 at 1:39 PM

      My family visited this area including Yellowstone in 1948. We were driving our own car.

      I'm going back again in June 2010 to Yellowstone. My daughter and her family flew into Jackson Hole and rented a car, drove through Grand Teton to Yellowstone and then went to the Black Hills and Montana and went home from there. But not only is it much more expensive to fly into and out of diffeent aiports and to rent a car one way, but I don't want to do that much driving. So I'm flying into West Yellowstone and renting a car and visiting Yellowstone from there.

      I would like to pay a quick visit to the Grand Teton Visitor's Center to get my National Park Passport booklet stamped. Can I do this from West Yellowstone without driving too far? I have been unable to figure out just where the Visito's Ceneters are.

      I was told by park workers that they always have sites available in campgrounds

      Friday: I guess it will be too late to do/see anything, right or wrong? Are there any places that are spectacular in the sunset or where animals come out to drink at night?

      Saturday: What is the absolutely best way to spend a day in Teton? We are fit and like to hike but open to any activity.

      Are there places to buy food/supplies (store, not restaurant)?

      What car is better to rent? Does it make sense to get a convertible or an SUV?
