      We are a family of four adults 54, 55, 24,20. We would like to know the best things to do on NYE, do we stay in a hotel on the waterfront or downtown? Also do we splash out on one of the hotel packages or is there enough to do around the waterfront/copley square with the first night celebration. We are there for five nights, is everything open, what itinerary would be best and can anyone recommend any mid range hotels and restaurants? Thank you

      Best Camping in Kauai

      Kauai Sep 5, 2016 at 11:43 AM

      Husband and I want to do 4 nights in Kauai, then head to Maui. It will be around Christmas, probably December 25 to December 30 in Kaui, then December 30-January 4 in Maui. We want to tent camp to save money, and spend what we save on a rental car, but I'm open for suggestions for cheap cabin accommodations. I've been researching the cabins at Koke'e State Park, Tent Camping at Camp Sloggett (they have a hot shower, which I found appealing, but there are some mixed reviews). Any suggestions for beach camping? Since we have a car should we stay on the beach instead as it will be warmer? We love hiking, which is why I was thinking Koke'e, but I also want to explore some cute towns and enjoy the beaches. Never been to Hawaii, but we are from Alaska so roughing it is not a problem for us, lol!

      • Arches National Park
      • Aspen (Maroon Bells)

      My primary interest is Photography (Nature, Wildlife, Sunrise/Sunsets, Star trails, Milky Way etc). Please let me know the most scenic routes to take from Vegas to Denver and what places/parks can I cover for Day and Night Photography.

      Note: I have been to Zion, Bryce, Lake Powell, Antelope Canyon earlier, so not too keen to see them again, but wouldn’t mind including them if it takes me through a really awesome scenic byway or dark night skies. Also, I don’t mind hectic driving schedules if that helps me get good shots. I do understand looking at my plan that it involves almost 250 miles of driving every day.

      Thanks,

      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.

      Hi,

      My wife and I will arrive in Jackson Hole airport at 3 pm this Friday. The plan is to drive to Teton, stay in a campground for 2 nights, then move to Yellowstone for 6 days.
      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?

      Routefinding - Lower Saddle to Teton Crest Trail

      by figgskzoo Online Now Jul 29, 2004 at 11:30 AM

      Does anyone have any info regarding a possible route westward from Lower Saddle to the Teton Crest Trail, perhaps descending into the Dartmouth Cirque via Dartmouth Couloir on the West face of the Grand then proceeding west to gain the Teton Crest Trail? I'll be attempting an ascent of the Grand via Upper Exum, then descend to Lower Saddle and hoping to proceed west (either directly or indirectly) to the Teton Crest Trail. Is this pure folly? Any help would be most gratefully received, and if you're in the area on the night of Aug 5th, come to Snake River Brewing and I'll buy you a beer. Thanks in advance! -figgs Kalamazoo, MI
