I recommend you spend a maximum of one day in Grand Teton NP; just make sure you get in a sunrise at Grand Teton (go to Oxbow Bend - see Somthing Fishy's TR up-thread).
The rest of your time save for Yellowstone, there's just so much there to see.

Agree.

Although I went to Schwabacher's Landing for sunrise (following @somthingsfishy directions ) and was beautiful as well.

If you want to make sunrise at Grand Teton then wake up a little earlier on Thursday to get there on time and spend the day there.

The problem with sunrises is you need to wake up early to see it there's real way around that. Obviously you need to decide how badly you want it and if it's worth waking up for.

That. Do you want to see what is often the most beautiful sunrise in America or not ;D? If yes, wake up early. You'll survive.

And sunset in the Tetons is weak, the sun falls behind the mountains in the late afternoon and there usually isn't much to see at sunset.

Neither. The show begins before the actual sunrise. Google the sunrise time for your dates and be there at least half an hour before.

Yes of course, I meant Schwabacher's Landing, my mistake.

Listen to ^this^ guy! Take it from me, I'm not a sunrise/sunset guy, and definitely don't enjoy getting up that early in the morning (especially with kids in tow).
Hence I was very hesitant to go for this. But I went ahead and listened to @Something Fishy, and boy was that worth it!
My DW and I had no regrets, to say the least.

I have a 5 night stay at the brand new Marriott in Jackson Hole. I will only be using 3 of the five nights. So 2 nights available for sale - Aug 5-7 (Sunday-Tuesday) or Aug 10-12 (Friday-Sunday). I have two rooms each nights. Please PM if you are interested. $200 per room per night OBO (hotel rate is over $500 with taxes).


Where r u staying the other nights? cant seem to find availability in the park
