EAT.STAY.SHOP.PLAY. PLAY Needless to say, Jackson is the ultimate playground for all. So much to do—you need to stay a month! White Water Rafting There are lots of raft- ing companies, and you really can’t go wrong with any of them. But if you want a little less “white knuckle” experience, we love to take friends on a scenic float trip. This is far more relaxing, plus you get a chance to stay on the river longer and enjoy the spectacular scenery—your chance to see bald eagles, beavers, moose and other sorts of wildlife. Barker-Ewing is a great company since they have access to the “Deadman’s Bar to Moose” stretch of the Snake River. Your trip will end right at Moose where Dornans is located. This is a great place to grab a bottle of wine at the wine shop and head to the upper deck at Dornans, where you can enjoy pizza while overlooking the Snake River and Tetons.

Jenny Lake seems to be one of the most popular, but we love Phelps Lake just as much (it’s not nearly as crowded). Phelps offers a moderate hike around a beautiful lake. There is also a 40-foot boulder that you can jump off into the lake—sounds scary, but truly fun and exhila- rating for both kids and adults. The Laurance S. Rockefeller Preserve Center, located right at Phelps Lake, allows you to peruse wonderful books about the area and watch a lovely interactive slide FALL 2017 43
