Tony's is great and easy to find. O'Rourke's too. But many really good places to eat are not that easy to spot if you don't ask when you get here. There's good eatin' in places that look like a gas station or a sporting goods store or a shack or someone's home or a bus or even an airport. You just have to strike up a conversation with a local. Start off by talking about the weather and you're in like Flint.

Tony's Pizza on Main Street is the bomb! Great Italian food, not just pizza, friendly staff, warm welcoming atmosphere, and it's open on Sunday and past 9 at night!

My family and I moved here 4 years ago from back east suburbia and have never looked back. It was the best move we ever made! Every day is an adventure in the most beautiful setting a nature lover could ever imagine. Sometimes we forget how lucky we are to be here and articles like this one in National Geographic remind us that the whole world isn't this great.

As for the best places for visitors, my advice is to come here and ask. People are super friendly and readily point them out.

Hiking, biking, skiing, camping all within a few miles. My husband and I traveled across the country looking for the perfect place to live and stopped here three years ago. It is an absolutely beautiful valley.

For dollar's value, yet right on Ski Hill road with a nice cozy atmosphere. The Teton Valley Cabins is my pick. They allow pets!

Dotted with great little mom and pop shops (and proudly not one big box store) and surrounded by mountains that frame some of the most glorious sunrises and sunsets where passers-thru are forced to pull over and take a quick photo before the moment passes. A great place to load up on gear and goods and disappear into the mountains for a while!

I live here and my favorite things to do are mountain bike in the Big Hole Mtns., catch giant cutthroat trout on the Teton River and finish it all up with a world famous Huckleberry milkshake at the Victor Emporium!

I dragged my wife here 32 years ago, she was kicking and screaming the whole way. She says that if I tried to move her out of here now, it would be the kicking and screaming thing all over again.

Eating, Warbirds Restaurant at the Driggs Reed Memorial Airport is great. See the operational planes in the museum. Oh did I mention that the airport is the best little airport around!

We spent the night at the Teton hot Air Balloon Festival in Driggs about 21 years ago. We lived in Idaho Falls at the time and went up to Driggs to camp in a circla on the field where they launch. It was amazing! We woke up at dawn to the sound of balloons being filled and were able to walk around and watch them all launch. there was a craft and Native American fair there too at the time. if I remember correctly. Jackson Hole on the other hand was a tourist trap.

I love the Teton Valley Cabins or the Linn Ranch for places to stay. Forage is my favorite place to eat for dinner, and I can't live without the Milk Creek Grille weekend breakfasts.
