Victor, Idaho – The Chiller, Cooler, Cheaper Jackson
Thinking of heading to Jackson? Check out Victor instead. It’s the chiller, cooler, cheaper version of Jackson on the Idaho side of Teton Pass. It has the nicest, coolest locals we’ve met anywhere, a few great breweries and restaurants, and is a mere 30 minutes from Jackson. It’s quite close to a really cool larger town, called Driggs, and there’s a bike trail you can take between all the towns on the Idaho side. Jackson is an awesome place to spend a few days, but if you want to chill with the outdoor adventurers and locals, then stay in Victor, Alpine, or Driggs instead.
