    we are planning to visit Jackson Hole 7/5/11 to try some rafting. we have never done this so most of us in our group are not looking for a lot of thrill, just a little. we will have 7 children and 5 adults. ideally we would like a mild trip, stop for lunch or supper after which those with more experience and adventure could continue on to some rapids while the rest of us could do something else. Any instruction you could give me to plane this would be most appreciated. We also need a place to stay and where to eat. Thank you for your assistance.

      Hi Skipper,
      Glad to hear that you are planning to visit Jackson this summer. There are plenty of different rafting companies in town, and they all raft the same portion of the Snake River. We suggest that you go with Dave Hansen Whitewater. They offer a variety of trip options: from a scenic float down the river through a whitewater trip through stage 3 and one 4 (with 5 being the highest) rapids. They also have a combination trip where you can do a scenic float in the morning and then raft the whitewater in the afternoon. They are good about customizing trips so I would suggest giving them a call. The half day trips tend to last 4 hours so you could easily choose the scenic tour or whitewater trip to do in the morning or afternoon and you will have the rest of the day to explore Jackson.

      As for a place to stay, The Painted Buffalo Inn is a 2 star hotel located in downtown Jackson within walking distance to the town square, as well as many restaurants and shops. We offer a Whitewater Rafting special where you can receive 10% off of your stay as well as 10% off of your trip with Dave Hansen, so if you do decide that our hotel is right for you, please call our front desk to book that package as we have not loaded it on our website yet. If you are looking for a 3 star hotel The Lexington and Wyoming Inn are great choices. Lastly, it sounds like you have quite the crowd. If you have a car and think that renting a nice condo at a 4 star resort would be something you are interested the Spring Creek Ranch has great condos located on a butte west of town which overlook the Teton Range. The view from the butte is breath taking, especially at sunrise.

      There are plenty of great places to eat in town. The Teton Steakhouse is a family friendly restaurant with a great salad bar. Another popular restaurant is Bubba’s BBQ, which is located right across the street from our hotel. They also have a great salad bar as well as delicious breakfasts (try their biscuits and gravy) and bbq options. My most recent post lists the Top 5 Breakfast spots in Jackson and I also blogged about fine dining restaurants in Jackson a few months ago. Please let me know if you have any further questions, but I hope that you give us a chance to host your family and friends this summer in Jackson.
