We are 2 people, in our 60’s and into sightseeing- and wildlife. We have 10 days in late August, or early Sept. Husband has bad knee, so hiking will be minimal.
We are in the early stages of planning and trying to figure out which way to do this loop. We are coming from the east coast. Some of the places we definitely want to see are: Black Hills, Custer State Park, Badlands, Mt Rushmore, some of Yellowstone (OF), Grand Tetons and Jackson Hole.
Hotels: What are good base town(s) for lodging?
Where would a good overnight stop be when heading out to the Tetons from the Black Hills, or can we just drive in a day? While in Grand Teton area, we’d like to stay somewhere with a view of the Tetons and visit Jackson Hole for a day or so. Hotel suggestions?
Airports: Denver airport would have the best flights, but is it feasible given our time frame and proximity to our sites? We are flexible on dates and airports. Also, thoughts on Car rentals i.e. one way?
Thank you all in advance.
