Daytime itinerary suggestions for Jackson/Graned Teton NP

I will be traveling with friends to the Jackson Hole/ Yellowstone area arriving in Jackson May 27. Spending Sat/Sun/Mon night in Jackson at the Alpine House then moving to Bar-N-Ranch in West Yellowstone for Tue/Wed/Thur nights.

So the rough plan is to see Grand Teton NP and Jackson Hole on Sunday and Monday then drive to YS on Tuesday and see YSNP Wednesday and Thursday.

As this is our first trip to the area we need any and all suggestions as far as daytime itineraries for both locales.

We're all active people in our late 20's so some short hike suggestions would be nice and we also thought of doing a float trip on the Snake River. Also maybe a hot air balloon ride over the Teton's too.

Thanks in advance for any insight and suggestions.

I was going to suggest driving over Teton Pass into Idaho (great view of the Hole from the top!), but a hot air balloon ride would be much better!!

Be sure to take the boat ride across Jenny LAke and hike to the falls.

A great place for lunch is Donagans.. Donavan's...not sure, but it's right at the enterance to the park. Sit out on he deck... great views!!
