Teton County is home to the cities of Driggs, Tetonia, Victor. Established in 1915, it was named after the Teton Mountains to the east. The county had a population of 10,170 in 2010, up from 5,999 in 2000. The Teton Valley was discovered by John Colter in 1808, a member of the Lewis and Clark Expedition. It became known as Pierre's Hole, and it hosted the well-attended 1832 Rendezvous, which was followed by the Battle of Pierre's Hole. Driggs is a popular area for mountain biking during the drier months of July through September. Victor is the largest city in Teton County. It has become the bedroom community for the nearby resort area of Jackson Hole.

Shopping and Dinning - Teton County offers a variety of dinning. From mom and pop dinners to steakhouses, there is plenty to choose from. There is also a few shops along the way. Book Stores, home decor, outdoor gear, and even gourmet sea salts. Local farmers also bring their produce to sell at the Teton Valley Farmer's market that runs from June through September.

Parks and Recreation - In 2007, National Geographic magazine listed Driggs as one of the 10 best outdoor recreation destinations in the U.S. While the nearby town of Jackson has ballooned into a tourist megalopolis, rustic Driggs, on the western flank of the Tetons, manages to keep its feet on the ground as it morphs into an outdoor-adventure capital. Friendly and unpretentious, Driggs is for people who love the mountains enough to live, work, and play in them—including many of the service-industry stiffs who keep Jackson running but can't afford to live there. The Teton River is the best place to cast for cutthroat, rainbow, and brook trout. Or take a DIY hike 8 miles along the South Teton Creek to Alaska Basin, then continue 2.7 miles  to Hurricane Pass for a spectacular overlook of Teton Valley and the town of Jackson.
