Nestled at the southern end of Teton Valley, Victor Idaho is surrounded by three mountain ranges. This small town packs quite the punch when it comes to community events, restaurants, and outdoor recreation.
Why should I visit Victor Idaho?
Victor's sense of community is hard to miss and for such a small town (2,000 people live here), there is quite a bit to do and see. It's no joke that most of the residents are major outdoor enthusiasts.
Where is Victor?
Victor sits at the southern end of Teton Valley. It's the first town you'll run into if driving over Teton Pass from Jackson or Pine Creek Pass from Swan Valley. Drive 8 miles north to reach the city of Driggs.
What sort of services and amenities does Victor offer?
Locals like to think that Victor has some of the best restaurants in the valley. From the hearty meals at the Knotty Pine to made-to-order southern entrees at Scratch, there is a wide variety. Victor has one small grocery store (you'll find everything you need but at a higher price) with a great deli. There are a couple gas stations, a bank, post office, a bike shop, and a movie theater. Lodging in Victor is minimal with a motel, RV park, and a 4 star resort at Teton Springs.
