Amazing short drive
Swan Valley to Victor takes less than half an hour if you don’t face any obstacles. It’s only a little over 21 miles between the two communities. Victor is a little older. Both places have great ice cream stands. In Swan Valley you can get a square cone and then go to Angus Café for a burger. Or if you can put off lunch, then at Victor you can stop by the Emporium for a cone.
Swan Valley is a bit more rustic and offers a quiet life. If you love fishing, it is a great place to consider for a second home or a place to retire. I stopped at the tank and spoke to the fishermen. Friendly people but then life became stress free.

Victor isn’t exactly a city, but it does have a busy downtown, and like neighboring Drigs, both communities have great restaurants and a vibrant arts and entertainment culture. These have become Jackson’s bedroom communities. Or, people who couldn’t buy a home in Jackson bought a place this side of the Grand Tetons.
I’ve been planning this trip for several weeks but the weather on the weekend was not helpful. Oh, and the fuel cost makes me think twice about long trips away from home. Even if I didn’t cross into Wyoming, Swan Valley would probably require Victor to stay overnight.
