Stanley, Idaho- The Ultimate Family Destination
Lately I find myself explaining to potential clients across the globe why Stanley, Idaho is such a great family destination.
First, in an effort to offer full transparency… I not only make my lively hood catering to family’s adventurous desires, but I am also the Stanley Chamber of Commerce President. So if you are wondering if I am biased? Well… Yes, but I can also validate my opinion.
Like many of my clients I am always looking to exceed last years family vacation. To my wife’s dismay, I am a 34 year old kid. I love to play outside and can rival any 12 year old’s appetite for fun and adventure. I appreciate the common comforts, but also seek unique off-the-beaten-path locals that host a variety recreational opportunities, all while being safe and relaxing. I love finding a place that should be the next Jackson Hole or Moab… But is lucky enough to be overlooked by the development monster.
Stanley is a very unique place. It is like no other place in the world with its amazing rivers, endless trails, hundreds of mountain lakes and a variety of natural hot springs. No other town can boast such a magical confluence of the Sawtooth Mountains (American Alps) and the Salmon River of No return (longest free flowing river in the US) all smack dab in the middle of the largest wilderness in the United States.
Families can raft the Salmon, hike the Sawtooths, explore Redfish Lake, bike smooth singletrack, ride a horse through the wilderness, fish for trout and soak in natural hotsprings. All while enjoying a variety historic lodges, mountain ranches, riverside cabins, restaurants and shops.
