WHAT MAKES A PERFECT FLY-IN DESTINATION?
Of course, a good on-field restaurant is a great starting point, but going beyond the average hundred-dollar hamburger, it’s nice to have a museum or other on-field attraction. And if the field is located near one of North America’s top recreational spots, so much the better!
Driggs-Reed Memorial (KDIJ), just a mile or so west of the Idaho-Wyoming border, meets all these requirements. It has an upscale restaurant that goes well beyond the typical airport diner, a small but well-organized museum, and it’s just a short flight from Jackson Hole, Wyo.
Kate and I visited Driggs on the way home from our vacation trip to Jackson Hole last summer, but if you find yourself in the area, it’s an ideal location for a weekend fly-out.
