Things to Do in Jackson Hole
Wildlife and wild times make for thrilling adventures ~ Jackson Hole, WY
Situated in about a 50-mile-long valley running north to south, Jackson Hole gets its name from the dramatic, continuous peaks that seem to engulf its base below. Known for its world-class skiing in the winter months, Jackson Hole is also home to treasured historic districts, renowned parks, and a unique combination of enduring western pride coupled with a contemporary-day personality to entertain even the most diverse group of tourists, travelers, and families.
There are four main distinctive areas from which you can choose your Jackson Hole rental: the quaint simplicity of the old west in the Town of Jackson; the lively excitement of the ski resort vibe in Teton Village; the more remote and discreet town setting of Wilson, Wyoming; and the more elevated experience up another 1,000 feet in the hills of the prominent Amangani/Spring Creek Ranch area. But at one point or another, you’ll want to experience them all.
