JacksonUnited States of America

Highbrow culture meets a host of exciting outdoor activities in this mountain town surrounded by Wyoming’s Grand Teton National Park.

Whether you’re seeking world-class skiing, postcard-worthy mountain vistas or restaurants that rival those in major cities, Jackson delivers. The Wyoming town has carved out a name for itself as a destination for outdoor enthusiasts and sophisticates.

Jackson’s Town Square looks like something from a Western movie. Note the unique arches, constructed from hundreds of elk antlers, marking each of the square’s corners. Browse the surrounding restaurants, shops and galleries.

While exploring the Jackson Hole valley, watch for moose, grizzly bears, bison, foxes and other unique wildlife. See thousands of elk in Jackson’s National Elk Refuge. View the wildlife from your car on the main road. For a unique experience, ride in a horse-drawn sleigh during snowy months.

Appreciate animals from another perspective in the National Museum of Wildlife Art, which overlooks the National Elk Refuge. Browse through thousands of paintings and sculptures depicting the world’s wildlife.

Take advantage of northwest Wyoming’s top-notch skiing conditions. At Jackson Hole Mountain Resort, one of the world’s top-rated resorts, brave one North America’s longest vertical drops. Less than 1 mile (1.6 kilometers) from Jackson’s Town Square, reach the slopes of Snow King Mountain Resort, a smaller mountain with luxurious accommodations.

The south end of Grand Teton National Park is essentially Jackson’s backyard. Discover stunning snow-capped mountains, alpine lakes and a plethora of wildlife in the park. Drive along Teton Park Road for unparalleled views of the Teton Range, the Jackson Hole valley and Jackson Lake. Relax on the shores of Jenny Lake or hike the popular Hidden Falls trail.

Drive about an hour north to Yellowstone National Park. In the country’s first national park, find feats of nature at every turn. Old Faithful, Artist’s Point and Mammoth Hot Springs are not to be missed.

Visit Jackson in any season. In winter, it is dominated by winter sports, while summer ushers in hikers and warm-weather outdoor enthusiasts. Things slow down in spring and fall, although the area’s natural beauty remains breathtaking.
