What to do in Jackson

Few towns embody the vastness and beauty of the American West like Jackson, with its open spaces flanked by the gushing Snake River and the towering Teton Mountains, the tallest of which rises to 13,770 feet. Jackson is equal parts cowboy and adrenaline junkie. During winter, top-notch boarders and skiers flock to Jackson Hole Mountain Resort for downhill fun. With serious terrain and one of the steepest vertical drops on the continent, the mountain is not for the faint of heart. When the snow begins to melt, the rivers pick up steam. Rafting the Snake is a must for active visitors, as is a hike in the Tetons. At night, flaunt flannel and cowboy boots at the rodeo. Each Wednesday and Saturday night from June through the end of September, Jackson’s finest wranglers, ropers, and riders saddle up at the Teton County Fairgrounds.

Traveler Reviews of Jackson

Pieter rates Jackson
Would give it 5 stars if it weren't so freakin' expensive. The ski resort is one of the best in the country (and steep!) and the town is about an Old West throwback, even if there are more Range Rovers than ponies these days. But the best time of year is summer. Camping on Jenny Lake, hiking through wildflower fields in the Grand Tetons, fly-fishing for rainbow trout... you can do it all in Jackson.
