About Jackson

Tucked away in Wyoming’s Jackson Hole Valley is the small town of Jackson, a popular destination for outdoor lovers all year long.

Jackson is famous for its three surrounding ski areas and its proximity to the Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks. Summer or winter, there is a surplus of activities just waiting for you to try. Take on snow sports at the ski resorts, hike inside the national parks, tour the wildlife refuges, take to the river to play in the water, and, since you are in the cowboy state, try a horseback riding tour.

After a busy day enjoying the great outdoors, you can make your way into downtown Jackson. See a show at the Jackson Hole Play House, browse the small shops, dine at the local eateries, and make sure to visit the town square!
