7 Summer Days in Jackson Hole!
Summer is here and there’s so much to do! We have put together a few sample itineraries that you could base your trip off of if you were looking for suggestions. Are you a hiker, a fly fisherman, a wildlife enthusiast, rock climber, kayaker…or do you want a little taste of everything? There are so many places to explore and things to do! If you have a full day to devote to Yellowstone Park, then that is a wonderful place to explore!
You are here! Jackson Hole Property Management will have your property ready for your arrival. Settle in to your accommodations and if time permits, check out your surroundings. If you have a smartphone, our Jackson Hole Property Management App is available at Apple Store and a great resource for the Jackson Hole area. The guest book in your property lists things to do: rodeo, shootout, places to eat and more. The Moose-Wilson Road in Grand Teton National Park is a great place to start and see wildlife. The “Shoot-Out” is at 6pm at the famous Town Square and it’s entertainment for all ages. Afterwards, you can enjoy the shops, galleries and restaurants around the Town Square.
Grand Teton National Park is a great place to begin your adventures. If you are feeling ambitious, there are lots of wonderful hiking trails. If you would like to ease into your adventures, Jenny Lake-Hidden Falls-Inspiration Point are a great place to start. You can take the boat across Jenny Lake and marvel at the amazing mountains then hike as far as you would like to the waterfall and Inspiration Point. It’s usually a good idea to start early, because it’s a popular spot. A great place to stop for lunch or dinner is Doran’s Restaurant on your way out of the park. They have some of the best views of the Tetons from their deck!
The beautiful Snake River! There are a couple different ways to enjoy the river; white water rafting, fly fishing and float trips. All of these activities are a lot of fun! If you are looking for a thrill with great guides, then white water rafting is a blast! If you love to fly fish or would love to learn how to fly fish, than the Snake River is world class! If you love animals and the quietness of being on the river, then a float trip is a great way to enjoy the river. For local guide companies, reference our App or the guest book. Enjoy a nice evening in town at one of the great restaurants. While in Jackson, the rodeo is a must and fun for all ages!
Hiking and more adventures in Grand Teton National Park! A great hike for all ages is Phelps Lake. Park at the Lawrence Rockefeller Ranch and start early, because this is a popular hike and parking is limited. If it is hot out, bring your bathing suit and picnic to bask in the sun! Have you seen any music yet? Grand Teton Music Festival has wonderful concerts as well as some of the bars in town. The Silver Dollar Bar at the Wort Hotel is great place to enjoy local music amongst the locals.
Explore Jackson Hole Mountain Resort. Kids enjoy JHMR as much as the adults! There is a kid’s climbing wall and a huge trampoline that kids go wild over. There are also lots of different camps offered. You can enjoy mountain biking or hiking on the trails. Paragliding? What a thrill! Also, riding the tram and getting waffles at the top is a fun experience and great way to see the valley. For drinks or dinner, take the gondola up and enjoy the views. Osteria and Teton Thai are also wonderful restaurants.
Your last fun day in Jackson and there are still so many things to do. Hike up Snow King Mountain in town or take the chairlift? Horseback riding? Rock climbing? Paddle boarding? Golfing? Tennis? Shopping? Galleries? If you would like to take a wildlife tour, our friends at JH Ecotours are a wealth of knowledge.
On the way to the airport, take a walk down the dike for some fresh air and stunning views or stop by that last store on the Town Square. We hope you had a wonderful trip! Jackson Hole is an amazing place that can not fully be explored in one vacation, but hopefully you have done everything that you wanted to. If not, then come back and see us next year!!!
