Go Sightseeing around Town

Jackson Hole is a charming town inspired by the Old West. Many of the places around town are inspired by the region to immerse travelers into the local scene. One of the must-see attractions during your Jackson Hole summer vacation is the Antler Arch. It's the most famous landmark built entirely of elk antlers—it's the perfect photo opportunity. Take a stroll through downtown to see the public art of local wildlife, boutique shops selling nature-themed souvenirs, and a bevy of award-winning restaurants.

Visit Nearby National Parks

Jackson Hole is conveniently located near two of Wyoming's top national parks: Grand Teton National Park and Yellowstone National Park.

Grand Teton National Park offers exceptional opportunities for hiking, fishing, kayaking, and boating. There are hundreds of miles of trails in Grand Teton National Park. Explore the trails here, to find one suitable to your skill level. Jenny Lake is a great place to fly fish and is surrounded by incredible views. Both cutthroat trout and lake trout can be found in Jenny Lake. We would recommend Jackson Lake for taking out your kayak or motorboat.

Yellowstone National Park is approximately a two-hour drive from Jackson Hole. Plan an entire day around visiting the park because there are plenty of things to see and do that you don't want to miss. Some of the top attractions to see in Yellowstone National Park are the Old Faithful geyser, Tower Fall, and Yellowstone Caldera.
