Take in the Open Spaces
Jackson Hole is known for its wide open spaces. From the national forests to national parks there is something for everyone to enjoy in the great outdoors. While Jackson Hole has made a name for itself as a winter destination with world-class skiing, there’s much more to this mountain town than its snowy slopes. Whether you need a break from the champagne powder or just aren’t that into downhill skiing, here are seven other awesome things to do on your winter vacation in Jackson Hole. A vacation to Jackson Hole doesn’t always have to be about skiing.
A Night Out on the Town
The best nights out involve mixing it up and hopping from hot spot to hot spot. Start your evening with wine at Bin22. Before the drinks go to your head, hit the Snake River Grill for dinner. If you are staying in Teton Village and don’t want to come to town, head to Old Yellowstone Garage for an après-ski cocktail or a world-class Italian dinner. With dinner taken care of, it’s time to explore the nightlife of downtown Jackson Hole as well as Teton Village. Start out at the Silver Dollar Bar for some bluegrass. When it’s time to kick it up a notch, check out the famous Million Dollar Cowboy Bar for live music and dancing.
Make it a Spa Day
Treating yourself is good for the soul. Massages, facials, and other spa treatments can all be found at one of Jackson Hole’s luxury spas. They boast outdoor hot pools and full service spa amenities. This rejuvenating experience will help you relax after a day of outdoor adventure.
