The cabins are a great place to view wildlife and natural wonders of all kinds. Bird watching, stargazing, hiking and much more are all accessible from your front porch. However, should you seek out experiences of slightly more epic proportions you are in the perfect place for that too! Here are links to some of our favorite purveyors of adventure
Whether you're new to the saddle or an old hand, this is some of the prettiest horse country out there! Here are a few of the trail riding operations available locally, but don't forget that if you'd like to bring your own trusty steed, there's lodging for them as well.

JACKSON HOLE DAYTRIPS
If you're up for a beautiful drive, I'd highly recommend a day trip up to Yellowstone National Park. The diversity of its geological and animal ecosystem is absolutely stunning. Just be sure to maintain a respectful distance from the animals, and be extra cautious of distracted drivers. I've attached a map of some of my all time favorite places to see and eat along the way.
At just 1 hour away from Jackson, we are in a perfect place to enjoy all that it offers without having to deal with the Jackson crowds or prices. With great shopping and nightlife, there's always lots to do, but Jackson also hosts tons of community events, free concerts, rodeos and shootouts all summer long. Here are just some suggestions for fun things to do on your day out in the city.
- For a great list of local events got to Jackson Hole Chamber
- If you're craving a little culture, Jackson Playhouse is always a fantastic show!
