Mountain town Jackson Hole, Wyoming is a must-add to your domestic-destination bucket list. From snow-capped peaks to roaming elk, travel writer @katherineparkermagyar has shared her 1, 2, 3 destination guide for the town below.
Amangani (@amangani): If you’re looking for sophistication, romance, and spectacular views of the Tetons, then look no further than the luxurious Amangani, Jackson Hole. Located on the edge of East Gros Ventre Butte, guests can drink in the decadent beauty of their surroundings by soaking in a 115-foot infinity pool—heated to 85° year-round, of course.
Snake River Grill (@snakerivergrill): Located just off the town square, the Snake River Grill is a must-visit when visiting Jackson Hole. The chic establishment is a veritable institution in downtown Jackson, with a sophisticated ambiance and even more sophisticated food and wine menu.
King Sushi (@kingsushijh): King Sushi manages to achieve near-impossible status as a favorite haunt of tourists and locals alike. The delectable sushi and sashimi (not to mention the Imperial Shrimp) are sure to satisfy even the most discerning foodie visiting from New York, while the cozy yet chic ambiance keeps diners coming back night after night.
Jackson Hole Mountain Resort (@jacksonhole): The first thing to do is hit the slopes, of course! And while the mountain has recently expanded its beginner terrain, expert skiers (and daredevils) keep returning to the hill for the more challenging downhill it offers. Brave Corbet’s Couloir, if you so dare, or ski off-piste along the Hobacks.
National Elk Refuge (@_nationalelkrefuge): Give your legs a break for the day and head out to the National Elk Refuge for a Sleigh Ride through the beautiful reserve. The elk shed their antlers every spring, resulting in the gorgeous arches you’ll find in downtown Jackson—volunteers collect fresh antlers each year to build the iconic structures anew.
Granite Hot Springs: Discover why the off-season is the best season in Grand Teton National Park with a snowmobile adventure to Granite Hot Springs. Pack a bathing suit (and charge your iPhone) before heading out to enjoy the spectacular vistas and restorative relaxation of Wyoming’s thermal waters, wide-open spaces, and endless supply of fresh powder.
