The Best Things to Do During Your Jackson Hole Holiday Vacation
There’s no shortage of things to do for fun (and for relaxation) on-site at Jackson Hole’s luxury vacation rentals, as well as the surrounding areas. You’ll want to enjoy the slopes and the snow, but don’t miss out on the fun seasonal activities and the delicious dining options available in the area.
Hit the Slopes
You probably came for this very reason, so: go skiing. There are mountain guides that will help you test your limits, whether you’re a total newbie or a seasoned expert. Take advantage of classes and other related amenities offered by hosts, parks, and local authorities all throughout the Jackson area if your trip is more sport focused.
Romantic Sleigh Rides
Snuggle on a horse-drawn sleigh ride during the evening before grabbing some dinner. This is a unique outdoor activity that can be enjoyed by couples and by families, so you don’t want to miss out. Ask your TCCG concierge if you need more information about this or any other activities
Soak at the Springs
Horses aren’t your thing? There are also full-day tours on dog-drawn sleighs. These can take you to Granite Hot Springs, so you can relax your muscles if you’ve already been skiing or just want a natural spa-style break from all the cold.
Lunch and Learn
Grab a delicious lunch at Palate after soaking in everything The National Museum of Wildlife Arts has to offer. The food is always delicious, but the best time to stop by is lunch — to enjoy the breathtaking views that are skillfully complemented by the menu. Food is locally sourced but prepared artfully and unexpectedly. Make sure to try the Idaho Trout Fish & Chips.
Explore the Parks
If you want a stress-free way to enjoy the local landscape, take your pick and go on a tour of either Yellowstone National Park, the National Elk Refuge, or the Grand Teton National Park. Or visit them all on different days! They all offer different ways to enjoy Jackson Hole’s natural splendor and certainly won’t disappoint. Some landmarks can be reached by snowmobile with a guide, in case you want a more adventurous experience.
Views From Above
If you want to enjoy aerial views of the landscape, remember you can ride the Aerial Tram and grab waffles at Corbet’s Cabin, or ride the Bridger Gondola and enjoy some Roasted Colorado Lamb for dinner at Piste.
Tubing with the Kids
If you’re traveling with adventurous children, make sure to take them to the snow tubing parks at either the Grand Targhee or the Snow King resorts. This is a great option if your kids don’t enjoy skiing or if the family just wants a break from it while staying active. There are daily and hourly passes.
Go shopping while you explore the historic Town Square. Make sure to visit the unique local boutiques and have your pick at western-themed apparel, gifts, and souvenirs to take back home. Also, check the dates and stop by the Holiday Art Bazaar and remember that Santa visits regularly from 5 pm to 7 pm during December.
Sip a Drink in a Saloon
Get drinks at the Million Dollar Cowboy Bar for a very special and very western-style experience. Even the chairs look like saddles there, and the cowboy culture is surely alive and well here every day.
If that’s not enough, there are also the famous spas! The Four Seasons spa experience includes a 25-minute long body soak in Himalayan salts you can enjoy while sipping champagne, and there’s the natural detox option at Hotel Terra’s spa if you want an even deeper relaxation experience.
Between amazing luxury vacation rentals and all sorts of activities to keep adults and youngsters busy, it’s impossible not to enjoy your holiday vacation and we’re sure you’ll be coming back for more.
