Your Complete Jackson Hole Travel Guide
Jackson Hole is a great destination located in the state of Wyoming. When we planned our ski getaway, we chose to trade the glitz and glam of Aspen and Lake Tahoe for the beauty and vastness of the Jackson Hole region—which not only caught our attention, but most recently, that of celebs and politicians too. Here is a brief travel guide to help you plan your trip:
The nearest airport is the Jackson Hole Airport (JAC), which is about 30 minutes away from the town of Jackson. If you’re coming from Miami, there is a seasonal direct flight on AA. You can also drive to Jackson Hole via the scenic route of Grand Teton National Park and Yellowstone National Park.
Where To Stay
Jackson Hole has a variety of accommodations, ranging from luxury resorts to budget-friendly hotels. Some popular options include the Four Seasons Resort Jackson Hole, the Snake River Lodge & Spa, and Amangani (where we stayed).
Amangani is a luxury resort that offers suites and villas, as well as homes. It is located in a secluded area just outside of the town of Jackson, offering a peaceful retreat with stunning mountain views. Each room features gorgeous views of the Teton Mountains and a cozy fireplace. It offers two dining options: The Grill and The Lounge, serving contemporary American cuisine with a strong focus on local and organic ingredients. The food throughout our stay was absolutely delicious! The staff at Amangani is exceptional and their attention to detail is impeccable. Overall, it’s a luxurious and peaceful retreat for those seeking a top-notch mountain getaway. Highly recommend!
Best Time To Visit
During the summer (June to August) and winter (December to February). In the summer, you can enjoy activities such as hiking, fishing, and rafting. In the winter, you can go skiing and snowboarding. Jackson Hole Mountain Resort is one of the best ski resorts in the US, with over 2500 acres of skiable terrain.
Shopping & Dining
The town of Jackson has plenty of shops and restaurants to explore, with a focus on Western-style cuisine and crafts. Some of my favorites are:
The Blue Lion: Known for its New American cuisine and cozy atmosphere. The grilled salmon and vegetable risotto were outstanding.
Healthy Being Café: Organic, vegetarian and plant-based focused café specializing in cold-pressed juice and healthy vegetarian dishes. It also has a beautifully curated wellness market.
Coelette: Snow-line cuisine sourcing exceptional ingredients from the region and specializing in upscale mountain food.
Glorietta Trattoria: An Italian trattoria where the focus is handmade pasta and wood-fired cooking with expertly crafted cocktails. The menu delivers tasteful but casual dishes using local ingredients while paying homage to Italy.with love always,
