Jackson is a quaint little town in Wyoming’s Jackson Hole valley. Its central square has an impressive elk antler archway on each corner and all the surrounding shops and restaurants have a nice boardwalk out front.

We enjoyed paying a visit to the Million Dollar Cowboy Bar to try some local brews and found a great place to grab some Mexican food. Although very touristy Jackson is a nice place to hang out and an excellent base for exploring Grand Teton National Park, the National Elk Refuge and the National Museum of Wildlife Art, all of which are just a short drive from town.

Jackson was a real highlight on our trip. As we were approaching peak season it was more expensive to stay here than some other places but it was worth paying the extra and choosing to stay in a guesthouse a short walk from the center to maximize the experience.
