Jackson Hole, Wyoming – Summer Itinerary

Jackson Hole, Wyoming – Summer Itinerary

Play during the Day

Heart Six Ranch, Trip Advisor

Horseback Riding – heart six ranch has the BEST views and ride in my opinion. you go way up higher in elevation and can see the entire Teton range from afar. It’s absolutely gorgeous and breathtaking. 

Rent SUP boards/kayaks – rent them from rendezvous river sports and take it into Grand Teton National Park more specifically, String Lake or Jenny Lake would be the best

Rent a boat on Jackson Lake– this would be really fun, especially for a bigger group! you can pack a cooler with a lunch or something and rent a pontoon or a decker boat by the hour. Its SO BEAUTIFUL and you are RIGHT in front of the tetons. 

Hiking – there is an unlimited amount of hiking trails in Jackson/GTNP. My favorites are table mountain, sleeping indian, amphitheater lake, delta lake, lupine meadows. Snow King is a easy but STEEP hike right in town!

Rent 4×4 – with this you can go out in to the gros ventre or shadow mountain which has way less tourists. Scenic Safaris rents them out and they are really fun!! They’ll give you a trail map and show you where to go.

Rafting– whitewater rafting on the snake river is really fun especially if its high tide. I would book private at Dave Hansen Whitewater so you’re not in a boat with 6 other people than your family. They max them out at 14 or 16 people so it can get annoying with so many strangers in it!

Play At Night

In Jackson

[my usual Friday night line up was Bin 22->Local->Cowboy->Rose]

Cowboy Bar– this is A MUST. It’s a Jackson staple and very famous because it has saddles as seats at the bar. It’s a really fun place where the locals go to play pool and hang out and tourists go for pictures. It’s awesome.

The Rose– on Friday night’s it’s DJ night so it’s like a club in there. LOL. It’s fun but they are famous because it’s an amazing specialty cocktail bar. 

Pinky G’s – close out the night with a slice of pizza from here. It’s worth it.

Chamber mixers – google Jackson Hole chamber of commerce or look on their facebook close to your arrival date. every week in the summer, the chamber has a mixer that is FREE drinks and food at fun businesses!

*just a thought, go up Curtis Canyon around sunset. It’s through the national elk refuge. It’s awesome.

Town Square– on the town square every night at 6pm (im pretty sure its still 6?) there are actors who do a “cowboy shootout”. its pretty fun to watch.



In Teton Village:

Teton Thai: Best Thai food EVER!

Spur – It is inside Teton Mountain Lodge and has the best margaritas and a espresso cocktail called insomnia. Get either (or both) and you won’t regret it

Piste Mountain Bistro/Gondola– ride the gondola (it’s free after 5 or you can pay to go up at 4:30) up to happy hour! the views are really awesome even at mid-mountain.

Local, Tripadvisor.com

Local – the BEST happy hour and cocktails and dinner. This is every local’s favorite as well as tourists. This is where I met Harrison Ford so keep your eyes peeled for celeb sightings because there is sure to be one.

Bin 22 – tapas restaurant that is bomb. Go and grab a bottle or two of wine and order everything on the menu. Great dinner place especially girls night and such.

King Sushi – another amazing happy hour option. They can only seat 20 people in this old cabin so make sure you go at 4:30pm when they open and happy hour lasts until 5:30! It’s $3 wells drinks and $5 wines and sushi specials too.

Sweet Cheeks Meats – awesome grab and go breakfast and lunch shop! You will not be disappointed and the owners are the sweetest people so everyone loves supporting them.

Teton Tiger- asian fusion restaurant that has the best indian food. Also really great cocktails.

The Phoenix and The Dragon – newish place that has opened since I’ve moved and wish it had opened before I did. SO awesome and healthier options!

Cuttys– It’s a Philly bar with 30 different philly cheese steak options and the best pizza in town.

Snake River Grill – the best restaurant and the most expensive restaurant in the valley 🙂 but its worth it. Their steak tartar pizza for appetizer is VERY famous and a MUST ORDER.

Nora’s (in wilson, closer to teton village) – best. brunch. ever. 

Peresphone – best. egg sandwich. ever. and honestly just like my fave place ever.

Trio – sister restaurant to Local and equally dank. This is where Will took me on our first date so it’s especially special to me! Always a great menu and service!

Creekside – no better sandwiches in the valley. Turkey club on a croissant was my go-to order for three years and it never let me down. The best place to stop and grab some yummies before heading off to your adventure!

Thai Me Up- really good happy hour specials (order the skid curry, no ragrets) with super dank wings, fries, asian fusionish foods and good beers brewed in house!

Big Hole BBQ – BURNT ENDS MY GOD. Kanye’s favorite spot haha.
