Why Jackson Hole, Wyoming, Should Be at the Top of Your Travel List
There's much more to the town than skiing
Long a destination for some of the world’s most daring skiers, Jackson Hole is a charming, welcoming town with much more to offer than some of the best snow on Earth. Although summer is a popular tourist time—it’s buoyed by its proximity to Yellowstone National Park—the winter months are arguably the most appealing time of the year to visit, even if your time is not spent on the slopes. The town, incorporated over a century ago, has both preserved and protected its legacy and authenticity. From sleigh rides through the National Elk Refuge and wildlife to exploring the local shops around the picturesque Town Square (surrounded by arches constructed entirely of elk antlers), an escape to Jackson should occupy the preeminent place on your travel wish list. Here's our guide to the best places to stay, eat, drink, shop, and see.
Where To Shop
Mountain Dandy Showroom The Showroom (an extension of their nearby Gaslight Alley location, which also houses their sister store MADE) opened in June in a former law office. All of the rooms in the space—which connect through the center alcove—are conscientiously constructed, uniquely displaying beautiful home furnishings with a focus on American-made goods. madejacksonhole.com
