With Grand Teton and Yellowstone National Park so close by, stop to take a day or two in Jackson Hole and enjoy the wild west.

If you like bicycling, trekking or fishing, you can do all of these here. Golfers can try the tees at the Golf Course. The high altitude is supposed to make your ball go further, therefore, it will be satisfying to golf here!

As in other places, there are cabins, camping grounds, hotels and even ranches to stay at. Since they are popular, do book early, because every place will be booked in advance during the busy seasons.
