It’s Spring in Jackson Hole! While the skiing is winding down and the valley is greening up, the off-season is a great time to experience Jackson and Grand Teton National Park. Here is just one example of an itinerary for those who want to experience the great outdoors with great food and beverages.
Morning- During your first day in Jackson, head on into town for breakfast at one of our cozy and delicious options around the square where you can sit down and enjoy the ambiance, or take something to go and explore town's unique shopping scene. Local brands surround the four antler arches, making it easy for you to navigate yourself around the square and to hit up some local favorite spots to pick up souvenirs, jewelry, apparel, art, and more. Once you've filled your bellies and taken in town's culture, gear on up and get ready to take on a scenic bike ride with A+ plus of the Tetons.
Afternoon- Did you know that there are many different ways you can bike around Jackson? With bike shops sprawled around town, and at times offered at your hotel, too, you have a great variety to choose from. Mountain biking for the adventurous, fat tire biking for those who want more of a challenge, cycling for those who want to work a sweat with a view, electric bikes for those who don't want to work up a sweat (trust us, we won't judge you--they are amazing!), and of course just some classic road and pathway bikes for those who want to be in the moment and maybe even stop a few times to get some of those iconic Grand Teton shots. Our pathways around town, in Wilson, and in Grand Teton National Park are some of the most well-kept ones out there and we can't wait for you to check them out. If you had a short bike ride or are ready for more of the great outdoors, we suggest making your way to one of the many fishing guides and anglers to teach you the peace and mind meditation activity that is fly fishing. Learning how to cast along the Snake River, even if you don't catch anything, is a great way to get the views AND relaxation.
Ready for some grub and a cold beer after working up a sweat? Jackson has quite the impressive list of brewpubs around town that can help replenish you have a morning of biking. Depending on what ambiance, food, and style of beer you are looking for, our brewpubs will not disappoint! Heck, if you love beer so much you may want to hop around town and visit all of them! Here during Old West Days on Saturday, May 25th? Attend Brewfest! After a late lunch, you can either make your way to your hotel to take a nap (again, we won't judge you) or head over to the National Museum of Wildlife Art to calm your food + beer coma. With great exhibits coming in and out each season, you are going to love learning about the history and wildlife inhabitants of Jackson Hole.
Evening- Dinner time! What sounds good? EVERYTHING since you must be exhausted from your bike ride at high altitude and exploring the town of Jackson. When you think of Jackson Hole, you think of the old west, the mountains, cowboys, and national parks, but what most do not expect to see when they arrive is the exquisite dining scene. With a local fine dining restaurant group, local fast-casual spots, and local unforgettable dine-in options, you will want to try, like we said, EVERYTHING. To wrap up a fun-filled day, head over to the iconic Million Dollar Cowboy Bar, sit on a saddle, dance your heart out, and head back to the hotel for a good night's sleep--sweet dreams.
