The problem with this hole (named Jackson Hole by Davey Jackson, when he arrived here in the early 1800s), is deciding how many adventures you can fit into a trip. Think of Jackson Hole as the base camp, from which you can ski, hike and bike on mountainsides and in valleys, challenge golf-medal fishing streams, and easily visit both Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks.

Jackson Hole is a long valley in northwest Wyoming, which bumps right up against the steep-sided Teton Mountain Range. It's not uncommon to see cars parked on the side on the road watching moose or elk foraging in fields. A park entered through arches made from elk antlers anchors the town of Jackson. Jackson Hole Mountain Resort's slopes are nearby and Grand Targhee is just over a spectacular pass. Yellowstone is an hour away.
