Welcome to our city guide for a Wild West Wonderland, Jackson Hole, Wyoming. Jackson Hole is the perfect destination for any season and any type of traveler! Moxi LOVES Jackson and is partial to enjoying it in the summer months, specifically June, July and August. We want to share with you a few of our favorite things that this one-of-a-kind city has to offer.
Jackson Hole has some of the best properties. We wanted to highlight a few in each area to give you options based on where you are looking to stay!
This hotel is brand new, innovative, and right in the action of downtown Jackson Hole. This boutique hotel redefines the art of western hospitality with one-of-a-kind accommodations and stylish lodging!
This beautiful property is located in Teton Village. It is about a 20-minute drive to downtown Jackson but you have access to the Gondola, Horseback Riding, multiple restaurants, and the park Entrance right at your fingertips. We recommend this property as our top pick because you really have a lot of hiking, biking, and adventure seeking activities right at your fingertips.
This one-of-a-kind hotel is a modern oasis set high on a mountain overlooking the Tetons. Amangani is perfect for a serene, quiet escape. Its location allows for amazing views but it also means that you have to drive to most activities. However, downtown Jackson Hole is less than 15 minutes away and so is Teton Village! This is the perfect place to stay if you are looking for a relaxing getaway.
For anyone seeking home style accommodations, VRBO has options. Just make sure to check out the booking policy. Many vacation rentals have a 1-month minimum stay. If you are willing to drive just a little bit father, there are some AMAZING home options just over the pass in Victor Idaho. Besides, driving over the pass each day isn’t a bad thing when you are literally driving through Teton National Park.
