Sorry ....a really stupid question

We will be spending some time in Grand Tetons before we come up to Yellowstone. We will be staying in Jackson Hole. Can someone please tell me if Jackson is the same town as Jackson Hole.

Thanks

No such thing as a stupid question...questions are one way in which we learn...

Jackson is the town, Jackson Hole is the valley in which the town is located.

It's a good question as it is very confusing to many.

Jackson Hole is also the ski resort area: Jackson Hole Mountain Resort.

Jackson Hole is the general area...you have to map out to see where it exactly is.

there is the city of Jackson, the Ski Resort area is Teton Village. There are a few other surrounding towns. The whole area will use Jackson Hole.

Jackson Hole refers to the entire valley. Jackson is the city name in Jackson Hole. Many people use the name interchangeably.

Jackson Hole is the whole valley. Jackson is the city's name. You can use either and people will know what you mean.
