Jackson is a great town to unwind after a day of playing in the mountains surrounding Jackson Hole.  It is a good place to catch a bus to a River Rafting trip or renting a bike and heading into the nearby hills or along the any newly developed trails and pathways.  There are many shopping opportunities throughout this small town.  From art galleries to souvenir shops to mountaineering supply stores to Coldwater Creek, Chico's and Eddie Bauer.  There is a little bit of everything.  You can lay in the open area in the town square and take in the fresh air. 

Don't miss the local brewery, Snake River Brewery, as well as the restaurants ranging from Billy's Giant Hamburgers (awesome burgers and fries) to the pricier Snake River Grill.  The kids will love Mountain High Pizza Pie.  For an evening out with the locals...The Rancher Bar is a great place to stop by for a drink, some music and some views of the town square from the upper patio or take a short drive to Wilson to experience the great food and homey atmosphere of Nora's Fish Creek Inn.  Jackson Hole has local events going on throughout the summer, so check the calendar.  There's a rodeo every Wednesday night, chuckwagon dinners, art festivals, open markets and more.  Even in the summer, you can take a ride up the modern, new ski tram at Jackson Hole Ski Area in Teton Village or a lift at Snow King in Jackson for a small fee and soak in the views of the towns below.  If there over fourth of July, you'll be treated to a firework show over the mountains and don't miss the FREE  "Music in the Hole" concert complete with the 1812 Overture and canons! 

Jackson Hole is a great base camp for exploring the Grand Teton National Park, Yellowstone National Park and the National Forests that surround the area.
