Jackson Hole, Wyoming

Situated in a lush valley, Jackson Hole, Wyoming, is made truly breathtaking thanks to its backdrop of dramatic peaks. Grand Teton National Park and Jackson Hole overlap, so it’s a great place to head if you want to experience some truly magnificent natural sights. Think snowcapped mountains, shimmering lakes, thick forests, alpine meadows, and even the occasional roaming herd of bison and antelope.
