My recent trip to Jackson Hole, WY was absolutely amazing. Wyoming is known for its national parks, large mountains, open plains, and of course, Jackson Hole. It is such a beautiful place. In today’s blog post I am sharing details on where we stayed, restaurants we enjoyed, and more about the trip!
Where We Stayed
Amangani, a 5-star hotel located in the foothills of the Grand Tetons and about 5 miles from Downtown Jackson. The resort has been on my bucket list for years! It’s safe to say that when we arrived, we definitely were not disappointed.
Almost every corner of the hotel is photo-worthy. The suites are designed with wood and stone details. Adorned with accents like woven cowhide chairs and faux-wolf throws. All of the rooms have terraces or balconies with mountain views! Notable amenities include a heated outdoor pool, a hot tub, a lounge with 2 fireplaces, plus a library, and terrace.
Where We Ate
The top 3 restaurants to visit are listed below with details!
Located off the Jackson Hole historic town square, Hatch is a Mexican restaurant which provided excellent service, delicious food (lots of options), and the best authentic margaritas! We actually went to Hatch twice during our trip!
For good American cuisine, Snake River Grill is the spot. Also located on the Town Square, this fine dining restaurant is rustic and elegant, features 300 different wines and their food was great! I ordered the bolognese (my favorite). I definitely recommend making a reservation ahead of time!
This bar is another great spot to visit! It is located in the center of town, across from Jackson Hole’s Elk Antler Arch. The antler arches are also a great area for photos! The Cowboy Bar is a great spot to catch a live musical performance and grab a drink, while sitting on the signature saddle bar stools.
What to Do
Read below for details on 2 of my top recommendations–both unforgettable experiences.
Drive through the National Elk Refuge
The National Elk Refuge is said to have around 5,000+ elk inhabiting it! We rented a car and enjoyed the incredible scenery, photo ops, and tons of elk! However, you might enjoy biking the five-mile pathway located on the refuge! We saw a ton of people out hiking and jogging the trail.
Snowmobile with Teton Tour Company out to the Granite Hot Springs
We had so much fun Snowmobiling! This was my first time, but definitely not my last! We were able to see the most incredible views of the Teton Mountain range while snowmobiling out to the Granite Hot Springs. It was truly so beautiful. I loved being able to spend the morning in nature. 10/10 recommend!
