Of course, the main attraction of the area is the national parks. Grand Teton National Park boasts some of the most iconic mountain vistas in the country, with jagged peaks rising over 13,000 feet above sea level.

And don’t forget about Yellowstone National Park, which is just a short drive away from Jackson Lake Lodge. The world’s first national park is famous for its geysers, hot springs, and wildlife. Visit Old Faithful and watch in awe as it erupts with boiling water and steam. Keep your eyes peeled for bison, elk, and even grizzly bears, which roam freely in the park. You can also take a dip in one of the park’s natural hot springs, like the colorful Grand Prismatic Spring.
After a full day of adventure, return to the comfort of Jackson Lake Lodge. Dine on delicious, locally sourced cuisine at one of the lodge’s restaurants, like the Mural Room or the Blue Heron Lounge.
