Welcome to Jackson


Here, hard-core climbers, bikers and skiers (recognizable as sunburned baristas) outnumber cowboys by a wide margin, and you’re just as likely to see a celebrity as a moose wandering the urban trails.

Although Jackson being posh and popular does have its downsides for the traveler (the median house price is $1.6 million), it does mean you’ll find a lively urban buzz, a refreshing variety of foods and no shortage of things to do – both in and out of town.
