Summertime is best served with a side of delicious cuisine. At least, that’s the general sentiment within Jackson Hole, Wyoming, the heart of the American West. Possibly more well-known as a winter sports destination, Jackson Hole is every bit as adventure-filled and magnificent in the summer.
Flanked by the impressive Teton and Gros Ventre mountain ranges, Jackson lies in the valley between them, with spectacular views wherever one chooses to gaze. The mountains, Snake River, wildlife, and general abundant nature are what attract visitors. It’s the details, though, such as the delicious cuisine, that keep people coming back to Jackson, year after year.
