10 Things to Do with Kids in Jackson Hole this Summer

Like hibernating bears, the Grand Tetons rise to usher in a brand new season, and with it families looking to break out their hiking boots and bathing suits. There’s no shortage of things to do with kids in Jackson Hole, but there is a shortage of summer sun; by the end of June, daylight hours will already be slipping away.

1. Snow King Mountain

One of our favorite places! Whether you’re hitting up the new gondola for a ride to the top, swinging through the Treetop Adventure Course, riding down on the Cowboy Coaster, or racing on the Alpine Slide – Snow King Mountain has activities for kids of all ages.

2. Aerial Tram

Jackson Hole Mountain Resort’s Aerial Tram climes 4,139 vertical feet in just 12 minutes. From the top, you’ll catch panoramic views of Jackson Hole valley and the surrounding mountains. Stop for a family photo, then continue on to the many hiking trails.

3. Jackson Hole Rodeo

Kids of all ages will love catching a glimpse of real-life cowboys and girls every Wednesday and Saturday of the summer season as they take on bucking broncos and bulls. 

4. Visit the National Museum of Wildlife Art

Wildlife encounters aren’t just for the national parks. At the National Museum of Wildlife Art you’ll stand face to face with life-size sculptures on our outdoor trail, take in vistas of the National Elk Refuge, and experience wildlife of the world through art of all mediums in our curated collection and exhibits. Kids can get hands-on in the Children’s Discovery Gallery with life-size diorama, animal costumes, and puppet theater.

5. Take An Old Time Family Photo

Capture your family’s journey to the Old West at Jackson Hole Old Time Photo. Step into the old west complete with a prop gun, or opt for a ski and mountaineering-style shoot. The shop also offers special photo editing to transport you and the family to a new locale.

6. Hike in Rockefeller Preserve

This 1,106-acre wildlife refuge sits within Grand Teton National Park. Originally a ranch, the preserve is the perfect place to take in the Tetons without having to toil on a trail. Explore the many trails that lead to Phelps Lake, a perfect place for a cooling plunge.

7. Play in the Pool

Work a little downtime into what is an otherwise action-packed vacation. Lounge in the sun as your kids splash in the heated outdoor pool. The Snow King Resort pool is also adjacent to Hayden’s Post Kitchen & Bar so you can pop in for snacks for the kids and a beer or cocktail for yourself.

8. Witness a Shootout

The Old West comes to town every evening during the spring and summer. Head to the town square at 6 p.m. to see this classic face-off. Be sure to arrive early–kids will want to stake their claim on a front-row spot.

9. Visit the Jackson Hole Children’s Museum

Sometimes a little inside time is just what a family vacation needs. Take a break from the action at the Jackson Hole Children’s Museum. Your kids will love stepping into the day-to-day of a veterinarian or challenging their coordination in the Climber.

10. Take a Scenic & Wildlife Tour

Snow King Resort is the only resort in the town of Jackson that provides in-house tours exclusively for our guests. Take a half-day and explore points of interest throughout Grand Teton National Park while you search for wildlife! Minimum age for children is 6 years old on a public tour, but no minimum age for families looking to book a private tour.

5 Must-Dos on Your Jackson Hole Honeymoon

After the hustle and bustle of your wedding day the real fun and adventure beginnings for you and your love! While we love Jackson Hole for any occasion we’ve rounded up our 5 favorite “must-dos” after “I do.”

1. Sunrise at Mormon Row

While you may be the type to sleep in during most vacations, we highly recommend getting up and at it early at least one day while in Jackson Hole. Grab a cup of coffee to go and head out to Mormon Row in the Gros Ventre Wilderness of Grand Teton National Park. The drive is just under 30 minutes from Snow King Resort to the famous TA Moulton Barn. Face the barn and the Tetons while the sun rises on your back you’ll see the dark night sky melt behind the mountain range as the front face of the mountains light up in pinks and purples. It is also a great spot for a newlywed photo session.

2. Hike Up Snow King Mountain

The region of Jackson Hole got its name because from the top of a mountain the valley looks like a hole in how it’s surrounded by mountains on nearly all sides. When you hike up to the top of Snow King Mountain it is very easy to see what the early fur trappers of the area meant by that. During the hike, you’ll gain 1,500′ in elevation over 3.8 miles. It’s a very well-trafficked route that locals and visitors alike enjoy all year round. Leashed dogs are also welcomed on this trail. Once you get to the top don’t forget to stay a few minutes and just take in the view! To save your knees a bit of work consider taking the gondola (coming 2022) down for a fee.

3. Side by Side Drive in Gros Ventre Wilderness

Are you a couple with the need for speed? In Teton County, Wyoming side-by-sides are street-legal vehicles. This means that once you reach the rental office and get outfitted you can be on your way! We recommend taking it out to the Gros Ventre Wilderness to see the wilder side of Jackson Hole that most people never do. Because it’s unguided feel free to go out as long or as short as you’d like. Our Adventure Center team can set you up with one of our partners to rent a side-by-side.

4. Dip at Astoria Hot Springs

Just around a 30-minute drive south of town, you’ll find the newly renovated Astoria Hot Springs. The soaking pools are naturally fed and contain 6+ mineral compounds such as magnesium, sulfur, and calcium. Long soaks in these natural springs have been said to help relax muscles and improve the soaker’s mood. Snacks and beverages are available for sale at the Astoria Hot Springs Park. Reservations are highly recommended as passes do sell out!

5. Dancing at Million Dollar Cowboy Bar

Whether you consider yourself a dancing queen or not we absolutely recommend trying to throw your partner round and round western style at the Million Dollar Cowboy Bar. It’s a bucket list item for pretty much anyone who comes to town and once you get there you’ll understand why. Pull up a saddle, order a local brew if you need some liquid courage, and then get to 2-stepping. There’s live music nearly 6 days a week throughout most of the year and on Thursdays, at 7 pm they host free western swing dancing lessons. Also note, you must be 21+ years to enter the Cowboy Bar- no exceptions!

Don’t Rush Winter – Embrace It In Jackson, Wyoming

Skiing is the main attraction in Jackson Hole, for good reason. Riders from all over the world descend upon its rugged terrain for the longest continuous vertical rise of any ski area in the U.S.

But, hey, skiing is not the only reason to enjoy this stunning valley. So, if skiing is not your jam, don’t take Jackson off of your winter vacation list. There are so many other winter sports to enjoy. In fact, Jackson can offer just about anything you can think of including dog sledding, wildlife tours, and snow tubing. If you’d rather stay indoors, how about some shopping therapy or a day at the spa? Jackson truly does offer something for everyone, even in the throes of winter.
