Jackson and its Town Square have been the social and cultural heart of the valley for more than a century.
It no longer takes a day and a wagon to get to town, but once here the soda fountain on the Town Square — and the family running it — is the same as 100 years ago. The log cabin early settler Ben Coe used as his blacksmith shop is now a sushi restaurant. The wooden sidewalks that formerly kept people from stepping in horse manure now link fine art galleries, James Beard-recognized restaurants, public art, boutiques, parks, and gear shops. Jackson has changed since it was incorporated in 1914, but exploring it remains as much of an adventure as ever.
After a big day in the mountains, the town of Jackson is the perfect spot to live it up, relax, or indulge.
The town of Jackson has done the seemingly impossible: It’s managed to upgrade and modernize with chic hotels and fancy restaurants without losing its Western soul. You’ll notice it as you walk through antler arches and past line-dancing cowboys on your way to a spa treatment, a sushi dinner, or a theater production. After a day of adventures, there’s nothing better than soaking in Jackson’s authentic mountain town vibes.
