It seems like I keep adding more places to my places-to-visit list, much faster than I can check any off! I just keep finding areas that look like the perfect vacation spot, or have a really unique draw. Most of the areas on my list are not cities or big, flashy tourist spots. I prefer an outdoorsy kind of vacation, where I can go hiking, horseback riding, four-wheeling, and maybe even some mountain climbing, skiing, or canoeing. If I can go outdoors and breathe some fresh air, get some exercise, and enjoy the beauty of creation, I am happy! So, after hearing about Jackson, WY and doing a little research myself, I have added it to my list! Of course, being the planner that I am, I have already looked at lodging options, and checked out hotels in Jackson WY.
The reasons for visiting Jackson, Wyoming are too numerous to list, but one thing that quickly had me wanting to plan a vacation there is the sheer beauty and majesty of the area. You're right at the Teton Mountains, and the Grand Teton National park offers so many activities to enjoy! Hundreds of miles of hiking trails, mountain climbing experiences for people of all skill levels, and canoeing and biking are also allowed. Talk about some great photography opportunities!
One thing I would have to do if I visited Jackson, WY is to take in one of the sleigh rides. Talk about an amazing, never-to-forget experience! You can even take a sleigh ride through the elk refuge, and see some gorgeous animals up close and personal. This is something you can't find at just any vacation site, so it definitely moved Jackson, WY up to the top of my list!
One last thing I'll mention about Jackson is the Dogsledding. I have watched some movies, and read some books-but there are several companies in Jackson that allow you to actually become a dogsled driver! You can choose from a variety of trips; whether you're looking for just a one-hour trip, or want the full experience with an overnight dogsledding trip, you can find it all! This would be so awesome, and something to remember forever!
