24 Hours in Jackson Hole Wyoming

What does the perfect day in Jackson Hole Wyoming look like? We’ve racked our brains and are giving you some of our local favorites in order for you to enjoy your precious time in the area. Make the most of your 24 hours even if you’re simply passing through to wherever you may be heading next!


What better way to start off your day in Jackson Hole Wyoming than a splash of cold water to the face while whitewater rafting with Dave Hansen Whitewater and Scenic Trips? We also offer scenic float trips that are a perfect morning excursion, if you’re not interested in whitewater rafting. Wildlife is more likely to be seen on our earliest float, so this would be the perfect way to begin your day!


After your whitewater rafting or scenic float trip, head over to Creekside Market and Deli for the best sandwich you’ve ever had in your life (better with the Tetons in the background). Don’t forget the infamous sloshie with your sandwich! Adults only.

Next, take that sandwich with you to String Lake, where you can spend time people watching, paddle boarding, or canoeing if you are able to rent the equipment. After String Lake, take the beautiful and scenic Moose-Wilson road and hike down to Phelps Lake. At Phelps Lake, you can jump off the Jumping Rock and get that perfect Instagram shot of Jackson Hole Wyoming for all your friends back home.


Head on over to Teton Village, where you can ride up the Bridger-Teton Gondola for FREE after 5pm. At the top of the Gondola, you’ll have to check out the awesome drinks and apps they offer at the Desk @ Piste. Cocktails include the must-have “Huckleberry How-Pow” and the “Gondi Ride Down.” The “Gondi Ride Down” is the bartender’s choice of beverage served to-go for the gondola ride down. Don’t forget to try the flatbread or sliders!

After your time in Teton Village, end your day at Calico Bar and Restaurant on Moose-Wilson Road. Calico is one of the oldest restaurants in Jackson Hole Wyoming. This American-Italian restaurant is loved by locals and visitors, and the views both inside and outside are sure to please.

No matter what you choose to do with your time in Jackson Hole Wyoming, we hope that you enjoy it and that you come back again to see us in the future! Raft on!
