Spring is one of the best seasons for visiting Jackson Hole, WY. Before the summer travel rush begins, April and May offer many unique seasonal highlights. Here are our top three favorite reasons for visiting in the spring:
1. Wildflowers & Wildlife
Spring is a peak season for spotting wildlife, especially the amazing sight of young animals just getting their bearings in the world. The roads to Grand Teton National Park and Yellowstone National park are accessible beginning in mid-April and May. You may also enjoy a drive or bicycle ride from downtown Jackson toward Grand Teton National Park on the paved multi-use pathway which provides miles of fantastic mountain views and wildlife sighting opportunities and connects with the Jenny Lake Scenic Loop. The wildflowers are also in bloom from May through September and the vibrant hues blanketing the valley are breathtaking in spring.
2. Celebrate Spring Events
There’s so much to do during spring in Jackson Hole. Music lovers will enjoy Rendezvous Festival, from March 15th - 17th, offering free live concerts across two stages. On May 18th & 19th visitors can enjoy ElkFest, a weekend of fun activities including the famous annual elk antler collection and subsequent auction. Then, over Memorial Day weekend, Jackson Hole celebrates Old West Days, a multi-day festival honoring western traditions and culture. Old West Days features crafts, activities, food, music, and more.
3. Smaller Crowds & Bigger Savings
