1. Jackson Hole Shopping

With so many cool shops to explore, you might forget to go back to the hotel. Walk Downtown Jackson’s famous boardwalks as you seek out the perfect souvenir.

Our four Town Square Inns properties are close to dozens of culinary options to suit your preferences and dietary needs.  From family-friendly to high-end fine dining, steakhouses, and vegetarian haunts, visitors have a host of dining options all within walking distance of our hotel properties. Not sure where to start? We suggest hitting Picnic for breakfast, grabbing pizza at Pinky G’s Pizzeria, then enjoy live music and dinner at Million Dollar Cowboy Bar. Feel like treating yourself? Moo’s Gourmet Ice Cream has the best ice cream in town! Jackson Hole also has some of the best outdoor dining spots, making it easy to enjoy the fresh Wyoming air and a good meal.
