Finally got the wife on board with going to Wyoming for vacation this Summer. I'd love to hear from people that have been there on what to do, where to stay, etc.

there a lots of Do and Donts on Youtube that are worth sorting through as they have video of areas to visit etc so you can see if any of what they person says interests (or not) you.

Best skiing in the country, but you’re going in the summer... Sorry no help for summer activities.

We stayed at the 4 seasons in Teton, I would not stay in Jackson myself. From Teton Village, you can go many different places and you are away from the "tourists".

Eat at the Local if you don't do anything else. We did some tours, golf is decent, plenty to do or not do.

When in summer ? June is still spring for us and could be very snowy yet.
You can find lodging from high end to affordable. Staying close to the square is good for walking around town, etc. Farther out is more quite and likely more scenic.
Elk weekend in May will be crowded but pretty interesting, antler auction and other things on the square.
Fishing could be iffy with very high water too early in summer.
Do a float trip.
Melvin Brewery in Alpine is good but make sure you're careful about drinking high octane beer at altitude.
Visit the distillery and breweries near and in Jackson.

By the way it is just "Jackson", Jackson Hole is the area the town is in.

We will be there Memorial weekend. We're planning float on Snake, fly fishing (looks like we may need to rethink that one )....and I have no doubt the boys will want to visit the breweries.

I'm a bit bummed about this fishing info....guess that just means we will need to go AGAIN later in the summer!

There are a ton of things to do in and around the Jackson Hole area. It really depends on what your interests are. You can spend a half a day, maybe more, on the square in town going into all the shops if that what you like, or you can spend all your time out of town exploring the region.

The Rustic Inn - https://rusticinnatjh.com/ is a really nice place to stay, especially if you can get a cabin on the west side of the property along the river.
You can go high end on down in terms of places to stay but even the low end places in Jackson during the summer are not going to be cheap.

During the time you are going, everything and everywhere is going to really busy from floating the Snake to going up into the park. You just have to know that going in.

As far as dining, the sky it is the limit around the area depending on the type of food you like. I would recommend going to the Calico Restaurant and Bar on the road going into Teton Village. It is casual and I recommend sitting in the bar and having a Jalapeno Margarita and some good Italian food.
Of course, you have to go into the Cowboy Bar for a cold beer saddled up at the bar. The Wort Hotel and Silver Dollar Bar is another place to stop in for a drink and something to eat.

We go several times a year but usually time it when the tourists are not there in droves. Early spring before school is out and then in the fall after school starts again are my favorite times to be up there.

Fishing on the snake might be tough at the end of May but it should be on good on some other rivers not far away. PM if you need a guide.

We normally stay in Teton Village as well and always enjoy it. Something different to do would be the hot air balloon rides or the para-gliding. My wife did the para-gliding and said it was amazing. Even let her "drive" which is always a bad idea...

Whom ever you're going with, have this tattooed on their forehead "RESERVATIONS".
We went in the fall during Covid and the place was crazy crowded. The 1/2 day 4 wheeler ride was a let down. If I had known we'd be sharing dusty rock roads with every elk hunter in Wyoming, we woulda done something else. Yellowstone was a hoot but it's a pretty good drive. The views are............well I'm too ignorant to come up with a word that does justice to the views.

When we went we stayed at the Four Seasons at the base of the Tetons. Great place.

We also went to Yellowstone while there and white water rafted the Snake.

Don’t go on the 4th of July holiday as everything is too crowded.

The breakfast burrito at D.O.G. is awesome.

I was there about a year ago. I would whitewater raft and take a fishing trip on the Snake. There is great scenery everywhere. There is also great hiking, take the tram to the top of the resort too. I had a few decent meals but nothing life changing. Have fun.

We stayed in Teton Village. Hiked all around the park and did two float trips. It was my favorite vacation
