Jackson Hole restaurants offer something guaranteed to delight just about any palate imaginable. Teton Springs Lodge & Spa is located just 22 miles and a short scenic drive over Teton Pass from the iconic western town of Jackson. Guests of Teton Springs will often take the opportunity to explore the myriad of fine dining establishments offered in Jackson. Besides the eateries, there’s plenty to see and do in Wyoming’s most famous town. One can pursue their passion for art as Jackson is also home to the world reckoned National Wildlife Museum of Western Art. Located directly from the National Elk Preserve, this museum stop should be on all itineraries.
The shopping is also a huge draw for visitors and local residents alike while sampling the goods through the city center and square in Jackson Hole. There’s an incredible selection of retail in this town, and it’s not all western wear and big silver belt buckles. Women in particular will need to carve out some serious time to explore the jewelry options which run the gamut from solid gold Teton pendants to authentic turquoise baubles and everything in-between. There’s also a surprising number of quality “gently used” shops where one can find designer cowboy boots or a wildlife oil painting from a local artist.
While Jackson Hole’s restaurant offerings are hard to resist, back on the Idaho side foodies will also discover a staggering number of choices. Many of the Teton valley cafes, restaurants and brewpubs use fresh, locally grown ingredients. One worth mentioning is the Headwaters Grille at Teton Springs Resort. This local favorite offers outstanding fresh fare in a casual and spectacular environment. During the glorious summer guests enjoy a meal on the patio overlooking the Headwaters Golf Course. It’s also the best spot to watch a glorious western sunset. Or, head indoors for a scrumptious meal in the intimate dining room complete with roaring fire for those cooler Idaho days. And don’t miss a trip to Teton Springs Lodge’s Sage Cafe for a hearty breakfast or filling lunch.
