The town of Jackson is the southern anchor of Jackson Hole, south of Grand Teton National Park and just east of the Idaho border. It sits in a valley surrounded by the Hoback Range and Snow King Mountain to the south, the Gros Ventre Mountains to the east and the spectacular peaks of the Teton Range to the north and west. The Snake River runs to the west between Jackson and Teton Village. The town center is flat, making walking an excellent option, and areas on the edges of town creep up the mountainsides and buttes.   Click here to see the full Jackson Hole Resort Area travel guide on Travel42 »

Jackson Hole and the Tetons were created by geological forces over the course of 10 million years.
