Are you planning a trip to Jackson this Labor Day? Here is a detailed itinerary you can follow to get the most out of your holiday weekend.
Morning: Ease into your trip with a relaxed morning and good food—there are a variety of delicious Jackson Hole restaurants and coffee shops. Tour Town Square that is famous for its four antler arches and great shopping ranging from fine jewelry and art galleries to outdoor gear stores and old time photos.
Midday/Afternoon: Shift your focus to the sky for Feathered Floats hosted by the Teton Raptor Center. Meet their resident raptors and learn about birds of prey. From there enjoy an hour-long tranquil float on a guided vintage wooden boat tour down the Snake River. This adventure will keep you entertained and learning from 11 am – 4 pm. If you’d rather have an afternoon of adrenaline prepare to get soaked on a whitewater rafting trip.
Evening: If the sky is clear end your day with Wyoming Stargazing’s free stargazing gathering. Meet at the Center for the Arts' lawn any time between 9:30 to 11:30pm for astronomers to show you planets, stars, nebulae, galaxies and more through their professional telescopes.
Make plan to attend the Jackson Hole Farmers Market on the Town Square from 8am to 12 noon. While you are at the market be sure to meet the farmers and vendors who have all worked hard to bring you fresh locally grown products every Saturday morning throughout the summer. We have a great variety of vendors participating and selling fresh produce, herbs, fresh baked breads, homemade pies, home baked goods, locally raised beef, cheese, honey, flowers and much more.
After visiting the Farmer's Market, head out to Grand Teton National Park for an afternoon hike. September is a great time to go hiking due to slightly cooler temperatures and more active wildlife. The Wort would be happy to set up a guided trip or offer recomendations on our favorite trails in the area.
While in Jackson, you cannot miss the Town Square Shoot-Out. Join the actors of the Playhouse as they continue America's longest running shoot out. This historic shoot out is filled with singing, dancing, laughs, and gun fighting! Event takes place on the Town Square, Monday-Saturday at 6pm.
Labor Day weekend also marks the end of the rodeo season in Jackson Hole. The last show is Saturday, September 4th starting at 8pm. These are real cowboys and girls who are competing for cash money, so their last weekend to compete promises to see some of the best performances of the season.
It is your holiday weekend, relax. Sleep in and go to brunch at Silver Dollar Grill located in The Wort Hotel for the “only in Jackson Hole” breakfast specialties. Located less than one block from the Town Square this is a great opportunity for people watching and absorbing the western downtown area.
Many anglers say September is the best month to fish in the valley. Schedule a fishing guide and spend the rest of the afternoon catching our famous Fine Spotted Cutthroat Trout. For help booking a guide, please contact our concierge- firstname.lastname@example.org.
