Thanksgiving at The Wort Hotel

Thanksgiving is a quiet time in Jackson Hole because the winter season is only getting started. This peaceful and tranquil time in our otherwise bustling resort town is one of the many things that makes celebrating Thanksgiving in Jackson Hole so wonderful. We've combed the local events calendars and come up with this suggested itinerary for a Thanksgiving getaway to Jackson Hole.
