Celebrate 4th of July weekend in beautiful Jackson Hole! Here’s a quick list of some recommended activities happening this Independence Day weekend, all laid out in a perfect little itinerary so you can pack your bags and head up for a mountain getaway. P.s. – we even have a few rooms left!
Check in to your room at Mountain Modern and put away your gear. Head out for a stroll around town and grab happy hour or dinner at countless great spots. Depending on what you’re in the mood for, we’d recommend Local for great steaks and burgers, Snake River Brewing for pub fare, and Orsetto for Italian.
Experience an authentic, wild west rodeo right in downtown Jackson (you can walk there from the motel!) at the Jackson Hole Rodeo. The rodeo takes place at 8pm on both Friday & Saturday on 4th of July weekend at the Teton County Fairgrounds.
Night owl? Walk over and grab a drink at the Million Dollar Cowboy Bar, an iconic staple right on town square. Ready for bed? Head back to your room and find a flick to watch (bonus: make some popcorn in our in-room microwave!)
Grab breakfast at Persephone Bakery or Cowboy Coffee. Take a stroll about town or head out for a hike & other activities on Snow King Mountain, including the cowboy coaster, alpine slide, scenic chairlift ride and mini golf.
Peruse the Jackson Hole Farmer’s Market on town square and pick up the perfect fresh snack or locally made souvenir. The market runs from 8am – noon.
Cool off and enjoy the outdoors at Rendezvous Park (“R” park to the locals), where you can float, swim, sunbathe and more. Bring along a portable grill for an afternoon barbeque or pick up a late picnic lunch from E.Leaven.
This year, there will be not 1, not 2, but 3 fireworks shows! Grab a spot at the base of Snow King Mountain in downtown Jackson, at the Jackson Hole Mountain Resort in Teton Village, or at the Stilson Transit Center. There will be ample room to spread out, so pack some snacks and a blanket and find a socially distanced spot on the grass, or enjoy the show from your vehicle.
Check out of your room at Mountain Modern & grab coffee and bagels at Pearl Street Bagels.
Take a drive north of town past the National Elk Refuge up to Moran, to see the iconic Moran Barn and view the bison. Be sure to bring your camera as the view of the Teton range are pretty majestic!
