Spend Quality Time Strolling Through Jackson Town Square

For many travelers, Memorial Day in Jackson Hole is a chance to get into nature and away from the crowds to savor every second in nature. However, if you’re looking for in-town fun, there’s plenty to be found right in the heart of Town Square! This is a central hub for shops, galleries, and eateries in town where you can mix and mingle with locals and visitors alike. The charming cafes might beckon you over for a bite or coffee while the boutique shops are ideal when you’re on the hunt for apparel, home goods, jewelry, or souvenirs. Throughout the warm weather months, Town Square plays host to live musical performances as well as events and gatherings of all kinds. When you drop by, don’t miss out on the opportunity to get your picture taken in front of one of the four elk antler arches that adorn this destination. They’re kept well maintained by an endless seasonal supply of antlers left behind by the herd over at the National Elk Refuge nearby.

Enjoy a Float Trip Down the Snake River

By Memorial Day, temperatures are finally warm enough for visitors to enjoy a scenic float trip down the Snake River while they’re in town. This is a great way to get on the water, enjoy wildlife-watching, and spend quality time with family and friends. There are a variety of local outfitters that offer guided float trips so you can enjoy peace of mind and all the gear you’ll need along the way. Drifting along the water and soaking up the sights of the Tetons in the distance is truly a one-of-a-kind experience from start to finish.
