It’s the age-old question that countless Jackson Hole natives get from friends and family planning a trip to the area: How many days do you need in Jackson Hole? At Rustic Inn, you’ll get the Jackson Hole boutique hotel experience with stand-alone cabins, lavish suites, a luxe spa, and on-site dining, but you’ll also get up close and personal with nature through the variety of outdoor activities we offer.
You can probably see what we’re getting at here—the best way to tackle the question of how many days to plan for your Jackson Hole getaway is to take a number of different factors into consideration and make the decision from there. Here’s what to think about when planning your trip to Wyoming.
What’s Your Vacation Personality?
This is an important question to ask yourself whenever you plan a vacation. Some people go on vacation to rest and rejuvenate; they want their days slow, unscheduled, and relaxing. Then there are the adventurers—they plan activities for each day and jam-pack as much into their vacation as possible. Finally, there are those who like the city life experience—fine dining, shopping, and art galleries.
The thing we love most about vacationing in Jackson Hole is that it offers all of these experiences, so you don’t have to choose one over the others. That said, if you want to partake in a little bit of everything, you’ll want to opt for a longer trip. Just need a little R&R? Then a long weekend may be perfect.
What Do You Want to See in Jackson Hole?
Related to the previous question, you’ll also want to consider your Jackson Hole itinerary. If you want to get the full outdoor adventure experience, plan at least a week so you can spend sufficient time in both Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Park. If your primary reason for traveling to Jackson Hole is so you can hit the slopes, you can likely make do with a shorter trip. Naturally, the more you want to see and do, the longer you should plan on staying in Jackson Hole.
Where Are You Staying in Jackson Hole?
