A couple of hours in Jackson was enough to demonstrate why this colorful western town nestled in the mountains is such tourist draw.
Shops, restaurants, art galleries and museums line beautifully adorned sidewalks for several blocks.
Some attractions highlight the history of the old west….
…others highlight the more natural aspects of Wyoming!
The town was bustling with tourists, both young and old, but for the most part, possibly because of the layout of downtown, it didn’t seem extremely crowded. We encountered friendly faces and greetings from many of the locals. It’s obvious that the folks in Jackson understand the value of tourism, and seem to do an excellent job making everyone feel welcome.
Of course, having this attitude and taking this approach has a tendency to be beneficial for the town and its economy. We, in fact, purchased a couple of t-shirts and enjoyed a hearty lunch at a local sub shop, Full Steam Subs. I give both the restaurant and the town of Jackson two thumbs up!
