Morning In Jackson Hole

Rise and shine! Waking up early in the crisp Wyoming air in your beautiful Rendezvous Mountain Rental lodging is the perfect way to start a day during your vacation in Jackson Hole. Fuel your energy with a delicious breakfast and a hot cup of coffee at one of the town’s favorite cafes: Persephone Bakery. Here you can savor a hearty Croque madame or opt for a delectable truffled egg skillet. Either way, it’s a can’t miss during your Jackson Hole vacation. Located in both the town of Jackson and a new location in Wilson, it is the perfect place to plan your day.


After breakfast, consider taking one of the free “Xplor!e powered” activities offered as part of an RMR rental and book a whitewater trip with Dave Hansen Whitewater. With the epic snow accumulations from 2019, the whitewater is amazing this summer!


Looking to get on the water a different way? Rent a standup paddleboard from Rendezvous River Sports (another free perk of your stay) and head out to one of the beautiful lakes in the area, such as Phelps Lake, Jenny Lake or String Lake just to name a few.


Afternoon In Jackson Hole

After your morning raft trip or hike, hit the pavement with an afternoon bike ride along the Jackson Hole Pathway that leads to Grand Teton National Park. Pick up a bike from Backcountry Safaris—free with your rental—in town and follow the path up toward the Grand Teton National Park and have a late afternoon lunch at Dornan’s. With the best views in the valley, Dornan’s is the place to view the Tetons after a hard day’s work. Keep your eyes out for moose and other wildlife along the trail.


Nighttime In Jackson Hole

There are countless things to do in Jackson Hole once the sun goes down, from grabbing a drink at the famed Million Dollar Cowboy Bar, to catching a live music act, to grabbing a late-night bite at Bin 22. Any of these options are a great way to close out another amazing day of your Jackson Hole vacation.
