The town of Jackson offers countless opportunities for shopping, dining, and nightlife. The heart of the town of Jackson is the Town Square with its notable antler arch entrance. Every summer, the Town Square is home to the world’s longest running shoot-out.

The shops scattered along the western boardwalk range from chic fashion boutiques to souvenir stores and commercial chains. The town of Jackson also offers countless fine art galleries. In fact, Jackson is the fifth nationally recognized arts center in the nation.

If you are looking for a decent place to stay but not willing to pay hundreds? This is great place and I loved staying here. Ideal for group of friends or young family as it offers great common space in the basement where you can enjoy time together. It offers basic but very nice bedrooms with private bathroom. It has it own spirit and the service was very friendly with personal touch. During the summer you can relax in the frontyard and enjoy the beautiful view over the mountains.
