Jackson Hole Playhouse#4 in Best Things To Do in Jackson Hole
Just because the sun's gone down and the ski lifts have closed doesn't mean the fun has to stop. In the evenings, valley visitors head to the Jackson Hole Playhouse. This small dinner theater in downtown Jackson is housed in the oldest building in town, and is famous for its fun atmosphere and quality performances. The productions are so good, some past audience members have compared them to those on Broadway, despite the venue's diminutive size.
Guests are welcome to skip the dining portion of the evening and come only for the show, but many recent visitors urged future travelers to reconsider – cast members of the night's show not only serve the food, but serenade diners. Most also gave high marks for the food served, as well as the friendly hospitality.
The Jackson Hole Playhouse conducts performances Monday through Saturday. Dinner reservations are taken for 5 p.m. and 6:30 p.m. Showtime is at 8 p.m. after a short pre-show at 7:30 p.m. Ticket prices vary depending on which experience you choose. Show tickets cost $40 for adults, $35 for kids ages 13 to 17 and $25 for children ages 5 to 12. If you want dinner, too, be prepared to pay $75 per person for the experience.

#1 Jackson Hole Mountain Resort
Occupying a large chunk of Teton Village in the northwest corner of the valley, the Jackson Hole Mountain Resort is a vacation destination unto itself. The primary resort area in the valley, this property boasts several hotels and timeshares and an adventure park, not to mention a variety of dining options on top and below the mountain. However, the main reason people visit the resort is to take advantage of the skiing; located at the base of Rendezvous Mountain, the resort offers prime access to 2,500 acres of ski runs and 4,139 feet of vertical drop. And with more than 400 inches of snowfall annually, it's no wonder why the area is considered to be one of the best ski resorts in the country.
Skiing isn't the only activity here. During the summertime, the resort offers visitors numerous opportunities to hike and mountain bike as well as paraglide. Recent visitors also said that a ride on the Jackson Hole Aerial Tram is a must, no matter the season. The 9-minute tram ride runs to the top of Rendezvous Mountain at a summit of more than 10,000 feet, allowing for breathtaking views of the Teton Mountains. If heights aren't your thing, don't fret. Travelers said there are so many activities to do there you'll likely never be bored. Some suggested arriving at the village as early as possible, as you'll probably end up staying until closing time.
