|Jackson Hole encompasses the valley and mountains adjoining Grand Teton National Park. The area is open year round, with winter ski resorts and plenty of activities in summer. The town of Jackson is named after a trapper, David Jackson, who came to this valley in the early 19th century to trap beavers for their valuable fur. In Jackson Hole, kids can get a taste of the Old West, with stagecoach rides and rodeos in summer, horse-drawn sleigh rides amidst grazing elk in winter.|
