Explore the 1,106-acre Laurence S. Rockefeller Preserve (or LSR Preserve) on the shore of Phelps Lake. Opened in 2008, its state-of-the-art visitor center and the park’s interpretive facility are among the most environmentally advanced buildings in the entire national park system.

Jackson Hole, Wyoming

For anyone oriented toward the outdoors, Jackson Hole comes pretty close to perfection.

97 percent of the valley is state and federal land, while the Jackson Hole Land Trust has gained protection for another 15,000 acres of ranchland. This is where you'll find some of the country's best out-your-front-door recreation.

With the Jackson Hole Community Center for the Arts, the National Museum of Wildlife Art, and dozens of art galleries, the town of Jackson has become a major center for Western painting and sculpture.

Food and drink possiblities range from the new and upscale to the classic joints like the Million Dollar Cowboy Bar. And once you have your fill of town life, Grand Teton trails are waiting for you.
