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.
