One of our favorite things about summer vacation is the utter abandonment of your calendar. Forgetting the date and letting time float by makes us nostalgic for the ice cream filled summer days of our childhood. But just like it did when we were kids, Labor Day Weekend is signaling the final hoorah of the summer. End your summer on a high note by spending August in the mountains before autumn blows in the shorter, cooler days. Lucky for us, the blurry, golden haze of late August in Jackson Hole offers some of the best days we get. Make sure to book an Outpost vacation rental today, and get excited for your late summer getaway!
For the BBQ Enthusiast
Take advantage of your back deck, and enjoy the smokey, grilled flavors of summer from your BBQ. Our local farms are at the height of their production, so make sure to pop through the Farmer’s Market over Labor Day Weekend, or hit up the Wednesday People’s Market through the rest of August and September. Don’t forget to swing by Sweet Cheeks Meats for cuts of the best locally sourced meat around. Insider tip: go for the ribeyes, they’re worth every penny!
For the Avid Flyfisherperson
This is the best time of year to cast your line. The river is at its lowest point, the hatches are buzzing, and the cooler nights and mornings bring more active, biting fish. As the golden hues of August spread into the aspen trees, the views from the river get even better. Book your guided fishing trip today.
For the Animal Enthusiast
Though the elk aren’t bugling quite yet, the turn of the season is a great time to view wildlife. Book a wildlife safari and experience the exquisite animals who call this place home.

Looking to get up close and personal? Book a horseback ride through the foothills of the Teton Mountain range. With no sound but the gentle clip of hooves on dirt, you’ll feel transported to a time long past in our beautiful valley.
For the Artist
From August 5-7, come enjoy the 57 Annual Art Fair in Jackson Hole! Beckoning work from local artists, and artists from around the region, this much anticipated event showcases a wide array of pieces. Otherwise, spend a morning immersed in some of America’s most celebrated painters and photographers at the National Museum of Wildlife Art. Finish your tour with views of the Elk Refuge with lunch at Palate. After being inspired by the museum’s incredible collection, take a walk through the many galleries downtown. Who knows, you might find something you just can’t go home without!
While we’re sad to see the final days of summer approaching, August ushers in a beautifully slow, even romantic transition to fall. Book your end of summer getaway to join us in celebrating the last of this incredible season, and welcome in the early splashes of autumn in Jackson.
