A Stroll Through Jackson Hole’s Town Square

A trip to Jackson Hole isn’t complete until you’ve visited the iconic Town Square (also known as the George Washington Memorial Park). It’s a fun experience that you and your family will remember forever.

Jackson Hole Antler Arches

There are arches made out of elk antlers on all four corners of the square. Here is a live stream of one of the antler arches in the Town Square. While you’re there, you’ve got to take a family photo under one of the arches!

Inside the Town Square

There are several benches to sit and rest (or people watch!) while you are visiting the Town Square. It’s a great place to have a little picnic, or just stop and enjoy the views.

Here is another live stream of the Town Square.

Shopping Near the Town Square

The Town Square is surrounded on all four sides by stores and restaurants. Everything is very walkable, and it’s fun to window shop and see the unique gifts and items that Jackson Hole has to offer. You can find stores selling western themed jewelry, art galleries, a candy store, clothing stores, and even the famous Million Dollar Cowboy Bar right next to the Town Square.
