1. Head to the Bar J Chuckwagon

This is hands down one of the best family friendly places around Jackson. This is a must if you haven’t been here yet! Basically you go through the buffet line and fill your plate, then you sit down on these long picnic tables and watch the bluegrass show while you eat. The show is full of excellent music on a variety of instruments, and there is plenty of humor mixed in. All ages will LOVE this show from 1-100. The whole experience is so much fun and we highly recommend going here with your family! You can find more information here.

2. Go on a Scenic Chairlift Ride

The Snow King Mountain offers a great scenic chairlift ride that you will enjoy! It lasts about 20 minutes and gives a view of the Elk Refuge, the Teton Mountains, and Jackson Hole town square. All ages will enjoy this ride. Find current information on the chairlift ride here.

3. Sleigh Ride through the Elk Refuge

Combining a sleigh ride with seeing live elk up close is an experience that your family will never forget. This is a highlight for everyone who has gone on it. The sleigh drivers are super knowledgeable and will teach you all about elk as you ride around. The elk are majestic animals and your kids will have a blast getting so close to them. We highly recommend this sleigh ride! If you want a discount, feel free to check out our Stay and Sleigh Special here at the Flat Creek Inn.
