As the southern gateway to two of the nation's most famed national parks, Jackson, Wyoming offers unparalleled beauty and opportunity of adventure. I love living in Jackson because of its scenic views, laidback lifestyle, and outdoor recreational opportunities. The majority of job options in Jackson are concentrated in the service and travel industry or in ranching. Many residents chose jobs in which they telecommute from home offices.
The best area in Jackson is clearly its unmatched access to Grand Teton National Park, just a few minutes away. Less than 60 miles away is the venerable Yellowstone National Park and its famous attractions including the Old Faithful geyser. The nearby Jackson Hole Mountain Resort, Grand Targhee, and the Snow King Mountain Resort all offer some of the best snow skiing in the country. The National Elk Refuge offers its visitors some of the most unique wildlife viewings in the area. Jackson's historic Town Square boasts a myriad of shopping and dining options.
