Jackson Hole, Wyo.

Jackson Hole borders the spectacular Grand Teton National Park and is only short distance from Yellowstone National Park. It can't get much better than that, right? Actually, it can.

In the winter, you can practically ski right into the city's downtown from spectacular Snow King, and in the summer you can enjoy rafting, hiking and biking through some of the country's most beautiful range lands, where buffalo really do roam, along with elk, moose and bear.
