Pack for the Season

Something I love about the Grand Tetons is the variety of weather. Every season brings something new and exciting. With that, It is pretty important to know what to expect during your travel.


May & Oct
Average Temps: 30° – 60°
Medium-High Chance for Rain
11-14hrs of sunlight


Average Temps: 40° – 85°
Low to Medium Chance for Rain
13-16hrs of sunlight


Average Temps: -5° – 35°
High Chances for Snow
9-12hrs of sunlight

Note that while packing for your Jackson Hole honeymoon, keep in mind that the weather can vary quite a bit. I highly recommend packing layers of clothing and good shoes for the season. Hiking boots are perfect for any season, however you may also want to back some tennis shoes and sandals for summer as you will be able to enjoy the lakes.

Traveling to Jackson is pretty decent. The airport, located just 9 miles from the town square, has nonstop flights from 13 major cities. So, chances are you may have a connecting flight, but you won’t have to drive far from the airport to get to your honeymoon!

Once landed, I recommend that you use a rental car. You can definitely walk everywhere in the warmer months if you are staying in the center of downtown Jackson. However, to make the most of your honeymoon, you will want to explore the Grand Tetons, go on hikes, and take on some adventure! By renting a car you will be able to do so much more!

Jackson Hole Honeymoon Lodging

I recommend getting lodging in Jackson, Wilson or Teton Village for easy convenience when working with wedding day vendors and being close to restaurants, shops, gas stations, grocery stores, the park, activities, etc. There are some places in the park that can be convenient as well. Lodging options in towns close to Alpine, Driggs, or Victor can work. They are pretty places too, but add about an hour to your drive. If you plan on spending most of your time in Grand Teton National Park or the town of Jackson, I recommend staying closer.

Here are a few options in different categories to help you decide!
