It’s almost that time of year, yes the holidays, but we mean engagement season. Log onto Facebook anytime between Thanksgiving and New Year’s and it may seem like every other day one of your friends has gotten engaged. That’s because 33% of couples get engaged between Thanksgiving and New Year’s. While Jackson Hole is often considered an adventure seeker’s paradise, it is also a great place for couples to create a romantic and memorable getaway. With breathtaking mountain views, exciting excursions, and plenty of opportunities to sneak away for some solitude with your special someone, Jackson Hole has no shortage of ideal locations to pop the question. At Hotel Terra Jackson Hole we’ve seen and been a part of some incredible engagements. If you are planning a vacation to pop the question, check out some of the most incredible places with our best spots get engaged in Jackson Hole:
On the top of a mountain
With stunning 360-degree views of the valleys below, can you think of a more picturesque backdrop for such an important moment? Whether you venture to the top of the Grand Tetons, Jackson Peak, or Sleeping Indian, the views will be incredible. Or, consider popping the question on the aerial tram while you are flying 4,139 feet to the top of Rendezvous Mountain.
On a romantic sleigh ride
If you happen to be in town during the holiday season, getting engaged while on a unique Jackson Hole horse-drawn sleigh ride through the Tetons is a wonderful story to complete a perfect winter day.
On the slopes
Again, the wintertime is an incredibly romantic time to visit Jackson Hole. Why not get down on one knee while on a skiing or snowboarding trip or while snowshoeing or cross-country skiing through one of the picturesque side country hikes? Or, explore the groomed trails on a Fat Bike tour through the National Elk Refuge or Grand Teton National Park.
During a scenic float trip
The float trips down Snake River and through Grand Teton National Park offer a relaxing and dreamy way to see parts of the Grand Tetons untouched by human development for generations.
For an excellent summer adventure with your loved one, pop the question while wading through the local waters on a fly-fishing expedition.
During the Jackson Hole Rendezvous
For those who are music lovers, the Jackson Hole Rendezvous is a lifestyle and music festival in March with an amazing mix of Americana, rock, and reggae, among others. Love is in the air during this four-day festival.
Ringing in the New Year
The area rings in the New Year with a torchlight parade and an amazing display of fireworks. What better way to kick off the new year with your special someone?
Wherever you choose for the big engagement moment, there are some great restaurants where you can celebrate with a romantic post-engagement dinner and drinks.
