2 Salt Lake City – Montpelier – Jackson
Put on your cowboy hats, pull up your boots and get ready to make memories that will last a lifetime. Follow trails blazed by rugged mountain men centuries ago, stopping at the Oregon Trail Center in Montpelier to get a glimpse into the thrills and challenges of the Old Trail. Enjoy lunch in a covered wagon before travelling to the Old West town of Jackson. Walk through the town's famous landmark arch of tangled elk antlers and step back in time as you explore the Town Square with its Western boardwalks, craft boutiques and ice cream shops-all surrounded by the majestic Rockies. This evening, take a wagon ride out to the river for a rib-stickin' Chuckwagon Regional Dinner. (B/L/RD) Stay: Rustic Inn Creekside Resort and Spa
