A family vacation in Wyoming will be nothing short of an epic adventure! Appreciate the state’s towering mountain ranges, gorgeous National Parks, and interesting Old West history when you visit on your next exciting getaway. Though it’s a popular destination all year round, a lot of families love to vacation in Wyoming during the winter for its accessible skiing. One of the best places to do so is the Four Seasons Resort and Residences Jackson Hole, located in Teton Village. Ranked as one of the best ski-in/ski-out resorts in the United States, we highly recommend it. Enjoy convenience to the mountain, fantastic ski school, and other kid-friendly amenities! Nearby, you’ll also find Jackson, Wyoming, one of the most charming American towns to visit with your kids. If your family wants to enjoy a fun December vacation in Wyoming, you could also visit the Grand Targhee Ski Resort in Alta. 

Wyoming is also a gateway to two of the most kid-friendly National Parks in the United States. Read our guide to Yellowstone National Park with kids for tips on the best trails for kids! Or, visit Wyoming’s other famous park with our guide to Grand Tetons National Park with kids. For a longer trip, you could also combine a visit to multiple national parks.

With our sixteen-day National Park itinerary, you could also plan a more extended vacation. Visit multiple National Parks, including nearby destinations such as South Dakota, Montana, or Colorado. It’s a great option for the summer, or even a nice spring break vacation idea with kids.
