Residents of Jackson have great quality of life and is never boring. It's beautiful here and the wildlife is really special. However, Jackson is a polarized community in many ways. There are the uber rich and very poor, super conservative and very liberal...There is not much diversity in the resident population and those that are not white, straight, Americans feel some sense of animosity. You'd also think that in such a beautiful place we would be really advanced in our eco-friendliness but not so...You'd be surprised by the amount of pollution in our local streams and the backlash when banning plastic bags came up in the local government. The rest of Wyoming views Jackson Hole as the "California" of Wyoming. Still, I will probably live here the rest of my life and will be happy to do it. There is a great sense of community in spite of some of the issues and you can't beat the National Parks for beauty and recreational opportunities.

Closest thing to living in a bubble as it comes. Healthy, wealthy, highly educated residents. Outdoor oasis with national parks in every direction & 2 ski resorts within 10 mins. Schools are fairly good. Long, snowy cold winters. No crime at all. Dog friendly. Small town feel. No diversity whatsoever- Hispanic & white, that's it- literally. Won't be buying a house within town limits for any less than 900k unless you go for a 1 bedroom apartment which won't be much cheaper. Super expensive & very VERY low housing availability.
Beautiful town, not the easiest place to grow up due to the communities wealth and drug culture but all in all have had a great experience here over the last almost 18 years. One of the most unique places I have ever been with breath taking views everywhere you look.
