Afton, Wyoming

 A whistle-stop 60 miles south of Jackson Hole, Afton is the yang to Jackson's Lexus-ridden yin. Local ranchers and businessmen wear their spurs on the town's single, facade-lined main street – and you won't find any "I felt the Tetons" T-shirts for sale. But you do have your choice of eight mountain ranges, four of the state's best fly-fishing rivers, four national forests, and Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks right next door.

What to Do for Fun: Yellowstone Outfitters has been leading horsepacking trips and ripping trout lips since 1950. The Old Mill has three log cabins – stocked with a hot tub and handmade quilts – in the sage-covered hills south of town.
