Things to do

Immerse yourself in mountain life

If you’re planning to book a vacation rental in West Jefferson, you probably love the mountains—and that’s good because West Jefferson is a mountain town at heart. That means tons of things to do and see outdoors. Pack a picnic and your hiking boots for a day at Mount Jefferson State Natural Area. While you’re there, take advantage of the free educational programs led by park rangers and designed to teach participants more about the natural world. Check ahead of time, though, as some of these require advance registration. The arts district is another must-see.

Abundant entertainment options include golf, theater, and fishing.


Come prepared for changing weather

In West Jefferson, it’s not uncommon to experience several seasons in one day. Snow can change to sunshine—or vice-versa—with surprising speed. That means that you should arrive at your West Jefferson vacation rental prepared for a range of weather. Some days will see rain or snow, but most of the time the skies are clear and blue.
