Vail makes you feel like you`re in some Swiss mountain resort. Luxurious and expensive, but there`s cheaper options if you know where to look.

There is something just magical about Vail Village in December! The Christmas Cheer and lots of happy families and young people enjoying the start of the Holiday and ski season! It was especially wonderful to have arrived after a mega snowstorm that had the Rockies looking absolutely majestic!! As for Vail, it is a lovely place to stroll! You will... More

I really enjoyed walking around Lionshead Village! The village is fairly small, but full of life. I was really impressed by the amount staff walking around and helping people out. There are lots of souvenir shops and restaurants that are decently priced. Lionshead Village is defiantly worth a visit, even if you are just walking around or exploring! There are... More

My family recently traveled to the Vail Valley for a wedding/ski trip. In Vail Village you can not find any resort/store/restaurant etc that is not first rate. Expertly managed and maintained this small village is like a high end European ski village. Skiing was fabulous with well maintained equipment and groomed runs, all in all it was a magical week....

Vail, with it's two main villages - Vail Village and Lionshead Village- make for an amazing trip. From a romantic couples getaway to a family trip with kids, there is so much to do all conveniently located to most accommodations. Only 2-3 hours out of Denver, it is an amazing beautiful outdoor playground!!

Everything in the Vail Village shouts expensive shops. Restaurant and shops are pricey but it's Vail. But bargains can be found if you do your searching. It snowed almost a foot last night but the walks are dry (as you can see in the pictures) - that's 'cause they're heated. How cool is that? - no pun intended. That's not... More

Nestled on a high valley along I-70, this 8,000' community is built outward from its very Swiss-like village. It is very narrow with homes, apartments and condos continuing to pop up. Skiing of course is the hub of all activities.

A place for family and for couples. The Vail Valley is a nice place to listen to music, observe families and kids having fun or have a good meal. Better after an adventure to lower your adrenaline levels.
