Vail proper is quite pleasant because the main center is a walking area with cars safely stowed in municipal parking lots throughout the city. There are a lot of interesting shopping and dining opportunities (take the platinum card) as well as pleasant resting areas just to stop and rest. The surrounding valley offers unlimited opportunities for active individuals - biking,... More

We have now visited the Vail Valley for several years. We have taken many friends and family with us. It's become a yearly vacation. There is something for everyone. Hiking, fishing, biking, some great golf courses, many fabulous restaurants, spas, shopping and great outdoor/indoor concerts and events. The Vail Valley is different from many of the mountain resort areas in... More

Ahhhhh! Heaven on Earth! So sad that so many have explored what has been my true haven for 40 years, but so glad that it is still going strong!! There's no place like it on Earth!

This place is an adventurers dream. Great for families of all ages. Do your research cause a week isn't enough time. But then again, it is a great reason to return. There are things to do in every season! Rafting, hiking, golf, festivals, art and farmers markets, amazing restaurants, biking, I haven't even mentioned winter stuff yet.

Have visited Vail over the years, it is my favorite ski resort to visit in summer. Vail has a lot of character and a wide variety of shops--some over the top upscale and those for the average customer. I have found that the area is getting increasingly snobbish and felt like visitors were not wanted. Aspen is the same way... More

Nothing like it on earth...the town is nice the mountain is EPIC. It is massive and if mother nature in in sync with your time on the slopes then the good times with flow on the slopes. If you know where to go you can find the terrain on Vail it is over seven miles wide and goes on for... More

If you are only going to take the time to really look around at one valley in Colorado, Vail is a real good candidate. And if you're from sea level, pay attention to those warnings about altitude sickness.

Well, it is not quite Suisse, but it is close. We enjoyed a long stroll through the pedestrian friendly town - lots of shops, covered bridges, flowers, good restaurants, tumbling river, the Betty Ford Garden, town fountains, a free shuttle bus back and forth through town, nice statues, great photo opportunities, beautiful alpine architecture. Restaurants are good, benches are plentiful;... More

I usually visit Vail Valley in the winter to ski, but summer is awesome as well. I love riding my bike from Vail over Vail Pass.
