We have visited Vail Valley several times but this was our first visit in May. Turns out it is "mud season" and many restaurants and attractions are closed as well as many shops. We stayed at the Vail Marriott and enjoyed it very much, despite a resort fee in an off-season and that did not include parking. Great service there,... More

Go when its not crowded and the deals abound. The mountains and skiiing are exceptional, great restaurants and hotels and Shopping!. Watch the traffic alerts from the Co Dept of Transportation and it helps get you there. Just as wonderful in the summer as winter. Clay tennis courts everywhere, hiking , mountain biking, dining, you name it!

Vail valley has it all entertainment, food , lodging shopping and more. From the top of the line restaurants to a slice of pizza. You can find anything here that fits your budget.

WE love Vail Valley. This year we stayed at Lionshead. Everything was within walking distance from our condo. 50 yards you are at shops, great restaurants, the slopes. The kids loved the ice skating. Ski School for the kids was 2 minutes away from the condo. PERFECT. And, of course, we love Vail Village. Caught the bus right ourside the... More

This was my second ski trip to Vail, and I can guarantee this is the best ski resort in the USA. Great snow, scenic views, great town and apres ski, top notch restaurants, amazing spas, Vail has it all! Yes, it is more expensive than most ski resorts, but in my opinion, it is worth it! The ski school is... More

I like that it was close to the hotel but there weren't many stores that were unique. Also, since it was off season, many of the restaurants were closed.

We went to Vail with a group of friends and had an amazing time. The views of the mountains are amazing. The village has it all, restaurants, shops and bars. Excellent to take pictures and walk around the village which looks so much like a German little town.

We try to make it up at least once in the off season to just stroll around without the summer or winter crowds. Lots of construction getting into the area (roundabouts into Vail Village off of I-70) right now which really congested things up. We weren't really paying attention to which garage we parked in, so spending the day there... More
