Everything about Vail, in every season, intrigues me and pleases me! This was our first midsummer visit, and the flowers and landscaping could not be more beautiful. The whole Vail area is kept so neat and clean, and everywhere we went, we were snapping pics of the gorgeous Alpine gardens and foliage and beauty.

This is a beautiful little spot, it really got warmer than I thought it would, however very cool in the evenings. Great place to walk around, bike, enjoy mountain trails - low or high. We had some great hiking adventures and the views from the trails at the top of the mountain are incredible. Great news is you can take... More

We have fallen in love with Vail, mostly because of the Village. The buildings are charming and quaint, so many restaurant and shopping choices, just something for everyone! We have visited several times and will definitely be back.

We loved walking this beautiful area full of shops and resturants, close to the ski area.They have boot shops, hat shops, delis and food foods to be found. There is plenty of parking and a shuttle. You will love your visit there in the summer as well as for skiing.

No matter where you stay you must walk around Vail Valley. On the weekend it is much more lively than during the week. Saturday night in the Valley was a lot of fun. Sunday is the farmers market. Great little area with tons of shops and restaurants.

Made our first trip to Vail this June. The weather was perfect! We wandered around the village and enjoyed the beautiful scenery, landscaping, and the river running through the town. Many restaurants offer outdoor seating, and this was the perfect time to take advantage! The shops are fun and unique, but there are a few that are laughably expensive. (I... More

We came here for summer holiday not knowing what it would be like but decided it was good place, lots going on even though most of the chair lifts are closed. Parking is free at the moment though I was informed it would cost $25 per day during winter season, most restaurants offer good discounts on food. Good bargains on... More

Vail is perfect--just as Disney Land is perfect. Everything is fresh, well taken care of, modern and every amenity is there. Most importantly, it's a skiers paradise with incredible Rocky Mountain views. Families and groups will love it here in the winter AND summer. Of course, Vail is expensive--no, make that very expensive. From the most upscale of hotels, to... More

My first trip to Vail won't be my last! It was so much fun and absolutely beautiful! We loved the gondola to Mid Vail and the chair lift to Wildwood was very comfortable. The slopes were varied and fun. It was breathtaking! People from all over the world were skiing and dancing and laughing and having a great time. The... More
