Hike, bike (summer and fall activities), ski, snowshoe (winter and spring). Swim, fish, view arts, enjoy flowers, fine dining, adventure sports and activities for the kids! All this in a beautiful setting of one of the prettiest mountain valleys in Colorado. Worth a visit -- or many visits -- to enjoy all there is to offer.

Don't expect Vail in summer to be like Vail in winter. No crowds, no skiers, just beautiful scenery. Very laid back and relaxing. Still those great restaurants and the bonhomie and great hospitality of the people. We stayed with family, so cannot speak to hotels/lodging. Plenty of activity, hiking, biking, white water rafting. One day we had missed the local... More

Vail with its three Villages offers all summer- and winter activities for everybody, young and old, singles and families. If you love to bike, this is your place. Seeing mountains and valleys from the top of a mountain, this is the place, trails are everywhere and very well marked. Plenty of adventures for Kids. Winter is a different chapter altogether....

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.
