This is a very clean, posh, attractive and pedestrian-friendly site. Great shops, restaurants, cafes and more. Something for everyone. Seems to be a place for locals (ie the public library is nearby along with some religious centers and hiking/biking trails) but mainly a place for...More

We had to drive a bit further to get to Vail Ski resort but it’s worth it! Probably my favorite in Colorado. After snow days, the condition were outstanding. I had fun doing blues and blacks. A bunch of trails, I probably still missed some...More

Vail is amazing even in the summer!! There are a lot of things to do provided your willing to spend the money. We enjoyed the gondola trip to the top and hiking the mountain.

1st time visiting in summer was spectacular - equally as good as winter snow. New walking track was beautiful (cabin trail), plenty of options for hiking & mountain biking. The gondola is fun & the views of wildflowers are breath-taking. Definitely recommend a visit.

You don't need to read reviews to know that Vail is world class and with a visit. Just plan your hotel or VRBO early as the valley had limited places during high season.
