We love that most all of the parking is underground & the town is a walking community. It has a charm you don't see in many US cities. There is lots art, good food, great views & skiing. What more could you ask for?

Vail Valley is a nice walking town. Just love the back drop of the mountains. A couple of creeks run through town to further add to the charm. Otherwise, the usual mix of restaurants, shops, bars, etc.

Town is easy to get around. High prices but lots of great shopping and places to eat. Least busy shopping is during the Sunday farmers market.
