All reviews ski village town area off season european feel winter or summer ice skating great place to walk free bus outdoor activities beautiful mountains walk around ski vacation farmers market white water rafting architecture lionshead denver
We enjoyed walking around during the day & night. So many shops and loved watching the ice skating at night. The Village was decorated for Christmas. The Village reminded me of the Hallmark Christmas movies you see on tv.
I'm reminded this month of a trip my wife and I took to Vail, Colorado, last October 2017. We also went to Aspen that same month. Of the two, we preferred Vail the most. (We also enjoyed Aspen). Vail was easier to get to from...More

We were in Vail visiting friends, and came into town from Texas to experience the fun Fourth of July parade, (always an interesting day, as we are Brits!!) My favourite performers were the men with the folding lawn chair routine - excellent fun! Plenty of...More

I would recommend skiing at Breckenridge which is 40 minutes away and closer to Denver. They are higher elevation (9,600 feet at base) because Vail is lower elevation and the front of the Mountain melts early in the spring... More
I would recommend skiing at Breckenridge which is 40 minutes away and closer to Denver. They are higher elevation (9,600 feet at base) because Vail is lower elevation and the front of the Mountain melts early in the spring. Breckenridge stays open until the third week in April. Not because of snow but because skiers have lost interest and not enough demand to keep open.

Best grocery store in the Vail Valley? (3 Replies)
We're based in Avon but willing to drive to Vail or whereever to find a good grocery. Non factory famed meat, organic produce, good rustic breads, good cheese section, that sort of thing. Thanks.

The best cheese selection is at the City Market in Avon, it's a outpost of Murray's Cheese Shop in NYC, they also have a decent selection of organic produce, there are some Crystal Farm meats too but you are better off trying Cut in Edwards for specialty meat and fish, they might still have cheese next door at Dish too. Some people like Avon Bakery for their organic breads. The closest Whole Foods is in Frisco about 45 minutes away. Door to Door Organics delivers a couple days a week from...More

Restaurants, things not to miss (3 Replies)
We head to BC tomorrow. Can't wait! Haven't seen much discussion on restaurants or things to do (besides skiing). We like high end places but also those simple or odd places that make people love BC. We would also be interested in nearby villages or small towns. In short, something that just stands out as, if you visited the BC/Vail Valley only one time, what would that be the one restaurant or non-skiing activity you would not miss?

I always suggest getting OUT of the resort if you really want to find unique experiences. Here are a few suggestions: Try the Village of Edwards, just 5 minutes west. About 16 restaurants there, cute shopping area. The high end choices there would be Juniper or Zino's. For funky fun places try the GasHouse, Dish or Sato's (sushi) Try Vista at Arrowhead, great food, great music. All the restaurants in Vail & Beaver Creek are outstanding but as far as unique, I'd recommend Beano's or...More
