Known as a winter wonderland, Vail is not to be missed during the early fall. The leaves are changing, the evening air is crisp and cool, and the crowds are thinning out. While some features are more limited (I.e. the gondolas only run Fri, Sat,...More

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.

Even that it is a relative new town, its amazing, great city scape all year round, bad is the lack of parking lots

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
