Crowded, no parking, traffic - hardly the ingredients for a vacation. We staying a a AirBnB rental in West Vail which was Ok. I'd not stay in West Vail again, though.

Even older persons can find your winter inner self in Vail. With so many wonderful choice to dine and the wonderful shopping you can fly into Vail Eagle and take the shuttle and never need your vehicle. Should you decide to leave the area for some sight seeing there are other options. We did a couple of excursions with a... More

Vail village has a nice assortment of shops, restaurants and places to stay. They also host the best trick or treat event that we have ever attended and it is free!

We have been enjoying Vail since its "birth" and come as often as we can. Winter and Summer, Fall and Spring, the ever changing seasons with their special joys - can't ever get enough!

There is so much to do in Vail Valley. If you can think it up...you can do it here. It is now just about skiing. The rest of the year you have more to do than you can ever get done in a week long stay. You should visit for 2 weeks minimum. And the food is fantastic too.

We have loved Vail for over 40 years, and in spite of how much it has grown, it is always a side trip for us whenever we go to Denver. With great restaurants, shops, and hotels, as well as outdoor activities in all seasons, it is truly a treat to visit.

We stopped in Vail for the day in late May. It is an absolutely gorgeous town! I was worried it would be unaffordable for us to shop or eat there, but they have a nice range of stores and restaurants for all income levels. I thought everyone was so nice and friendly. I loved walking the streets without any traffic,... More
