Colorado Trip- Vail Village

My husband and I have to make a quick decision about using some airline miles. One of our options is to fly into Denver (we live in Alabama). To be honest I have never even looked into going to Denver--but a friend suggested Vail Village and it looks nice. We would travel the end of September or Early October.

What is the weather like during this time? Any suggestions of other places to go around Vail? We are interested in relaxing and enjoying the scenery--will probably stay 4-5 days.

That time of year is usually a great time to visit. You might have rain or snow in the mountains, but chances are the weather would be beautiful and you'll see some fall color. Fall weather most often has crisp, chilly mornings and evenings and nice sunny days requiring a sweatshirt or light jacket.

Thanks. Sounds great. Any suggestions of other places to go to around that area. Should we stay there and make day trips to other areas or stay at a few different places?

Google a couple of places to determine what sounds like it may interest you:

Glenwood Springs, Leadville, Aspen ... all great spots to visit within a 100 mile radius.

The last week of Sept can be spectacular if the aspens are changing. The mountain is splashed in vibrant yellow and orange hues! Weather can be variable but days can be comfortably warm and sunny. Pricing for accommodations drop after Labor Day, so shop around for the best deal.
