Visit Vail Valley Visitor's Guide

You’re Invited to Play, Relax & Restore

I’m pleased to extend a personal invitation for you to visit the Vail Valley. Our valley, best know for Vail and Beaver Creek, offers something for everyone and we’re confident you’ll find that all our communities will provide life-long memories.

Our mountain towns (Vail, Minturn, Red Cliff, Beaver Creek, Avon, EagleVail, Edwards, Wolcott, Eagle and Gypsum) are world-renowned for the variety of year-round sports, special events and recreation options. The Vail Valley is a true year-round destination, and we hope you might visit us often to try a new season! We’re more than skiing and snowboarding; farmer’s markets, mountain biking, hiking, music, on the water river experiences, and other events fill the valley.

Visit Vail Valley, the official digital visitor’s guide to the Vail Valley is designed to provide trip ideas, itinerary suggestions, locals’ tips and insider information to make your stay enjoyable and memorable.

On behalf of the entire community, thank you for visiting!

Hospitality and dining is at it’s finest in each, unique mountain town in the Vail Valley that provide ways to restore via spa treatments, heated pools and deliciously unforgettable cuisine. Surrounded by panoramic landscapes, take in a majestic mountain sunset during “après” or happy hour.
