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!

Behold the Wild & Wonderful

For those who are nature inspired, there’s nothing like stargazing into the night sky seeking relaxation and rejuvenation after going on a day’s adventure. Visitors will be invigorated and inspired by the refreshing alpine breeze and countless outdoor activity options in our year-round vacation paradise and playground. 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. From pristine mountain escapes to serene water excursions, you can use this guide to plan your ultimate mountain vacation.

You must try this! Skip the traffic and find a flight via flyvail.com. Flying into the heart of the Rocky Mountains over the Continental Divide and landing at the newly renovated Eagle County Regional Airport (EGE) provides the best vantage point in experiencing the majestic mountain ranges that stimulates inspiration and wonder.

Driving during severe winter weather conditions can be demanding. The best advice for driving in bad winter weather is not to drive at all, if you can avoid it. If you must go, scan www.COTrip.org for travel warnings and pass-closure alerts before hitting the road. And be sure your car has winter-appropriate tires. (If you’re renting a vehicle, it’s best to reserve one with AWD or 4WD before heading up into the mountains.)
