Originally built as a base for Vail Ski Resort, the town of Vail has blossomed into its own destination, but still has less than 6,000 permanent residents.
Attractions like River Rafting & Tubing and Horseback Riding Tours make great kid-friendly stops. Get out of town with these interesting Vail side-trips: Glenwood Springs (Hanging Lake Trail, Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park, & more), Breckenridge (Broken Compass Brewery & Tap House, Breckenridge Welcome Center, & more) and Aspen (Independence Pass, Aspen Mountain / Ajax, & more). On the 26th (Mon), dedicate a day to the elevated beauty of Winter Park Resort. Next up on the itinerary: stroll through Vail Recreation Path, take in nature's colorful creations at Betty Ford Alpine Gardens, wander the streets of Vail Valley, and trek along Booth Falls Trail.

In August, daily temperatures in Vail can reach 62°F, while at night they dip to 46°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 29th (Thu) to allow time to travel back home.
