Vail

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.
You'll visit kid-friendly attractions like River Rafting & Tubing and Independence Pass. Change things up with these side-trips from Vail: Glenwood Springs (Hanging Lake Trail, Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park, &more), Breckenridge (Broken Compass Brewery & Tap House, Breckenridge Welcome Center, &more) and Carousel of Happiness (in Nederland). On the 25th (Sun), dedicate a day to the elevated beauty of Aspen Mountain / Ajax. The adventure continues: tour the pleasant surroundings at Vail Recreation Path, admire the natural beauty at Betty Ford Alpine Gardens, trek along Booth Falls Trail, and grab your bike and head to Rio Grande Trail.

To see more things to do, where to stay, reviews, and other tourist information, you can read our Vail travel route builder website.

In August, daytime highs in Vail are 62°F, while nighttime lows are 46°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 29th (Thu) early enough to travel back home.
