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.
Step off the beaten path and head to Hanging Lake and Evergreen Lake. Escape the urban bustle at Vail Mountain Resort and Crater Lake Trail. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Vail: Aspen (Elk Mountain Expeditions, The John Denver Sanctuary, & more), The Beach at Grand Lake (in Grand Lake) and Arkansas Valley Adventures - Day Rafting (in Kremmling). On the 9th (Sun), do a day of snowy sightseeing with Breckenridge Ski Resort. On the 11th (Tue), spend an exhilarating day on the slopes at Copper Mountain. There's lots more to do: cast your line with Yampa Valley Anglers, relax and float downstream with Browns Canyon Rafting, take a memorable tour with Liquid Descent Whitewater Rafting, and add some adventure to your tour with The Adventure Company.

Expect a daytime high around 65°F in July, and nighttime lows around 49°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 19th (Wed) to allow enough time to travel back home.
