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.
Kids will enjoy River Rafting & Tubing and Horseback Riding Tours. Visiting Vail Mountain Resort and Vail Recreation Path will get you outdoors. Take a break from Vail with a short trip to St Mary's Glacier in Idaho Springs, about 1h 30 min away. There's more to do: tour the pleasant surroundings at Booth Falls Trail.

New York City

Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Get outdoors at Speed Boats Tours and Horse-Drawn Carriage Tours. Step off the beaten path and head to Food Tours and New York Public Library. There's much more to do: make a trip to The Metropolitan Museum of Art, test your team's savvy at popular escape rooms, pause for some photo ops at Statue of Liberty National Monument, and enjoy breathtaking views from Empire State Building.

Make your New York City itinerary with Inspirock to find out what to see and where to go.

Getting from Vail to New York City by combination of shuttle and flight takes about 8.5 hours. Other options: do a combination of shuttle, flight, and bus; or drive.
