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.
Explore Vail's surroundings by going to Fairy Forest (in Breckenridge), Independence Pass (in Aspen) and River Rafting & Tubing (in Buena Vista). Pack the 26th (Thu) with family-friendly diversions at Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park. And it doesn't end there: trot along with a tour on horseback, admire the natural beauty at Betty Ford Alpine Gardens, boost your wellbeing at a local thermal spa, and look for gifts at Eagle Tourist Information Center.

For photos, other places to visit, more things to do, and other tourist information, read Vail journey planner .

Expect a daytime high around 58°F in September, and nighttime lows around 43°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 27th (Fri) so you can travel back home.
