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.
Discover out-of-the-way places like Vail Recreation Path and Fishing Charters & Tours. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Vail: Aspen (Maroon Lake Scenic Trail, Maroon Bells, & more), Glenwood Springs (Glenwood Canyon Bike Trail & Linwood Cemetery) and River Rafting & Tubing (in Buena Vista). Next up on the itinerary: trek along Booth Falls Trail, take a stroll through Vail Valley, explore and take pictures at Piney River Ranch, and trot along with a tour on horseback.

August in Vail sees daily highs of 62°F and lows of 46°F at night. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 17th (Sat) so you can travel back home.
