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 Fishing Charters & Tours and Booth Falls Trail. Change things up with these side-trips from Vail: Dillon Reservoir (in Dillon), Rio Grande Trail (in Aspen) and Breckenridge (Vail Pass Path, McCullough Gulch, & more). There's lots more to do: take a stroll through Vail Valley, take a memorable drive along Guanella Pass, trek along St Mary's Glacier, and explore the landscape on two wheels at Vail Recreation Path.

August in Vail sees daily highs of 62°F and lows of 46°F at night. Cap off your sightseeing on the 17th (Sat) early enough to travel back home.
