Western White House of President Gerald Ford
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. The resort plays a big role in the village's economy and tourist industry; this is no surprise, with 21 square km (5,289 acres) of skiable area and almost 200 ski trails. The resort attracts many big-name celebrities, and upscale condos fill the town to house these guests. Visitors look forward to film and dance festivals in the town's center--it exudes European charm with latticed balconies and Austrian-style log buildings. "Bravo! Vail" is a festival of internationally recognized orchestras that visits the area annually. Unlike most towns that expand out from a city center, the village has spread into a long, narrow configuration along Interstate 70, because it's wedged at the base of the mountain.
