Located in central Colorado among the majestic Rocky Mountains, Vail is world-renowned. While this quaint alpine village is known as the largest and most popular ski resort in North America, it’s also the perfect summertime getaway offering sunny days, cool evenings, breathtaking scenery, and a vast array of mountain activities including award-winning golf courses, whitewater rafting, fly-fishing, jeep tours, hiking, world class shopping, international cuisine, musical and theater productions, and more.
