Vail, Colorado – A Sky Level Overview
Founded in the 1960s, this Bavarian-styled mountain town is a secluded tourist attraction for lovers of winter sports and those seeking a tranquil wedding with panoramic views. With scenic shops, restaurants, and distinctive architecture, this valley town is a world of its own. A true getaway from the day-to-day trappings of life, a destination wedding amongst the sweeping cliffsides of Vail is sure to be an intimate, cozy affair.
Endless Fun, From Peaks to Valleys
Though it might be a small town, Vail and its surrounding forests and trails burst at the seams with delights. Skiers and winter sports fans will feel especially at home amongst these frosty mountaintops, with over 5,000 acres of skiable hills and land to explore and cruise down… cementing it as one of the most incredible alpine locations in the world.
And Vail’s merriment isn’t limited to the colder months. Despite its elevation, Vail sees very mild, dry climates during summer, making it an excellent location for nature lovers. With over 17 miles of recreational paths, the majesty of the surrounding 350,000 acres of forest is awesome for runners, hikers, cyclists, fly fishers, and even fans of mountain-top yoga! For more nature delights, Vail is also home to some gorgeous botanical gardens. Fun-fact: these are the highest-elevation botanical gardens in the world!
Vail is also known as a hidden cultural gem, as a home to annual festivals celebrating the arts. Bravo! Vail is an annual classical music festival that attracts fans of the genre worldwide. Vail Film Festival is another exciting yearly event. Dedicated to celebrating vibrant independent films outside the mainstream, this spirited affair is a must-attend for cinema lovers and just another of the many unique things about Vail, Colorado!
