North America’s top ski resort- Vail, an extraordinary winter vacation destination.
If you’ve ever seen a picture of Vail, you’ve likely caught a glimpse of the iconic pedestrian village. Many of its buildings were originally built by Vail’s founders in the early 60s with a nod to classic European alpine architecture.
Vail Village retains a peaceful, small-town ambiance even with its world-class restaurants, shopping, cafes, and late night hot spots. The heated streets make for an easy walk up Bridge Street to Gondola One.
The dining scene is amazingly diverse and one of Vail’s main attractions, with Restaurant Kelly Liken, Matsuhisa Vail, Elway’s, Larkspur, Sweet Basil and many more.
Vail Village is also home to some of the most famous boutique and luxury hotels. While the hotels here are close to lifts, many offer ski valet and shuttles to make your journey to the slopes that much easier.
There’s no better way to unwind after a full day on the slopes or shopping on our cobblestone streets than with an après aperitif in hand. When the sun sets on the slopes, that’s when the real fun begins.
Relax by the fire and sip on your favorite beverage at one of our world-class après spots. With so many bars, dancing, and live-music options, you won’t be hard-pressed to find something fun and exciting while in Vail.
