This old mining town has evolved into the Vail Valley’s most unique and eclectic neighborhood. It boasts a centralized main street lined with colorful buildings and independent shops and restaurants. Its architecture is a mixture of historic homes and mountain modern structures, all built against the sweeping landscape of steep mountains and a rushing river.
This charming town is a gateway to outdoor activities and the end of the road on the Minturn Mile, a challenging out-of-bounds ski route that begins at chair 3 or 7 on Vail Mountain. Its small population of 1,037 allows the quirky small town feeling to persist.
