The town of Vail is best known as the host of the famed Vail Mountain ski resort and the home to luxury real estate, but there is so much more to this community. In recent years, it has become the well-established culinary and cultural center of the Vail Valley. The centralized downtown area is extremely pedestrian friendly and offers dozens of shops, restaurants and activities. Residents enjoy performances at Ford Amphitheater, events such as the GoPro Mountain games and the largest farmers market in the state of Colorado.
Vail Village’s architecture was modeled after European alpine villages and the town is situated along Gore Creek, offering vistas of the Gore Range and Vail Mountain. There are many unique neighborhoods outside the town center which offer desirable features ranging from golf course location to national forest access.
