Vail is an incredibly special place to us and we can't for you to enjoy all that it has to offer.
Our favorite place for morning coffee, pastries or breakfast burritos.
A small corner store with great Italian sandwiches. Perfect for a quick lunch right in the heart of Vail Village.
Looking for a beer the size of a your head and a pretzel with beer cheese? You've come to the right place. This is one of our favorite après spots and features big beer steins and delicious Bavarian style food.
The Vail Farmers Market is entering its 20th year in Vail on Meadow Drive. The event started with a few tents and now has grown to over 100 tents for 16 Sundays of the summer.
Great, reasonably priced spot to rent bikes (road or mountain) for the day!
Solaris Plaza is home to many great shops and activities! On the weekend, play corn hole and ping-pong outside of Vail Brewing Company, take part in a morning yoga class on the green, or listen to Jazz on an adirondack chair!

Located upstairs in Solaris Plaza. Sit on the patio and enjoy some local craft brews.
The restaurant is part of the bowling alley but has great outdoor seating and a great spot to people watch and have a casual bite.
