Family Friendly Vail

family friendly vail

Vail is the place to be with your family. The Colorado Rocky Mountain resort town offers an abundance of places to see and things to do in the tradition of the majestic mountains. An amazing experience for all ages, it’s the perfect place for a family vacation, to bring everyone together and share something special. With all the busy lives so many of us lead, it can be difficult to find time to get together as a family. Even dinners, those traditional moments of breaking bread together as a whole unit, are often eaten in a rush these days. Depending on your unique family dynamic, there is always an increased value in time together the more that you spend time apart. This makes family vacations all the more special and indeed important. So when you want to plan something good to bring the whole crew together, kids and parents and grandparents, maybe even some cousins thrown into the mix for good measure, come to Vail.

The picturesque cobblestone streets and alpine architecture are like something out of a fairytale, and the town of Vail inspires something within, like a connective sense of magic. You feel connected to the environment, nestled within the forest and the mountains with the rivers running through it; connected to each other. No matter when you visit during the year there is always something to do that everyone will enjoy. The summers are perfect for hiking and fishing and whitewater rafting and golfing and adventure parks. The winters are perfect for skiing (probably the main draw in the peak snow season) and snowshoeing and tubing and snowmobiling. All these activities can work wonders at bringing your family closer together with a shared experience that is out of the ordinary. But of course there’s so much more to do besides getting active.

Vail is the perfect place for shopping and dining as well. Spend your days in leisure, moseying from one unique shop to the next, one art gallery to the next, one museum to the next. And the dining is next level, with some of the finest meals you’ll ever taste available all over town. Vail offers a little bit of everything, from Mexican to Greek, Italian to Japanese, and of course the classic Americana steaks and burgers – all done phenomenally. It’s a next level sort of experience here in Vail, where no expense has been spared on details in providing the ultimate mountain vacation experience.

Speaking of the skiing, Vail Mountain is continuously ranked as one of the best ski resorts in North America for its diversity of terrain, excellent facilities, and premium snow. In fact, Vail Mountain is the largest ski resort in the United States, with three distinct skiable areas (Lionshead, Vail Village, and Golden Peak) featuring 193 runs in total. This should be enough to get you going for a few days anyway, with plenty of challenging black diamond runs for the advanced skiers and plenty of green runs for the beginners, and everything in between. All set to the backdrop of some truly spectacular landscapes.

When it’s time to take a break from the slopes, there is plenty of fun to be had with special events and festivals going on at almost all times. Check the schedule to see what’s happening when you’re planning on vacationing here or plan your vacation around one of the big events. Vail Family Holidaze, for example, is the perfect time to come visit in December, featuring musical ice shows, concerts, games, and festivities all geared for kid-friendly experiences and family fun.

Where to Stay

With so many excellent accommodation options it can be difficult to decide where to stay. You’ve got a range of lodging options available, from hotels to condos to cabins, short term to long term, budget to mid-range to luxury. There are however, a few options that are more suited to family experiences. Condos are always a good idea for family vacations, with the whole home-away-from-home scenario available to make your own meals and have a multi-bedroom living unit where everyone can stay together. When it comes to resorts, there are two main draws known for providing the best family friendly experience.
