Vail

Trip Planner USA  /  Colorado  /  Vail

Western White House of President Gerald Ford

Originally built as a base for Vail Ski Resort, the town of Vail has blossomed into its own destination, but still has less than 6,000 permanent residents. The resort plays a big role in the village's economy and tourist industry; this is no surprise, with 21 square km (5,289 acres) of skiable area and almost 200 ski trails. The resort attracts many big-name celebrities, and upscale condos fill the town to house these guests. Visitors look forward to film and dance festivals in the town's center--it exudes European charm with latticed balconies and Austrian-style log buildings. "Bravo! Vail" is a festival of internationally recognized orchestras that visits the area annually. Unlike most towns that expand out from a city center, the village has spread into a long, narrow configuration along Interstate 70, because it's wedged at the base of the mountain. Vail is in Colorado (CO). Plan your trip to Vail and other United States destinations using our handy United States online sightseeing planner .
