4 Reasons to Visit Vail This Summer
I know I love my state, and it makes sense that I love getting up into the mountains. This weekend, I’m spending some time in Vail, and I thought it would be great to highlight some of reasons to visit!
#1. The Food
Amen for mountain food towns! The sushi presentation that I had last night at Matsuhisa was incredible! Toro, which is the amazing fatty underbelly of the tuna, is pretty much heaven on earth. And if you’re like me, we’ll go heavy in the wasabi. If the kids are headed elsewhere with their Adventure Nanny, check out the Minturn Country Club. There is an on-site magician and kids love grilling the steaks themselves!
#2. The Slopes! No, Seriously…
I love a great hike as much as the next Coloradoan, but you can always take the short cut and ride the ski lift up vail mountain and then hike leisurely back down. This is a great option for families. The Vail Nature Center has some amazing programs as well.
The discounts during the summer are fantastic. I know it’s probably bizarre to try on a ski jacket or winter clothing in June, but it’s completely worth it. Gear up the growing kids for next season!
#4. The Atmosphere
Mountain towns in the summer are slow and easy like Sunday morning. Vail city center is very walker-friendly, and taking an evening stroll after your amazing dinner is perfection. So take a break from the city, and visit the mountain towns during the summer.
