Vail Village Area
Game Creek Club is idyllic Vail. Where else can you dine on top of a private mountain? Game Creek rests on the top of Eagles Nest and is only accessible by the Eagle Bahn gondola and a large snowcat. The ride isn’t the only impressive part of the experience—the restaurant boasts chef-crafted, five-course tasting meals that are continually evolving.
Betty Ford Alpine Gardens
Betty Ford Alpine Gardens is the world’s highest botanical garden. It features five different gardens along with an education center. The gardens truly have a little bit of something for everyone to enjoy.
Bravo! Vail is an annual summer concert series in the heart of our valley. The series regularly includes orchestra concerts that echo throughout the hills of Vail Mountain. If you’re in town for the Fourth of July, don’t miss out on the Dallas Symphony Orchestra’s patriotic performance.
Beaver Creek Area
The Ritz-Carlton’s Wyld is the place to grab a drink and bite after a day on the slopes. Dress to the nines and take your date to the elegantly rustic dining room or head straight from the mountain and congregate around the fire pit to the sounds of live music.
Beano’s Cabin brings farm-to-table to a whole other level. Travel to the secluded Beaver Creek cabin by horseback or the complimentary shuttle. Sit down in your private oasis surrounded by rolling hills. Enjoy a chef-crafted, five-course dinner, and watch in awe as the open kitchen prepares your dish right in front of your eyes. The restaurant even farms its herbs and veggies right outside the doors.
Come back to center at Allegria Spa. The all-inclusive spa offers everything from massage to body treatments to skincare to salon services. They even provide a full gym for those looking to break a sweat.
Vail Brewing Company
It doesn’t get much more authentic than Vail Brewing Company. While the friendly brew company prides itself on maintaining its roots, it’s no stranger to worldly recognition. Vail Brewing boasts awards from the World Beer Cup, North American Brewers Association, and, of course, the Best of Vail.
EagleVail Golf Club
EagleVail Golf Club is an 18-hole, championship course designed by Devlin/Von Hagge. It’s hugged by the Rocky Mountains and provides an opportunity to challenge scratch players and entertain the novice.
If you’re in the mood for a no-frills, artisan sandwich shop and craft spirit restaurant, look no further than The Craftsman. Order at the counter and pull up a seat for a wholesome dining experience the whole family can enjoy.
Edwards Corner Farmers Market
Vail offers a variety of farmers markets, and Edwards Corner Farmers Market is one of the finest. Arrive early on Saturday mornings to snatch up fresh brown eggs, lamb, beef, pork, organic fruits and veggies, and freshly made specialties.
