Sage and Amy are the best! Great coffee, yummy food and the best place to eavesdrop and hear the local 411. Favorite sandwich is The Mile.

Headquarters for this festival and farmers market staple with a cult following in Colorado. The "quicky" is essentially a gyro, but made with more love. Daily specials in season.

The legend and pretty much the last real ski bar left in Vail. Ski the Mile, have a margarita with a free bowl of chips and salsa next to the wood fire and feel like a local.

Not the only, but the best reason to visit Red Cliff, the tiny old mining town and former county seat for Eagle County (long ago). Best fish tacos around.

This is one of our personal favorite restaurants and has stood the test of time. Always impeccable service and totally delicious food. Come off the mountain for lunch here and you won't be disappointed. Not inexpensive, but worth it!

A real Colorado dining experience! Snowshoe or x-country ski on mostly flat terrain just over a mile to this backcountry yurt for a gourmet meal in an unforgettable setting. If you are lucky to have a clear sky you will see the universe (or at least the milky way)!

The original loaded joe's and still the largest. They usually have a theme on week nights (karaoke, trivia, etc.) and so this is a local's hangout. Skip Starbucks and spend locally on much better coffee.

Friends don't let friends drink Starbucks(!) so walk past it in Vail, cross the covered bridge and you will find Joe's downstairs on your right. Much better coffee and a local's favorite. Support our local community and get your java at Joe's!

Family owned authentic mexican restaurant. Great menu, but also ask for specials that are often not listed. If they have it, try the red posole - oh, my, my, yum! Also have Salvadorian pupusas that are delish and horchata to wash it all down!

You can reserve specific seats in advance at this theater next to the ice rink in vail. You can also order dinner and cocktails to eat while watching your movie. Seats are huge and comfortable. You'll pay a little more, but the experience and ability to walk around vail before/after is worth it. Park at solaris and bring in your parking stub for validation = free parking.

If you think Minturn is funky then you must visit Leadville. About a 30 min drive south will bring you to the highest incorporated city in the US (10,200 ft) and a city that was once the riches mining district in the world. The mining museum brings that history into focus, but the city is also fun to explore as is the mining district just east of town on 7th and 5th streets.

Parks & Nature

Walking Mountains is a natural science education facility open to the public and is a must see especially if you have kids. Right next to downtown Avon, but tucked away in a quiet valley. A LEED Platinum certified facility ofering a Nature center to learn about local flora, fauna, geology, etc. and programs for kids and adults. Nice selection of nature trails for all abilities and they offer off site excursions as well.

Sightseeing

A beautiful mountain lake surrounded by the Gore Range mountains and well worth the drive on the dirt road to reach such a special place. The ranch features many activities such as horseback riding, stand up paddle boarding, canoeing, hiking and they have a nice little restaurant to feed all hungry adventurers.

Drinks & Nightlife

Great microbrewery just down the road from Minturn. They usually have many brew selections and also have happy leaf Kombucha on tap! No food service, but there is a great taco truck usually parked just outside. They also often have great live music.

Oh how we love this place! This is a place for sophisticated conversation with friends. It is a tiny (by vail standards) wine bar with an inventive and top notch selection. Trust your bartender here and let him or her blow you away. You will probably see things on the menu you've never seen. Try them. Your horizons will be expanded....
