Drinks & Nightlife

Stop in for aprés. Drink and eat on their large deck looking out at the base of the Eagle Bahn gondola. No-frills bar with a great selection on tap and reasonably-priced food.

Rustic and relaxed tavern where the majority of the menu is prepared over an open and live wood fire. First class dining experience with a more casual vibe.

Top-rated restaurant in Colorado (according to Zagat). The menu changes with the seasons and is creative American cuisine.

Located inside the Vail Mountain Lodge and Spa, Terra Bistro has a unique menu, where about 90% of the ingredients are organic. I recommend going for their small and medium plates menus - there are lots of great items on there, but some of my faves are the slider, the chorizo-stuffed dates, grilled cheese fingers, and the gnocchi with lamb ragout. The Coconut dessert is also amazing, and highly recommended if you're a coconut person like me. Dave behind the bar is a cool guy, too.

Located in the Sebastian, Leonara is primarily a tapas restaurant, with excellent small plates that you can keep all to yourself or order one of everything and share with your table. They do have a menu of full-size entrees, too, but the star of their menu is the tapas. Some of my favorites are the pulpo "al ajillo", brussels sprouts, Spanish cheeses, and truffle fries. The restaurant is cozy, and is quite popular, so be sure to make reservations.

The closest restaurant to the condo; it's a quick ~5 minute walk down the street. A hole in the wall type of place, but they have great prices, a few beers on tap, and the food is pretty good. They deliver, too, if you don't feel like going out.

This is the closest bus stop to my condo. It's on the Sandstone line, which is free. Schedules change with the season, and can be found on the Town of Vail's website, but on average the bus runs every 30 minutes from early morning to late at night.

Entertainment & Activities

Adventure Ridge at Vail Resort is a great spot for both summer and winter activities: zipline/canopy tour, mountain coaster, disc golf, snow tubing, etc. There's lots of great stuff to keep you busy if mountain biking, hiking, or skiing aren't quite your thing.
