People flock to the Clark Family Orchards tent at the Vail's Farmers Market every Sunday for their incredible peaches and produce. We went to their orchard in Palisade to find out more about the family - who have been growing peaches in Palisade for 6 consecutive generations - as well as what it takes to get the peach from the tree to Vail.
Whether you and the family are here for a few days or the whole summer, your kids will love the Day Camps in Vail! With specialized classes for preschoolers to 13-year-olds, there's something for every kid. http://www.vailrec.com/youth-activiti...
Vail, Colorado's iconic ski runs become a cross country and down hill mountain biker's dream in summer. Grand Traverse Trail is the perfect trail for Vail winter lovers curious to see what their favorite views look like in summer - nothing like riding through the forest only to have the trail open up to green, rolling slopes with endless views of Vail's Back Bowls and Mount of the Holy Cross.
