Off season in the Vail Valley is a quieter time of year. Temperatures are cooling (especially at night), leaves are falling, and restaurants are featuring dining deals.
A perfect example of such: Vail Beaver Creek Restaurant Week kicks off Friday, September 28, and runs through October 7. Now's the perfect time to head up to the mountains, enjoy autumn colors and dine out at Vail Valley's fine restaurants for less. Dining specials and pre fixe menus will be offered at $20.18 per person. Click here to learn more!
Weather this week is a mix of sunshine and clouds, with rain currently in the forecast for much of next week (though that could change between now and then). Temperature highs will hover in the 60s and 70s. Click here for the 10-day forecast.
With that in mind, here are my top picks for Vail Valley This Week.
