August is here! And that means summer fun is continuing full force around the Vail Valley. A lot of live music is on tap this weekend and into next week, along with the Beaver Creek Art Festival. Read on to learn more.
Weather this weekend is perfect for outdoor fun; temperatures will hover in the 70s and 80s, with some thunderstorms predicted through the weekend. Click here for the 10-day forecast.
I love this time of year because it's still summer weather, but temperatures are hopefully starting to cool. I'm a cold-weather gal, so I'm happiest in a sweater and hat.
With that in mind, here are my top picks for Vail Valley This Week.
