Charming, pedestrian friendly Vail Village has everything you could need or want right at your fingertips. The heart of Vail is located at the base of the ski mountain, home to the new Gondola One, and has undergone a great transformation with the renovation and construction of dozens of properties. The Village, with its heated cobblestone streets and quaint European architecture, invites you to discover world-class fine dining, art galleries, local boutiques and luxury retail. In addition to the tremendous variety of shopping and dining, Vail Village hosts sporting and cultural events, festivals, and concerts year-round including the Ski Classic, the Burton US Open, Gourmet on the Gore, Saturday Summer Markets, Bravo! Vail Valley Music Festival, Vail International Dance Festival and a free winter street, and summer outdoor concert series at the stunning Ford Ampitheater.
