Vail Colorado Nature Center

Vail Colorado, well known for the great skiing in the winter offers a great vacation in the summer sometime with much lower prices. There are great golf courses in the area, challenging hiking and mountain biking trails and summer events.

Since June, regular wild flower walks in the area have been available with the folks at the Vail Nature Center. Every Monday, Wednesday and Friday from June 26th through August 18th take a hike. Wildflowers abound in the summer high country and the leisurely one-hour walk will help you identify many of the flowers you see on your hikes in the area.

If beavers are more your idea of fun and you would like to see them at work then join the Nature Center in the evenings on Tuesdays and Wednesdays at dusk to lean about this industrial animal. Then, after the beaver hunt (Tuesdays only) you can enjoy toasted marshmallows and stories of woodland adventure by a warm campfire. Stroll along trails looking for owls and other night creatures and then head back to the camp for s’mores and story telling.

Book your trip with a stay in a Vail vacation home rental so that you can come and go as you please and feel like you have a home away from home.
