A Glimpse of Vail

I, Zeb the Duck, and Soapy Smith Duck went to Vail. This fantastic ski resort is about 100 miles west of Denver on I-70. We go there for festivals and sometimes just for lunch. We want to show you a few things that make Vail a great destination. You will find great shopping, including this nice jewelry store.

The higher altitude and many daily hours of sunshine enhance the vivid colors. These skiers seem to be having fun.

Many of Vail’s streets are pedestrian only, so these Pedi cabs are very convenient.

A very nice addition to the town. Another way to get around town is the free downtown buses.

You will want to visit both Vail Village and Lionshead. After so much walking and shopping, it may be time for a drink and light snack. Yeti’s Grind looks like just the spot to visit.
