vail_village_scene-fullThere are few places better than a quiet mountain town to celebrate Christmas with family and friends. The Vail area looks like it was taken right out of a storybook. Decorated with lights and covered in snow, Vail definitely not a bad place to take an evening stroll! If you are lucky enough to spend Christmas in Vail, we have a few suggestions for you.

There are plenty of activities to take part in, both right in Vail and the surrounding towns. The Vail Holidaze takes place Dec. 18-21 and has plenty of holiday events for the entire family to enjoy. Whether it is visiting with Santa or watching the tree lighting ceremony, there is more than enough to spread some holiday cheer!

A winter sleigh ride is another great way to spend the holidays with your family. 4 Eagle Ranch┬álocated in Wolcott, CO offers a variety of sleigh ride packages. For their dinner sleigh ride when you arrive at the ranch you can enjoy a warm drink and a bowl of their award winning chili in an 1800’s cabin. After this you will take a horse drawn sleigh ride under the star-lit sky and return to a delicious buffet. If you still have room after the buffet head outside and roast a marshmallow over the fire!
