Just when you start to feel that sadness that summer is officially over, the fall colors creep in and make it all better. The amazing oranges, red, and yellows speak for themselves, but you can up the awesome and check them out from a local Jeep Tour or a train ride from Leadville, CO. Vail is lucky enough to be part of a top 5 Colorado Scenic Byway, which is another great reason to hop in the car with the family and enjoy the views!

Grab your jersey and rest up your vocal cords because football season has started! All around the Vail Valley you can find energetic spots to watch your favorite team and enjoy the game day specials that might help soften the blow if the game does not go your way. The Vail Daily newspaper is a great reference for game day deals every Saturday and Sunday.
