Most people think of Colorado as a place to visit in the winter. And, while the skiing and boarding can’t be beat, the summer is equally as exciting. There are countless things to do in Colorado in the summer, whether it be hiking, biking, whitewater rafting, or simply grabbing a beer and sitting on a patio. There are many Vail summer activities – here is an overview of a few of our favorites, so you can plan your summer of fun!
Give Fly Fishing a Try
Fly fishing is one of the best ways to enjoy the beauty of Colorado summers. The rivers and creeks are full of fish, and it takes skill and focus, which allows your mind to relax. And, you don’t have to try it for the first time alone: There are many outfitters that provide instructions and guidance. We recommend Gore Creek Fly Fisherman, the oldest and most prominent fly fishing provider for over 35 years in Vail. And, when you book a trip with a coupon from our site, you can save 10% on any guided trip.
Go for a Hike
There are a myriad of trails in and around Vail and Beaver Creek. In fact, there are so many, you’ll have a tough time choosing the right one! Keep in mind that there are many options for all different hiking levels. You can hike the ski and snowboard runs on Vail Mountain, and get a glimpse of the places you spent during the winter. Or, you can branch out and try hiking in the National Forest Service land surrounding Vail, including Bighorn Creek, Pitkin Creek, Trappers Run, or Lost Lake. Get a list of trails in Vail, and choose the best one for you and your friends and family.
