When you step into Vail, you’re entering a gentler time where life is more relaxed, unhurried and light. Vail Village is the heart of this magical place, where meandering pedestrian streets and Bavarian-inspired architecture beckon you.
Vail Mountain has two main villages: Lionshead Village and the renowned Vail Village. The two hot spots are connected by a 10-15 short walk or an easy free bus with beautiful mountain views. East Vail, West Vail, and Cascade Village are also not far from the lively Vail Village.
Parking in the Vail Valley is not as difficult as one may think. For visiting Vail Village or Lionshead, park at one of three parking structures: Vail Village, Lionshead, or Red Sandstone. Any questions? Be sure to ask the Vail Welcome Center.
