Take some advice from the Kids are a Trip blog on her summer in Vail with teens:
There are so many things to do in Vail, it’s hard to know where to begin. We recommend heading for Vail Village, where you can walk along the pedestrian mall or hike along the Vail Recreation Path next to Gore Creek. The villages are completely contained and free from traffic, so kids of all ages can freely roam around. It’s a place where you feel comfortable letting teens explore on their own, and have a bit of freedom.
In Vail Village, there are several options for teens. If your teens love shopping, there are an endless number of shops, from clothing to art galleries. There’s an ice cream shop called Sundae, and a candy shop too (Fuzziwig’s Candy Factory next to the children’s fountain). CinéBistro has the latest movies, and even a bowling alley, bol, which offers food and bowling. Solaris Plaza (where bol is located), has a large grass area for games of corn hole (rent equipment next to bol, and hosts concerts during the week. Hanging out in the village is only the beginning of Vail summer fun.
