Vail, Colorado is a magical place to live. The beauty of Vail is the first outstanding attraction of this small town that will grab a visitor's attention. To top it off, this small village is a warm and friendly place to live with a diverse cross-section of America. The variety of visitors from all over the world makes Vail an exciting place to vacation. There are so many activities to do year round and there is something for everyone. I've lived here five months and feel as though this is home for me. If the town could be a bit more affordable (housing and food), then Vail would be the perfect place to live for many who dream of living in such a magnificent area of our great nation.

If you enjoy the outdoors, whether it's skiing, snowboarding, hiking, biking, rafting, golfing, and want to live in the mountains and have access to fine dining and entertainment, Vail and the surrounding area is a great option.
I would like to see Vail become more welcoming and accepting of younger crowds. Also, some different variety in the food atmosphere would be appreciated. The Ford Park is wonderful and the Village is very well-kept.
