Offered every Tuesday and Thursday, the history walking tours pack a hearty amount of information into a 60 minute stroll around town. At only $5 per person, this experience is a bargain! Family-friendly and engaging, these tours bring Vail's colorful history to life. You'll learn unique stories from the past as well as interesting facts about famous local landmarks.
To make your reservation, call (970) 476-1876.
If you enjoy your walking tour and want to learn more, then you should check out Vail's annual Through the Lens series. For the 2020-2021 season, these presentations will be virtual (and free!), but that doesn't mean that they're any less of a fantastic resource for learning about Vail and the surrounding areas! The next event will be on March 3, 2021 at 3 PM. Hosted by Trent Bush, this talk is titled Snowboarding: Roots of a Movement. If you can't tune into this event, check out the other events as they're posted online. Don't fret: all of this year's Through the Lens events will be posted to youtube, so you can watch them at your convenience!
