Vail has long been one of our favorite mountain towns and September is my favorite month to visit the mountains. I looked back and found that we went to vail in September pretty much every year since the kids were born.
This we started with a visit to a new (to us) playground after the drive up.
Slides and Sunshine had a great post on all the best playgrounds in Vail
Humphry came with us and rode most of the day in the stroller.
People always think it’s funny that Humphry gets a lift.
It was Oktoberfest so we grabbed some German food and enjoyed Polka music.
Obviously we had to find some ice cream for the kids and coffee for the adults.
The Fours Seasons Bears are always a great photo op!
There are a couple of fountains that kids can get into to play.
I was glad we had a change of clothes for the kids.
There is also lots of great shopping to be done in Vail Village, especially if you have a few thousand dollars you want to spend on some boots.
We had to make time for the Pirate Ship Park.
The leaves were just starting to turn and the drive was beautiful so if you are local now is a great time to get up into the hight country!
Where is your favorite place to travel to in the fall?
