I love going to Vail, CO. I am not wealthy as most people who are in Vail but I love the fresh air and the laid back feeling. I enjoy hiking around there and feeling safe and free. Since I have family in that area it makes it all the more enjoyable.

The one negative think I can think of about Vail, Co. is the cost of things. Weather it be food, loging or gas it is well above the national average. I try to plan ahead and pack some food the the financial impact will be small.

I have never seen any crime in Vail. It is pretty expensive, so the schools are not cheap or easy to get into, but the actual learning programs are great.

The mountain is absolutely perfect. It has great skiing and biking terrain, the town at the base of the mountain is fun and has a lot to do. Great place to visit any time of the year.
