Beaver Creek itself is quite the attraction. The mountain is set right in the heart of the Rocky Mountains with views of the Gore Range and New York Mountain. There is so much to do right in Beaver Creek: biking, hiking, skating, snowboarding, skiing and running. Once the wild flowers start blooming, usually in July, getting out is imperative. A true Beaver Creek attraction is the chondola (combination chair lift and gondola) up to Spruce Saddle and the trek back down. Or challenge yourself to hike up and down. The views and the flowers are well worth the journey.
Beyond physical activities, there are camps and museums perfect for kids. The Vilar Performing Arts Center, a very popular Beaver Creek attraction, brings a huge variety of talent in each year.
Get out of town to explore more the Vail Valley and see attractions you’ve only read about. There are state parks, campgrounds, lakes and museums to visit. Rent standup paddleboards and paddle slowly around a mountain lake. You’ll find tons of parks where children can play, and there’s even a couple of rodeos throughout the summer. The bucking bronco action never fails to stun.
Other Kinds of Beaver Creek Attractions
The galleries and jewelers are true Beaver Creek attractions. Take the time to window shop around Beaver Creek Village and snap photos at the many playful bronze statutes. At the far end of the village, kids will love splashing in the fountain, or head below the covered bridge and wade around in the crystal clear mountain stream.
Beaver Creek is not short on attractions. Just look around and there’s something fun and interesting to do or places to visit.
