As its loyal visitors and residents will tell you, Avon is the perfect place to have a fun winter vacation with the family or a peaceful summer getaway in the mountains.

In the winter, snowy Avon is a great place for winter sports of every type, including cross-country and alpine skiing, snowboarding, ice-skating, and snowshoeing. While you are here, hit the slopes at nearby Beaver Creek Resort, which runs a free shuttle into Avon or play ice hockey on Avon's Nottingham Lake in the town's park. Christmas festivities can also be particularly attractive in the Vail Valley, with wonderful community activities like winter art walks and gingerbread house building.
In the summer, Avon is a great jumping off point for adventures around the Rocky Mountains. Hiking, mountain biking, and fishing in the Rockies are some of the most popular activities. Golfers also visit the area to play on one of 17 championship courses in the Vail Valley. Visit during the Fourth of July holidays to see the biggest fireworks display in the state. If you can't make it for Independence Day, check out one of Vail's numerous music and art festivals, ongoing throughout the summer months.
