When thinking about summer getaways, it often seems impossible to find a destination that offers adventures and activities to thrill each member of our families. Vail Resorts has come up with an ingenious solution, drawing on the majestic national parks and forests of the West to transform their village at Keystone Mountain into a family base from which daily adventure trips take place. Set in Colorado's Rocky Mountains, the Epic Summer Family Adventure offers families an action-packed getaway with four or seven-day itineraries.
Each day your family has an exciting fun-packed day ahead, from hiking up cool mountain trails, going white water rafting, zip lining, trail horseback riding, exploring National Parks, and adventure biking to attending a real cowboy campfire dinner under the stars. Best yet, all of the details have been taken care of for you, from transportation to guides to picnic lunches, adding up to the ultimate outdoor family experience. Moreover, back at home base other options await: Dad can hit the golf course while we Moms sneak off for some wondrous spa services.
With everything from meals to outdoor trips covered, all you have to do is show up with sneakers, a bathing suit, and a sense of adventure! Plus, the all-inclusive pricing proves surprisingly affordable. What better way to create lifelong memories than a vacation where the only thing you have to think about is how much fun you're having.
These are great prices for a vacation for four! The guides are knowledgeable and experienced, from what I read about them on the site. What I like most is that there are tons of activities for the kids so the adults can have alone time! Colorado is a gorgeous state from the pictures I've seen, as I have never been there. I'd love to go sometime, and visit my brother and his family in Colorado Springs, if I were to take a trip to Epic Summer!
