Rocky Mountain Condos Less Than 10 Miles from Vail
Before the pioneers moved in, the land surrounding Falcon Point Resort was inhabited in the warmer months by Utes, who returned to the Vail Valley each summer to hunt elk and buffalo in the Rocky Mountains. Nowadays, the trend is reversed: most travelers flock to Colorado in the winter. But the Utes were onto something. The Rocky Mountains have a host of summertime attractions, including hiking, fishing, and boating. Falcon Point Resort offers a collection of studio, one-, and two-bedroom condos in the heart of the action, amid forested peaks and Nottingham Park.
The resort's condos have all the comforts of home, including kitchens complete with refrigerators and dishwashers. One- and two-bedroom condos feature separate dining areas and spacious living rooms. Many local restaurants are within walking distance, and so is a large grocery store where you can stock up on provisions to prepare your own meals. Barbecue grills are located next to the resort's swimming pool—an ideal spot for a cookout.
Avon, Colorado: Small Mountain Village in the Vail Valley
The small mountain town of Avon is located in the Colorado wilderness about 100 miles west of Denver. Bordering Falcon Point Resort to the north is Harry A. Nottingham Park, where waterside trails make a scenic setting for hiking and mountain biking. There’s no swimming allowed in the lake, but that doesn't keep paddleboaters and fishers from taking to the waters. The posh mountain village of Vail lies 8 miles to the west. In this Bavarian-style hot spot, you'll find fine-dining restaurants and nightlife ranging from DJ-run clubs to cozy taverns with extensive beer collections.
