What else to do in Vail this weekend
August 31, 2018
There's plenty to do in the Vail Valley this weekend between the Jazz Party, Gourmet on Gore and Beaver Creek's Oktoberfest—but if those aren't your cup of tea (or your mug of beer, if you will), here are other fun activities to enjoy in the Vail Valley this weekend:
CineBistro at Solaris
With some popular movies currently playing, cozying up and catching a flick is never out of the question. CineBistro at Solaris offers patrons the opportunity to grab a bite before, during or after their movie, as well as a drink or two. The best part: they'll validate your parking.
Betty Ford Alpine Gardens
Take a leisurely stroll through one of their many beautiful gardens, hike up the Gore Range or check out their "H20 = Life" exhibit to learn about the water ways that run through the area. Offering family fun for all ages, the Betty Ford Alpine Gardens offers a multi-media experience with their Alpine Wildflower Finder App and searchable plant database.
Colorado Ski & Snowboard Museum Hall of Fame

Fuzzywig's Candy Factory
Located in Vail Village, this wacky adventure of a store is certain to satisfy even the biggest sweet tooth. The explosively colorful joint also offers over 400 varieties of candies, in addition to specialty toys.
Offering zipline tours, adventure courses, summer tubing and so much more, Epic Discovery is perched on Vail Mountain in Lionshead and requires a gondola ride to the top. Everyone can engage in the fun activities then grab a bite—and a drink—at one of their three restaurants.
