This was our 4th mini trip to Vail (third with kids) and its quickly become one of our favorite long weekend getaways!
We were hoping to bring our bikes, but the forecast showed a lot of snow so we decided to skip it, and snow we got! Which ended up being perfect and So cozy!
Our kids are such little fish that if water is available to them, they just want to swim. Doesnt matter what the temperature is. And with the perfectly cozy, heated outdoor pool my kids would have been thrilled if we never left the hotel! But every time we go to Vail we Have to make the drive to Glenwood Springs for the day (one of my favorite towns ever) to soak in the hot springs.
Is there Anything cozier then swimming in a heated pool while its snowing, next to a fire going? I think not! (oh and we had hot chocolate waiting for us when we got out too, which took it to a whole other level of coziness if you ask our kids!)
The day we went to Glenwood was the sunnies day of our whole trip, which was perfect. Sunshine, cool crisp mountain air plus hot springs are basically my favorite things ever. Add in THE best burger place in the world (seriously, I would drive the 3.5 hours just to eat there, and its like our 5th-6th time going since we discovered it a few years ago. It Never disappoints. They have a whole dipping sauce menu! I mean, Sold right there!
Every time we go to Glenwood Springs, we go the hot springs for a few hours in the morning, dry up then walk across the bridge and eat at Grind, have a long lunch, walk around the shops, maybe (okay always) get some ice cream then back to the hot springs. Seriously makes for such an amazing day!
I had THE most amazing afternoon one of the days we were there with a facial, and hanging in the sauna/steam room. If you are in Vail, make sure you check out Aria Spa, its fantastic!
Basically the perfect weekend long weekend in Vail! We didn’t do a a ton besides swim, lounge in the hot tub, walk around town, eat at some delicious restaurants, basically all of my favorite things. PS Aren’t these backpacks that Egg Kids sent us? They are the perfect weekend getaway bags!
Cant wait for our next Mountain getaway! Any one with fun spring break plans? We are always last minute, and in the middle of planning ours right now! Cant believe its less then a month away!
PS I’ll be blogging about these amazing bags soon! I was sent the purple one years ago (and blogged about it on my old blog) and was sent this little black one recently and so in love with both! The purple one has seen a lot of trips, and has held up perfectly after all these years!
