Exchange from
59 days to 24 hours
before check-in with
Vail, Avon, and
Beaver Creek, Colorado
In the season between winter-sports frenzy
and summer buzz, Vail Valley is anything but
dormant. As wildflowers burst forth and the
outdoors awaken, mountains, rivers, and forests
beg to be traversed.
What to do:
Go outside! Lace up your
hiking boots, hop on a mountain bike, grab a
paddle, or drift above it all in a hot-air balloon.
And be sure to delve into the culinary scene,
sampling world-class restaurants and a range
of local wines.
Where to do it:
Get an overview of the
area’s natural offerings at the 7-acre Vail Nature
Center, which hosts birding excursions, wild-
flower walks, stargazing events, full-day and
family hikes — even beaver pond tours. Pedal
along Avon’s paved Eagle Valley Trail, or con-
quer the off-road Haymaker Trail in the town of
Eagle, a haven for mountain bikers.
Why go now:
As the ski crowds depart
and before the summer swarms arrive, Vail,
Avon, and Beaver Creek offer a quieter vibe.
But there’s always plenty of outdoor action, as
well as a calendar of events and festivities.
Insider’s tip:
Epic Discovery,
which opened in summer 2016, is
an adventure park that’s sure to get
adrenaline pumping, with zip lines,
ropes courses, tubing, and an alpine
coaster that glides 3,400 feet down
Vail Mountain. A scenic gondola ride
is tamer, but equally breathtaking.

Propelled by a passion for food, music, dance,
art, and life, Buenos Aires delivers a one-of-
a-kind urban experience best discovered by
strolling its storied neighborhoods and playing
a participatory role.
What to do:
Learn to tango, of course, or
at least watch the
(Buenos Aires resi-
dents) take to the dance floor. Get to know the
colorful metropolis and its hidden enclaves. And
meat lovers should not pass up an opportunity
to dig into a sumptuous dinner showcasing
choice cuts of Argentine beef.
Where to do it:
San Telmo, the city’s
oldest neighborhood, envelops many not-to-
be-missed sights that are best seen on foot.
Stumble across
studios where tango
dances are held. (Plaza Dorrego draws crowds
on Sunday night.) Browse Mercado de San
Telmo, spilling with local produce, or wander the
Feria de San Telmo, where craft stalls and street
entertainers distract. Navigate Cementerio de la
Recoleta, a maze of tombs and mausoleums
housing the remains of some of the country’s
most noted citizens.
Why go now:
It’s autumn in Buenos Aires,
one of the prettiest times of year, and perfect
weather for getting out and exploring the city
in comfort.
Insider’s tip:
Guided walking tours are
among the best ways to appreciate Buenos
Aires’ urban art scene. Graffitimundo is a non-
profit organization that offers group and private
expeditions to take in street art, murals, and
graffiti creations. Tours last two or three hours
and are led in English.
