If you haven’t heard the buzz, the 2013 Vail Rocks hiking experience, created by Love Hope Strength, is tomorrow. It’s a day full of hiking, acoustic performances, and a rock show in the evening. The event’s goal is to raise money for cancer treatment centers and raise money for other centers around the country with their mission, “Saving lives one concert at a time.”
Because we’re excited for this event, we put together of a list of things you should do while you’re up in Vail. Be a part of the hike on Saturday, but stay the night and enjoy the sunny weather on Sunday. Here’s your guide.
Where to stay:
The Lodge at Vail, 174 Gore Creek Drive
After a long day of hiking, what better way to end the night by relaxing at one of Vail’s best resorts? Located at the base of Vail Mountain, The Lodge at Vail is a greta way to relax after the hike for Vail Rocks. Visit the spa, relax in your room, or head out for a rafting trip, but we suggest The Lodge at Vail to end the weekend right.
Summer rates start at $203.15
