Traditional charm in sleepy Eagle

The county seat of Eagle County, Eagle is a naturally beautiful town renowned for its epic trails system. If you’ve booked an Eagle vacation rental, expect the charm of an old-school town and the beauty of nature to envelope you. In other words, you may not want to leave. People come to Eagle to escape the hustle and bustle. It’s about 30 miles outside Vail, after all, which means it’s the perfect spot to visit if you want to be near the skiing opps without all the noise.

Things to do

In the past and on the gardens

The Eagle County Historical Society Museum at Chambers Park has everything you need to learn about the area’s fascinating past—it’s packed with exhibits and artifacts. You also can’t visit Eagle without checking out Brush Creek Park Community Gardens, where plant life grows in this region despite challenging growing conditions. Remarkably, the plots bloom at different times of the year, and coming to this area makes for some excellent photo opps. There’s a pavilion on the grounds here, too.

Activities

Something for everyone in Eagle

If you’ve booked an Eagle vacation rental, it’s a fair bet that you love the great outdoors. Go whitewater rafting, catch a rodeo, or take a walk along a lengthy trail. Enjoy a county fair and mingle with the locals—you’ll quickly feel right at home. There are several intimate boutiques scattered about town if you need to indulge your inner shopaholic. Otherwise, you would be remiss not to visit one of the many parks in town and set up a picnic on the lush grounds. It’s the ideal spot for a family, and as the sun sets over Eagle Town Park you can enjoy the birds as they soar overhead.

Weather

Cold weather, snow, and sunshine

Love the cold? Renting an Eagle vacation rental is a pretty good idea then. A low of 9 degrees is normal in January, with an average snowfall of about 53 inches. While the snow does fall frequently, the sun shines just as brightly over 240 days throughout the year. Rain is a bit less common in Eagle, with major precipitation falling at least 50 days of the year. Summertime isn't especially hot, with highs that reach no more than 78 degrees — a dream for those who crave a brisk air over more balmier weather.

Natural features

In the Eagle River valley

Situated in the valley of the Eagle River, which flows from the Colorado River, Eagle extends along the Brush Creek valley. This rural mountain region is home to a major trail system, all of which are ideal for hiking, running, strolling, and mountain biking. Spying wildlife is normal here—in fact, you'd be hard pressed not to leave your Eagle vacation rental without spotting a deer, or even maybe a mountain lion or a bear. It’s a biodiverse region filled with meadows, forests, and woodlands. Everywhere you turn, you’ll spot snow-capped peaks.
