Quirky, Comfortable Minturn

You’ve got to love a town where you can stroll down Main Street in your slippers, enroute for your first cup of coffee.

That’s Minturn. Relaxed. Comfortable. Friendly.

This cool little enclave first came on the scene during Eagle County’s mining boom in the late 1800s and was essentially a railroad division point. Located just off I-70 five minutes down valley from Vail, the town has a traditional main drag dotted with shops, casual restaurants and galleries. Nestled aside the Eagle River, the historic homes, quaint shops and family atmosphere help retain the old time charm.

If you are looking for an alternative to the high-style and glitz of Vail Village or Beaver Creek, settle in to Minturn. Here’s a sampling of what you’ll find:
