When people vacation in Vail, they generally expect to be in ‘Vail Village’. Lionshead is just to the west of Vail Village and is certainly a big part of Vail. Recent years has provided vast renovation in the area and it now has great shopping and dining. If, however, you long for the shopping and dining in Vail Village, you can easily get there by the Town of Vail free bus once you are in the Lions head area.
From this home, you would probably want to take a taxi into Lionshead or drive your car into the area and park in the Lionshead parking deck. From there, it is easy to walk around for dining and shopping – not to mention walking to the ski slopes. Look here for How to Choose Where I Want to Stay this Year.
