Destination guide

Nothing but blue skies do I see

To visit Vail is to experience the very best of Arizona. It’s a nature lover’s paradise, all fluffy white clouds, clear blue skies, and miles of unspoiled plains and adventurous trails. Beautiful weather alone makes Vail a special place to visit, but it's the activities here that are especially versatile. Whether you’re a hiking enthusiast, a wine lover, or even a light sports enthusiast, you’ll find every reason to book a Vail vacation rental and make yourself comfortable—if not for a week, then at least a relaxed weekend that offers a serious change of pace.

Things to do

Wine with a side of history

You’d be hard pressed not to find something enjoyable to do outside. There are plenty of fun adventures to enjoy indoors, too, including a visit to the Charron Vineyards and Winery, one of the oldest in the state. Perhaps the area’s most beloved attraction is Colossal Cave—it’s always a cool 70 degrees inside, and families can enjoy guided tours and even enjoy dinner. Love history? Escape your Vail vacation rental and soak up a hint of history in Rancho del Lago. It’s home to a stone retaining wall, a bridge, and a small set of stairs, the only remaining remnants of the community developed in the 1890s.


Take to the open road…or a dark cave

After you’ve booked that Vail vacation rental, step outside and get ready to explore. Take advantage of the serenity, which lends itself well to excursions on foot. A generous section of the Arizona Trail runs through Vail, and it’s the perfect spot to hike, ride a bike, or go birdwatching with the family. The Colossal Cave area offers prime space for picnicking and camping, and there are incomparable views from some of the area’s most impressive trails, including Gunsight Pass.

Natural features

A rancher’s town with an adventurer’s spirit

Named for ranchers Edward and Walter Vail, the area was made up primarily of ranches in the 19th century. Located about half an hour south from Tucson, it’s noteworthy for some impressive natural attractions, among them the Rincon Mountains in Saguaro National Park, and the aptly named Colossal Cave, which includes miles of passageways. Ciénega Creek crosses Interstate 10, which is near the town. Near here, Davidson Canyon is also accessible—a permit is required, but it’s an excellent spot to view a pretty sunrise and dramatic sunset.
