No longer famous for its lettuce production, Avon is now considered the heart of the Vail Valley and gateway to Beaver Creek. The new gondola from the Westin Riverfront project expedites skiers to Beaver Creek mountain. With picturesque Nottingham Lake as the jewel of the town, numerous residential opportunities exist for both locals and second-home buyers. Avon presents wonderful opportunities for residents and visitors. The library, recreation center, parks, and playgrounds all give Avon a true community feel while shopping and dining opportunities are plentiful. During the 4th of July, you won't want to miss Colorado's largest fireworks display over the lake. Avon is currently working on a master plan which will incorporate the Westin Riverfront with a Main Street featuring new restaurants, pedestrian friendly streets, condominiums, and retail shops.
At the base of Beaver Creek, an easy free bus ride up to many acres of world renowned ski and snowboard fun.
Wonderful restaurants and shopping abound in the heart of Avon.
Enjoy the well-maintained bike bath that meanders next to the river. It's a great adventure with plenty of spots to stop and picnic along the river.
