What makes Simba Run in Vail, Colorado unique? It is the self-proclaimed “Val’s official headquarters for family fun”.

Why you ask? It’s not because of the indoor pool or comfortable condominium rentals. It’s not having Vail’s largest indoor pool, it’s hot tubs, or its free private shuttle into town. Simba Run is one of the best hotels in Vail because of its location and close proximity to Vail, Colorado summer events and activities.

The Bravo! Vail Valley Music Festival opens with a 25th Anniversary salute bringing together its three artistic directors for a free performance on Monday June 25th at 6PM at the Gerald R.

This season brings back the Dallas Symphony Orchestra, the Philadelphia Orchestra and the venerable New York Philharmonic. The Bravo Vail Valley Music Festival runs June 25-Aug 4, 2012. Reserved seating is available, as well as lawn seats. Performance locations vary, as do price ranges of tickets. For details about the Bravo! Vail Valley Music Festival, log on to
