The historic town of Minturn is much more than just a "stop out of the way" between Vail and Avon. Located on Highway 24, it is a short ten-minute drive to Vail, but feels worlds apart. Located along the banks of the Eagle River, Minturn has retained its own personality. Formerly a mining and railroad town, it now is home to a close community of homes and businesses, taking visitors "back to the old west". Small shops, galleries and some of Valley's most enjoyable restaurants can all be found on Main Street. From the Minturn Jazz Festival to the summer Farmers Market, Minturn is a refreshing break from the hustle and bustle of the rest of the Valley.
