Hello, and welcome to the Town of Minturn. We are glad you decided to make Minturn your home, and excited to tell you about our community and the beautiful surroundings we treasure. Located 7 miles west of Vail and east of Avon, our town covers 7.761 square miles of ageless landscapes and well-established neighborhoods that make Minturn an ideal home for all age groups. Our school districts include facilities with some of the highest ratings in the state.
Residents and businesses of Minturn have varied reasons for moving here, from the friendly community feel, to our centralized location. We are only minutes from everything the Vail Valley has to offer. The world-famous ski resorts of Vail and Beaver Creek are less than 15 minutes away, unequaled health care can be found in the Medical Center just 10 minutes to the east, and travel is made easy with the Eagle County Regional Airport only a short 30-minute drive. Whatever you are seeking, as a visitor, business or new resident, we welcome the opportunity to meet your needs.
The businesses that call Minturn home have the benefit of being centrally located within an economic corridor connected by major highways and thoroughfares. This provides traffic past our storefronts, and easy access to the unique shops and restaurants within our quaint yet modern small town. Although we are praised for the attribute of a small town atmosphere, we welcome opportunities to accommodate new growth, and constantly seek new ideas from our residents and business partners.
On our website, you can find access to information about our governmental structure, staff and officials, as well as many of our amenities and cultural offerings from movies at Little Beach Park during the summer, to a special tree lighting ceremony with complimentary hot chocolate in December.
All of us who call Minturn home are proud to welcome you to our town. Minturn is a great place to live, work and play. Please join us for our next town event, Council meeting, or just come into town hall to say hello.
