Edwards, Colorado Visitor Information
A commercial mecca including lodging, boutiques, restaurants, movie theaters, galleries, and professional services. Founded by Frenchman Joseph Brett in the late 1800s, Edwards still exudes a certain "je ne sais quoi." Attracted to the area by its mining potential, Brett and his family stayed in Edwards to establish a resort for executives traveling by train. As Vail and Beaver Creek grew, Edwards became a community for resort employees.
Just four miles west of Beaver Creek, Edwards is a local hot spot and home to Riverwalk, filled with restaurants, movie theaters, galleries, shopping and professional services.
