Best Colorado Souvenirs Denver 2003 - Vail Manhole Covers
Municipal Building

Like just about everything else in Vail, the town's new manhole covers were pretty classy -- and after a few were stolen right out of the ground, town officials decided to change the way visitors procured their souvenirs. Now you can buy your own cast-iron Vail manhole cover, emblazoned with the original Vail logo, the resort's 1962 founding date and its elevation. The covers come in two sizes: a 52-pound, two-foot-diameter version that costs $295 (and definitely qualifies as extra baggage when you're flying home after a ski vacation), and a six-pound, eight-inch-diameter miniature that runs only $65.
