While Aspen, Colorado, has long been considered one of the top ski destinations in the United States, this Rocky Mountain city of 7,400 has an incredible array of year-round delights, making it the ultimate vacation spot for lovers of the outdoors. After shopping at the Overland store, grab a bite and a craft beer at one of Aspen’s exclusive restaurants or breweries, then explore the downtown area’s upscale boutiques and art galleries. Later, take a drive along Independence Pass, a 20-mile-long drive along the Continental Divide—and one of the highest scenic roads in North America at 12,000 feet—for breathtaking views of forests and cliffs alike.
Ready to hit the slopes? Aspen boasts four top ski mountain resorts, including Snowmass, which features the country’s second biggest vertical drop and an off-the-slopes thrill ride, the Breathtaker Alpine Coaster. Beyond skiing, you’ll find tons to do outdoors, like dogsledding, horseback riding, hot air ballooning, exploring ghost towns, and—for the truly brave—whitewater rafting down the Roaring Fork River or along the rapids of the Arkansas River.
A trip to Aspen isn’t complete without visiting the picturesque Maroon Bells. These twin peaks rising more than 14,000 feet are the perfect spot to hike, picnic, and breathe in the wild, fresh air. For a culture fix, take in an exhibition of contemporary works at the Aspen Art Museum, quietly reflect at the beautiful John Denver Sanctuary, or enjoy one of the city’s annual events, such as the Aspen Music Festival or Aspen X Games.
