Holiday In Aspen
Things to Do in Aspen
Depending on when you can get away on your holiday in Aspen, the weather may be just right for a ski lesson on the slopes of Buttermilk Mountain. Serious about the slalom? Up there in the Aspen Highlands, you’ll find a wide range of courses to test your skills. When you’re ready to free your feet, spend the day at Maroon Bells—they’re the most-photographed peaks in the United States, so be ready for your close-up. Drive around in one of our awesome Aspen car hire options or catch a passing snowmobile and go shutter bug crazy along the Maroon Lake Scenic Trail. Keep your chill at the John Denver Sanctuary—a thoughtful memorial to one of Aspen’s most beloved residents and musicians. Visitors do burst into easygoing melodies, so you probably won’t be the only one crooning “Sunshine on My Shoulders”. Balance all that peace and quiet with a white water rafting trip through the local waterways. You’ll find plenty guides and gear outposts around town who are more than happy to help you spike your adrenaline levels—your Aspen holiday wouldn’t be complete without it.
Shopping, Dining & Nightlife
Part of Aspen’s charm is, well, charm. Visit the historic downtown area to scoop up this season’s designer finds—from Armani to Valentino—in a friendly village atmosphere. Most of the shops are located south of Main Street, looking up at some of the best ski sites in the city. So don’t forget to pick up some gloves for your next go-round.
You could graze while you shop, since the best of Aspen’s restaurants are also located downtown. Refuel fresh off the gondolas with fast chain food or clean up and tuck in to a fancy bistro. Aspen is all about the international eats, especially French and Italian cuisines, so get hungry.
Like other Colorado cities, Aspen likes to have a good time while keeping things low-key. Even when the weather calls for bundling up, you can catch usually catch an outdoor concert featuring big-name artists through the streets of the city centre. And if you’re not sure what to drink, remember that Colorado’s brewery culture is on-point. Bottoms up!
