Known as a ski resort town, Aspen's history goes back to its roots as a silver-mining village tucked away in an isolated valley of the Rocky Mountains.
Visiting Rio Grande Trail and Independence Pass will get you outdoors. Get some historical perspective at South Park City Museum and Holden Marolt Mining & Ranching Museum. Change things up with these side-trips from Aspen: Buena Vista (Vicksburg & River Rafting & Tubing), Hanging Lake Trail (in Glenwood Springs) and Vail (Fishing Charters & Tours & Horseback Riding Tours). On the 22nd (Mon), dedicate a day to the elevated beauty of Aspen Mountain / Ajax. On the 28th (Sun), spend an exhilarating day on the slopes at Aspen Highlands. And it doesn't end there: trek along Maroon Lake Scenic Trail, identify plant and animal life at White River National Forest, stroll through Lost Man Trail, and go for a walk through Fairy Forest.

July in Aspen sees daily highs of 81°F and lows of 49°F at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 28th (Sun) to allow enough time to travel back home.
