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.
Change things up with these side-trips from Aspen: Vail (Betty Ford Alpine Gardens & Vail Mountain Resort), Breckenridge (Boreas Pass Road & Main Street) and Glenwood Springs (Doc Holliday's Grave, Thermal Spas, & more). Next up on the itinerary: take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Maroon Bells, stroll through Aspen Mountain / Ajax, stroll around The John Denver Sanctuary, and hike along Maroon Lake Scenic Trail.

To find more things to do, ratings, other places to visit, and other tourist information, use the Aspen trip maker app .

In October, daytime highs in Aspen are 60°F, while nighttime lows are 30°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 12th (Sat) to allow time to travel back home.
