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.
Get outdoors at Maroon Lake Scenic Trail and Climbing Tours. Popular historic sites such as South Park City Museum and Holden Marolt Mining & Ranching Museum are in your itinerary. Change things up with these side-trips from Aspen: Vicksburg (in Buena Vista), Glenwood Springs (Linwood Cemetery, Thermal Spas, & more) and Breckenridge (Wellington Trail & Fairy Forest). On the 14th (Sun), dedicate a day to the elevated beauty of Aspen Mountain / Ajax. There's much more to do: take some stellar pictures from Independence Pass, look for all kinds of wild species at Maroon Bells-Snowmass Wilderness Area, cast your line with a fishing tour, and trot along with a tour on horseback.

To find other places to visit, photos, maps, and more tourist information, use the Aspen trip planner.

July in Aspen sees daily highs of 81°F and lows of 49°F at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 19th (Fri) to allow enough time to travel back home.
