Aspen

Rocky Mountain High

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 out of town with these interesting Aspen side-trips: Marble Distilling Co. & The Distillery Inn (in Carbondale), Buena Vista (River Rafting & Tubing & Collegiate Peaks Scenic Overlook) and Thermal Spas (in Glenwood Springs). It doesn't end there: hike along Maroon Lake Scenic Trail.

Mile-High City
