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: Glenwood Springs (Thermal Spas, Hanging Lake Trail, & more) and Marble Distilling Co. & The Distillery Inn (in Carbondale). There's still lots to do: take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Maroon Bells, cruise along Independence Pass, appreciate the history behind The John Denver Sanctuary, and trek along Maroon Lake Scenic Trail.

To find traveler tips and tourist information, you can read our Aspen trip builder tool .

In October, daytime highs in Aspen are 60°F, while nighttime lows are 30°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 22nd (Tue) early enough to travel back home.
