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.
Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Vail Valley and Holden Marolt Mining & Ranching Museum. Visiting Fishing Charters & Tours and Cathedral Lake Trail will get you outdoors. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Aspen: Gunnison (Gunnison Pioneer Museum & Blue Mesa Fishing) and Rifle (Rifle Falls & Rifle Gap State Park). It doesn't end there: take in the awesome beauty at Maroon Bells and look for all kinds of wild species at Maroon Bells-Snowmass Wilderness Area.
