Aspen

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.
For shopping fun, head to Art on 8th or Cooper Corner Gallery. Satisfy your inner culture vulture at South Park City Museum and Frisco Historic Park and Museum. Get out of town with these interesting Aspen side-trips: River Rafting & Tubing (in Buena Vista), Hanging Lake Trail (in Glenwood Springs) and Temple Israel (in Leadville). On the 4th (Fri), dedicate a day to the elevated beauty of Aspen Mountain / Ajax. There's lots more to do: take in the awesome beauty at Maroon Bells, cruise along Independence Pass, stroll through Maroon Lake Scenic Trail, and stroll around The John Denver Sanctuary.

For other places to visit, photos, where to stay, and other tourist information, use the Aspen online trip maker .

In September, daytime highs in Aspen are 72°F, while nighttime lows are 41°F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 4th (Fri) so you can travel back home.
