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.
Family-friendly places like Maroon Bells and Beaver Creek Ski Area will thrill your kids. When in Aspen, make a side trip to see Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park in Glenwood Springs, approximately Glenwood Springs away. Next up on the itinerary: walk around The John Denver Sanctuary, admire the local landmark of Mill Street Fountain, and stop by The Emporium And Flying Circus.

Expect a bit cooler temperatures when traveling from Denver in December; daily highs in Aspen reach °F and lows reach °F. You'll have a few hours on the 11th (Wed) to wrap things up before traveling home.
