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.
Visiting Maroon Lake Scenic Trail and Maroon Bells will get you outdoors. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Aspen: Buena Vista (Vicksburg & Climbing Tours), Fishing Charters & Tours (in Vail) and Glenwood Springs (Thermal Spas & Hanging Lake Trail). There's lots more to do: cruise along Independence Pass, identify plant and animal life at Maroon Bells-Snowmass Wilderness Area, and pause for some photo ops at The John Denver Sanctuary.

For reviews, photos, traveler tips, and more tourist information, go to the Aspen vacation planner.

Expect a daytime high around 77°F in August, and nighttime lows around 46°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 4th (Wed) early enough to travel back home.
