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.
Take a break from the city and head to Fishing Charters & Tours and Independence Pass. Explore Aspen's surroundings by going to Horseback Riding Tours (in Vail), Buena Vista (Vicksburg & Climbing Tours) and Hanging Lake Trail (in Glenwood Springs). On the 13th (Sat), dedicate a day to the elevated beauty of Aspen Mountain / Ajax. And it doesn't end there: take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Maroon Bells, trek along Maroon Lake Scenic Trail, identify plant and animal life at Windstar Land Conservancy, and stroll through Wellington Trail.

In July in Aspen, expect temperatures between 81°F during the day and 49°F at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 13th (Sat) to allow time to travel back home.
