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.
Attractions like River Rafting & Tubing and Room Escape Games make great kid-friendly stops. Change things up with these side-trips from Aspen: Glenwood Springs (Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park, Hanging Lake Trail, & more) and Horseback Riding Tours (in Vail). On the 22nd (Tue), 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, explore the landscape on two wheels at Rio Grande Trail, tour the pleasant surroundings at Maroon Lake Scenic Trail, and gain insight at Aspen Center for Environmental Studies.

To find more things to do, other places to visit, ratings, and other tourist information, use the Aspen vacation maker tool .

October in Aspen sees daily highs of 60°F and lows of 30°F at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 24th (Thu) to allow enough time to travel back home.
