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.
Step out of the city life by going to Climbing Tours and Independence Pass. Popular historic sites such as South Park City Museum and Vicksburg are in your itinerary. Get out of town with these interesting Aspen side-trips: Fairy Forest (in Breckenridge), Fishing Charters & Tours (in Vail) and Hanging Lake Trail (in Glenwood Springs). On the 4th (Thu), dedicate a day to the elevated beauty of Aspen Mountain / Ajax. There's still lots to do: take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Maroon Bells, look for all kinds of wild species at Montgomery Reservoir, hike along Maroon Lake Scenic Trail, and take a peaceful walk through White River National Forest.

In June, daytime highs in Aspen are 79°F, while nighttime lows are 43°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 7th (Sun) to allow enough time to travel back home.
