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.
You'll find plenty of places to visit near Aspen: Glenwood Springs (Thermal Spas, Hanging Lake, & more), River Rafting & Tubing (in Buena Vista) and Carbondale (Carbondale Branch Library & West Elk Loop Scenic Byway). Next up on the itinerary: take in the awesome beauty at Maroon Bells, hike along Maroon Lake Scenic Trail, deepen your understanding at Aspen Center for Environmental Studies, and tour the pleasant surroundings at Aspen Mountain / Ajax.

To find maps, where to stay, and other tourist information, read Aspen trip planner .

In October, daily temperatures in Aspen can reach 60°F, while at night they dip to 30°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 5th (Tue) early enough to travel back home.
