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 off the beaten path and head to Maroon Lake Scenic Trail and Glenwood Canyon Bike Trail. Change things up with these side-trips from Aspen: Hopemore Mine Tour (in Leadville), Pike National Forest (in Fairplay) and Vail (Vail Recreation Path, Vail Valley, & more). On the 5th (Sat), spend a relaxing day on the river with a rafting and tubing tour. The adventure continues: grab your bike and head to Rio Grande Trail, identify plant and animal life at Maroon Bells-Snowmass Wilderness Area, mingle with the ghosts of the past at Holden Marolt Mining & Ranching Museum, and trek along Hunter Creek Trail.

In September in Aspen, expect temperatures between 72°F during the day and 41°F at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 5th (Sat) to allow time to travel back home.
