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.
Explore Aspen's surroundings by going to Marble Distilling Co. & The Distillery Inn (in Carbondale) and Thermal Spas (in Glenwood Springs). There's still lots to do: fly down the slopes at Aspen Snowmass, cruise along Independence Pass, and pause for some photo ops at The John Denver Sanctuary.

For reviews, more things to do, where to stay, and tourist information, read Aspen tour planning website.

Kingsport to Aspen is an approximately 8.5- hour flight. You can also drive. Due to the time zone difference, you'll gain 2 hours traveling from Kingsport to Aspen. Traveling from Kingsport in January, things will get slightly colder in Aspen: highs are around 34°F and lows about 8°F. Wrap up your sightseeing by early afternoon on the 20th (Mon) to allow enough time to travel to Colorado Springs.
