Rocky Mountain High

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.
Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the next day: take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Maroon Bells.

Tampa to Aspen is an approximately 8-hour flight. You can also drive; or take a bus. You'll gain 2 hours traveling from Tampa to Aspen due to the time zone difference.

Mile-High City

Keep things going the next day: take in the pleasant sights at Clear Creek Whitewater Park and then see the sky in a new way at Denver Museum of Nature & Science.
