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.
Visiting Aspen Mountain / Ajax and Maroon Bells will get you outdoors. Give yourself a bit of retail therapy at Gene Taylor Sports and Cooper Corner Gallery. Change things up with these side-trips from Aspen: Thermal Spas (in Glenwood Springs), Redstone Castle Tours (in Redstone) and Paonia (Black Bridge Winery, Stone Cottage Cellars, &more). The adventure continues: take in the awesome beauty at Buttermilk Mountain, appreciate the history behind The John Denver Sanctuary, stroll through Maroon Lake Scenic Trail, and take a memorable drive along Independence Pass.

To find other places to visit, where to stay, more things to do, and tourist information, use the Aspen attractions planning app.

In December, daily temperatures in Aspen can reach 35°F, while at night they dip to 10°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 19th (Sat) early enough to travel back home.
