Aspen is known as one of the absolute best places to ski in North America, but it is a perfect little mountain town for other seasons as well. Snuggled between the Rockies, this charming small mountain town is a favorite summer destination as well. Try skeet shooting or go on a thrilling river tour. With summits higher than 14,000 feet, there is always something to see and explore. Festivals showing off art, wine and music are scheduled year-round, many in the summer. Visit Maroon Bells, one of the most photographed peaks in the country, take your family summer camping in the wilderness, or go ballooning and paragliding.
