There’s something truly special about being in the mountains during the summer. The sun is shining, the wildflowers are blooming, and people are out enjoying the great outdoors together. I often get bogged down with my “busy” life in Denver and forget that I am only a short drive away from some of Colorado’s most gorgeous destinations.
I snuck away for a weekday trip to Aspen a few weeks ago and had the best time escaping the city for a nice mix of relaxation and activity. I stayed at The Little Nell, a resort that holds the only 5-star, 5-diamond rating in the area. The staff is attentive and welcoming, the rooms are spacious and comfortable, and the hotel has a beautiful outdoor area including a pool and hot tub.
What I love most about Aspen in the summer is the welcoming community, the wide variety of activities, shops, and restaurants the town has to offer, and of course the beautiful scenery. Whether you are looking to enjoy an action packed vacation, traveling with family or hoping to recharge, there is something for you.
Because you guys asked, I have put together a little blog post with my favorite things to do, see, eat and drink in Aspen.
