Welcome to the winter wonderland and playground for Hollywood celebrities, European snow bunnies, and the Ivy League-educated elite. Add gourmet fare at upscale eateries and rubbing elbows with socialites at classy cocktail bars, and this place becomes the ultimate indulgence.
There’s more glitz, glamour, and high fashion here than you can shake a ski pole at, but thinking that’s all Aspen is doesn’t give this Rocky Mountain resort town enough credit. Aspen also has some serious slopes, awe-inspiring views best enjoyed after a challenging hike, and a variety of live music you’d expect to find only in a big city. Long after the seasonal skiers and snowboarders head out, Aspen boasts some of the most beautiful mountain scenery and sophisticated culture in Colorado. How can you enjoy it all? By booking one of our Aspen vacation rentals, of course.
Is that the elevation making you breathe heavy, or just the breathtaking views of Maroon Bells? You could head home and count this trip a success after a couple of selfies at the most photographed mountains in the state. Of course, we recommend sticking around long enough to acclimate to the elevation. Escape the crowds by heading to John Denver Park. Named after the famous country and folk-singing local, it’s the perfect place to slow down and relax. Okay, maybe it’s not quite as relaxing as a soak in the hot tub back at Capitol Peak Lodge by Snowmass Mountain Lodging, or with a hot cup of cocoa made in your very own kitchen at Aspenwood, A Destination Residence, but it’s still worth a visit.
Looking for the perfect local experience? Many of our long-term rentals are just outside Aspen in less expensive, off-the-beaten path Snowmass. Get to know year-round residents, save your budget for those Gucci snow gloves, and feel right at home. Book with Travelocity today!
