Aspen made a name for itself as a winter destination when visionary skiers, philosophers, and locals created a cultural hub in the Rocky Mountains centered around skiing. Those same visionaries also launched the Aspen Institute and the “mind, body, spirit” ethos that established Aspen as the original cultural mountain town. Today, those who live in Aspen often say they came for the winter but stayed for the summer. An endless array of arts, culture, dining, and nightlife give Aspen an urbane feel that belies its small-town charm and inspires countless stories.
An Aspen vacation is a mind, body, spirit experience, whether learning a new skill, feeding a fascination, or simply absorbing the mountain spirit. Aspen is the perfect summer destination for those seeking wide open spaces and the healing power of nature for the classic unplanned summer.
