Aspen, Colorado is one of the most popular destinations in the US for skiing, but this cute small town has stilll a lot to offer in the summer. Aspen is a place that has been on my bucket list for years so finally, I can check that off. It’s exactly what I was expecting and I can’t ask for a better birthday trip. I did my best to include more footage from the hotel so you guys have an idea of what it has to offer. I would definitely recommend coming here in the summer. It is still so much fun and the views are still just as mesmerizing. Scroll to the bottom of the post for the video.
Go On A Gondola
This is fun to try all year round as it is covered. I would recommend getting into red ones as they have Bluetooth speakers. Totally worth $33 as it covers the round trip.
Hike to Maroon Bells
Besides skiing in Aspen, there are many other things to do especially in the summer. If you like hiking, definitely try hiking to Maroon Bells for these stunning views.
Go On A Scenic Drive
If you love driving and admiring the views, I recommend driving over Independence Pass. This is the route that leads to Aspen. it’s not the fastest, but gorgeous views.
If you are into adventure sports like me, then you got to try whitewater rafting in Aspen. It’s seasonal so do check before you book your trip. Bring a GoPro if you have one.
Explore Aspen Art Museum
Aspen Art Museum is conveniently located in downtown Aspen and also has one of the best views besides hosting some amazing exhibitions. There is also a rooftop cafe.
