Top Eight Activities in Aspen, CO

This cute, historic brick building filled mountain town is well known for celebrity appearances, hosting the X Games, and countless skiing and snowboarding routes.

We checked out so many shops, cafes, restaurants, historic buildings, and even checked out the slopes for future trips! Afterwards, we drove around to explore the…
