Why We Love It
Aspen, named for the large quantity of Aspen Trees in the area, resides within the Colorado Rockies. Once on a steady decline due to the collapse of the silver industry, the town has reinvented itself into a popular tourist destination for both winter skiing and summer activities. Known for its outdoor adventure and beauty, including the highly photographed Maroon Bells, the town also attracts those seeking high-end shopping and luxury destination accommodations.
