Looking for an awesome vacation destination for the entire family this spring or summer that won’t break the bank? If you love breathtaking scenery, being outdoors and more activities then you can shake a stick at then you should visit Aspen located in the Colorado Rocky Mountains- especially during the off-season!
There is something for everyone in Aspen like world-class hiking, biking, camping, and even outdoor concerts in the summer off-season. Known for the best year-round mountain adventures, activities and experiences, Aspen is situated on the Roaring Fork River and beneath several of Colorado’s highest peaks. Make sure you bring plenty of sunscreen because with 300 days of sunshine per year and an altitude at just about 8,000 feet you will be closer to the sun then you are used to while in Aspen!
Aspen boasts 4 ski resorts and several amazing high-end restaurants, boutiques and landmarks for you and your family to enjoy if that is your thing. The summer months tend to be known as the off-season in Aspen and is when the famed snow-capped 14,000-foot peaks change to colorful wildflower fields! Don’t worry though if you have your heart set on skiing, you can usually still find snow into June due to the fickle weather in Colorado!
Traveling in the off-season is the best way save money on your visit to Aspen especially if you are smart when planning your vacation! You can find lots of great deals on hotel booking and lift tickets during this time because some of the resorts have closed for the season and room rates will drop usually to around $150 per night which is just a fraction of the price you would pay mid-winter! Whether you’re looking for a five-star luxury hotel or a comfy, down-to-earth affordable lodge, Aspen lodging has something for everyone (including pets!)
