Destination guide: Aspen, USA

The City of Aspen is the Home Rule Municipality and is the most populous area of Pitkin County, Colorado, United States. Aspen is located in the Rocky Mountains’ Elk Mountains and the Sawatch Range, on the banks of Roaring Fork River which are at an elevation of 8,000 feet which is above the sea level which is on the Western Slope, 18 km to the west of the Continental Divide.

Undoubtedly the town is quite flashy— and is quite adventurous to make even the quite experienced skiers baffle.  And despite all that it is also credited as world’s most elegant mountain town outside Europe.

This place certainly is the best place for extravagant scenesters and people with paparazzi instincts to meet  celebrity and of course those who wish to experience top-quality skiing.

The mountain also offers quite a conducive environment for skiing and snowboarding. It is certainly quite a good area in Colorado, as it offers four distinct ski areas within a radius of ten-mile that helps even greenhorn skiers and snowboarders. To go for a vintage ski decor and primarily at affordable rates you can visit The Tyrolean Lodge, which was constructed by a well-known Aspen family. The Hotel Jerome concertizes the history of Aspen.

Cache Cache has been on the market for about 24 years serving clients the most sophisticated French cuisine and the ambiance of the restaurant are full of zing. Wherein, those who love gorging on burgers, salads, and sandwiches, can visit  520 Grill.

Moreover, when you are in the gondola itself, Ajax Tavern allures you with the devouring smell of truffle fries and its incredible patio scene.

After completing your skiing activities, the visitors can take a stroll to  Rio Grande Trail, which is across the Roaring Fork River from where you can visit nature preserve located at Hallam Lake that extends about 25 acres of land which is also a part of the Environmental Studies of the Aspen Centre. Apart from this the valley also has  Aspen Art Museum, which is famous for a top-notch contemporary art collection.
