Located in the heart of Colorado, Aspen is considered one of the best places to vacation during the wintertime. Because the ski resort has a remote atmosphere, many travelers visit to get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.
Aspen was originally founded as a mining camp during the Colorado Silver Boom, and was named for the abundance of aspen trees in the area. In the mid-1950s, Aspen Mountain was formed into a ski resort, forever changing the shape of this Colorado Area.
Famous figures, such as Hunter S. Thompson and John Denver, have written stories and songs about the area, deeming it an ideal place to live among the younger generation in the 1970s.
As a result of the growth, Aspen now boasts some of the most expensive real estate prices in the United States, offering the best lodging for anyone who chooses to visit.
The downtown area is considered one of the most popular shopping areas among wintertime visitors. Luxury shops, high-end boutiques and fancy restaurants line the streets. Ralph Lauren, Dior, Louis Vuitton, Prada, Gucci, Fendi and Burberry are just a few of the brand names that can be found in downtown Aspen.
