Aspen Colorado...... Aspen Rocks!

Looking for a great weekend (or week) getaway? First thing you want to do is pick up a copy of ASPENPEAK magazine for all the “Hot Happenings” and best places to eat and drink, complete with menus and reviews. ASPENPEAK magazine also offers the best in the current Real Estate market, interior design, architecture, fashion, retail therapy, fine art and very popular feature articles. Some celebrities to have graced the cover include; Kate Hudson, Goldie Hawn, Melanie Griffith, Antonio Banderas, Kevin Costner, Susan Sarandon, Mariah Carey and many more. If you are lucky it might already be on the coffee table in your hotel room. has an online version as well.

There are many fine accommodations in Aspen,  but at least once you should check out The Aspen Square Hotel. It sits just a block away from the base of the gondola where you can walk right into downtown Aspen with all of the fine dining, shopping and nightlife just steps away. Many of the studio apartments overlook downtown or if you prefer,  a view overlooking the pool and hot tub facing the mountain, that doesn’t suck either. All of the “apartment homes” have full kitchens, balconies & fireplaces. There is also a grill in the pool area for guests to use, first come first serve, and  even dine poolside if you like. The Market, ( grocery store), is directly across the street for convenient shopping as well.  has all the information you need to decide if this is a place for you, including  live webcams.
  There are countless fun and exciting outdoor activities to choose from,  may I suggest horseback riding anyone? The Maroon Bells Guide & Outfitters could not have been more friendly & knowledgeable; our experience with them was very enjoyable. There are many rides to choose from, from 25 minute pony rides for the little ones, dinner rides, lunch rides, to multiple day wilderness trips, there is truly something for everyone. The horses were very well mannered and very well taken care of.  

How about taking a rafting trip down the Roaring Fork or Brown’s Canyon? Try Aspen Whitewater Rafting they offer several different trips including half day trips or full day trips with lunch included. Aspen Whitewater Rafting provides all the gear you will need for your trip as well as transportation to and from the river including pickups in and around the Aspen Snowmass area. Aspen Whitewater Rafting offers some of the best river trips in central Colorado.
