Local Lifestyle 

Hiking and skiing are two of the most common activities celebrated in Aspen. When you want to get a good leg workout in, or if you are simply craving gorgeous vistas, there are numerous mountains, hills, and trails to explore. Of course, that doesn't mean there aren't many dining establishments nearby for a delicious dinner after your adventures. 


Dining, Entertainment & Shopping

Spring Cafe is an optimal choice for breakfast, where you can get your coffee, a smoothie, or a variety of juices. Just a few of their great menu selections include blueberry pancakes, avocado toast, the breakfast quinoa bowl, special scrambles, and the vegetarian burrito. 

A 19th-century miner's cottage was transformed into an upscale restaurant called White House Tavern. Here, you can enjoy craft cocktails and elevated cuisine made from American favorites. You'll find delicious sandwiches, burgers, salads, and popular sides like house-smoked salmon and chicken meatballs. 

Pick up sweet treats from Baker's Table. Specialty cakes and cupcakes are crafted here, ensuring you get the precise flavor and design you desire for any occasion. Whether you need a six-inch round cake to enjoy at home or a tiered and elegant design for an event, this bakery can make it happen. 

Grab your groceries from City Market. This favored shop is the best spot for a quick trip to get your daily essentials. If you want high-end luggage for your next flight, check out the Louis Vuitton around the corner. 

Things to Do

The Upper Hunter Creek Trailhead provides an excellent hiking spot. It's well-loved for its adventurous trails, moose sightings, and gorgeous views. There are some easy paths, but many trails intersect, creating a long and winding area. It gets challenging and is a worthwhile adventure for every avid hiker. 

The Smuggler Mountain Observation Deck is also worth exploring. When you reach the top, you get terrific views of the mountains near and below you. The breathtaking views are worth the climb. It's a great spot to enjoy any time of year.
For a complete change of pace, visit the Aspen Art Museum. This highly-rated venue showcases contemporary pieces from international artists and rotating exhibits from local creators. Aspen also hosts many art galleries — get your feet wet at Aspen Art Gallery, LIK Fine Art Aspen, or Opera Gallery Aspen.
