Arts & the Outdoors

Aspen is one of the most unique destinations in the world, where majestic natural vistas support countless outdoor activities, and where you can also enjoy world-class culture.  A typical day in Aspen features a morning hike, breakfast at Poppycock's Cafe or Hickory House, biking, hiking or fly fishing.  Before or after dinner, you can see a professional play or musical at Theatre Aspen or check out the Aspen Music Festival and School, Aspen SantaFe Ballet or Jazz Aspen Snowmass for any number of entertainment options.

Take a walking tour with the Aspen Historical Society, visit the widely-photographed Maroon Bells or drive up Independence Pass to the Continental Divide (pictured to the right).

Adventurous souls can join a Class 4+ whitewater rafting trip, or paraglide off of Aspen Mountain, providing a grace note of colored sails in the late afternoon skies.
