Aspen Square Daily News
What a great summer this has been! There is so much to see and do in Aspen this time of year, from music to mountain hikes and excursions, to special events and just enjoying some "down time" around the pool. The fountain at the Wheeler, left, is always a big hit with the little ones as adults enjoy outside dining nearby at many of Aspen's top restaurants. Late summer is a great time to be visiting Aspen Square. A trip up to the top of Aspen Mountain on the Silver Queen gondola is always fun, open weekend through September. Enjoy lunch service on top.
Once again, the Aspen Music Festival was a grand success as they presented their final performance of the season in late August. Oh no, it's over now! What a wonderful summer of great music it has been! The festival features concerts and events just about every day, all summer long. You can frequently see and hear music students playing on corners and in the Mall downtown, every night. Next summer we get to do it all again. We will be ready!
Aspen is moving at a more relaxed pace as we enjoy the delights of late summer. The weather is warm during the day and crisp at night -- just right! There is still much to see and do in Aspen, or just relax around the Aspen Square pool. Enjoy the Aspen Mountain Gondola that takes visitors to over 11,000 feet and the Sundeck Restaurant. Have lunch up top and take in the truly magnificant views. Stroll through town and have coffee and snacks at a sidwalk cafe. Now is the time to enjoy Aspen at a slower speed, and have fun in the Colorado Mountains. Come stay with us!
