For a small mountain town, Aspen has a rich and varied history, going back to 1879, in silver mining, ranching, and eventually, skiing. Anyone can see this by strolling down Main Street past Victorian-era buildings such as the Sardy House and the Hotel Jerome.
Aspen shopping is often defined by the outstanding offerings of high-end boutiques and world famous designer names scattered throughout the downtown. Gucci, Dior, Theory, Prada, Louis Vuitton, Dolce and Gabana as well as local purveyors of finely crafted goods and fine jewelry are all within easy walking distance.
