Why You Should Visit Aspen this Fall

At the moment, it is Autumn in Australia; and as an artist, I am really captivated by the vibrant rustic tones on display. Certainly, this is why many Adelaidians (South Australia) gravitate towards the hills. In particular, there is a marvelous village called Stirling, which attracts tourists from around the world. Considering the scorching temperatures in the Summer months, this time of year offers visitors a pleasant bit of relief.

In the Northern Hemisphere, the Autumn months take place from September to December. This season is also referred to as Fall in Aspen, which is really a tourist hotspot at this time of year. Even though this vibrant city is renowned for skiing activities, not everyone is obsessed with snow. As I have mentioned in various other articles, Aspen has a wealth of different pursuits for people of all ages.

A lot of people favour the autumnal months because the weather is more bearable. I also find this season quiet magical because of the array of different rustic hues. In Aspen, visitors can enjoy a variety of different cultural, energetic, and gourmet experiences. There is also some extraordinary historic and contemporary architecture dotted around the city, including Aspen’s modern art museum.

Visiting Aspen in the Fall

If you visit Aspen in the fall, I would highly recommend that you go on a hike or different bike ride each day. Popular scenic routes include the Rio Grande Trail or a challenging ride to Independent Pass. However, spending a day at the Maroon Bells, enjoying a picnic and taking in the magnificent Autumnal views would be hard to beat. Additionally indulging in a bit of kayaking or whitewater rafting is both an immense amount of fun, and also readily accessible.  

Even though I absolutely adore outdoor pursuits, not all of of them have to involve strenuous exercise. Therefore, a magnificent diversion would be to spend a couple of leisurely days at the Snowmass Wine Festival, which traditionally takes place on the 14th and 15th of September. The main highlight occurs on Saturday, with a comprehensive tasting session that showcases wines from around the world.

As a final touch, I wouldn’t leave Aspen without experiencing the world’s largest hot springs pool at Glenwood Springs. In my opinion, this would be the perfect way to end a perfect holiday.
