Aspen is a dream come true for many people, so if you’re lucky enough to make the move to this charming, picturesque Colorado town, here are some of the most amazing things you can anticipate while there.

You Don’t Need a Car to Get Around

One thing that might surprise Aspen newcomers is how easy it is to get from place to place without a car. There are plenty of buses available to get from one end of town to the other, but most shops and restaurants are easily reached just by walking.

Considering how gorgeous the natural outdoor sights are, you can get your daily exercise in and admire the view while going from the grocery store to a local restaurant. Aspen is a small, charming town that is reasonably easy to navigate.

There Are Lots of Events

In short, living somewhere that takes pride in uniting its community for fun events and cultural festivities makes life way more entertaining. In Aspen, there is always something going on. If you keep tabs on the events calendar, you and your family will almost always have something to do on the weekends and holidays.

Wintersköl is an annual event held in January celebrating everything that makes Aspen special. Expect to see fireworks, snow sculptures, artistry, and more.

During December, Aspen holds the 12 Days of Aspen, a magical festival that transforms the town into a wintery wonderland fit for the whole family to enjoy. Special ski events are also held throughout the year, like the Cocktail Classic.

The Snow Sports

Let’s be honest, when most people think about Aspen, they think about snow, and from there they picture themselves skiing or snowboarding. Both of these sports are significant parts of Aspen culture. Aspen Snowmass has four distinctive areas for skiers to start their adventure, each with its own flair.

According to the official website, there are over 5,300 acres stretched across four mountains— that’s a lot of terrain to cover! Even if you aren’t super skilled at the sport, there are plenty of classes you can take to perfect your technique.

The Food is Exceptional

Living in Aspen means living in a culinary hotspot. There is a bevy of restaurants catering to a variety of tastes, whether you want home cooking, clean eating, or something more eccentric.

Mawa’s Kitchen is a local secret that serves avocado curries and more and is a great breakfast spot. Home Team BBQ is a French-American restaurant serving delectable smoked meats and savory sides. For a high-class dining experience, 7908 Aspen is a must, or try Element 47, located in the Little Nell hotel.

For something more low-key but equally delicious, try the Jewish deli, Shlomo’s. Finally, the Pine Creek Cookhouse Ashcroft Co is an excellent place for a one-of-a-kind storybook setting.
