Summer Activities in Aspen

Most people think of Aspen as a place to go for skiing and other winter sports, but Aspen is a great place to visit during the summer as well. Whitewater rafting, fishing, hiking, mountain biking, rocking climbing and more are all activities that are available to those who choose to spend a summer vacation in Aspen.

Horseback riding, jeep tours and gondola rides are other possibilities for summer visitors. Renting an Aspen condo is a perfect way to spend time in Aspen during the summer. The Aspen Art Museum, a favorite destination of both summer and winter visitors, features contemporary art, community events and educational programs.

Although Aspen gets a lot of sun on a year-round basis, summer temperatures are never too hot, making it an ideal location for enjoying outdoor activities. Summer nights can be cool, but summer rain showers are rare and usually only happen in the form of dramatic thunderstorms that don’t last very long.
Outdoor summer concerts are plentiful in Aspen, and the Aspen Music Festival and School puts on daily events for an eight-week period during the summer. Theatre Aspen produces plays, and the Aspen Historical Society offers tours of the old ghost town of Ashcroft, which is located in the Caste Creek Valley near Aspen.

Whether cultural events or outdoor activities are the main focus, those renting an Aspen vacation condo during the summer will never run out of interesting things to do.
