ASPEN —  and

The “chic” former mining town of Aspen is a ski resort town and year-round destination for outdoor recreation. It is also known for high-end restaurants and boutiques, and landmarks like the Wheeler Opera House, built in 1889 during the area’s silver mining boom. The Wheeler-Stallard House is a local history museum set in a 19th-century, Queen Anne–style home, while the Aspen Art Museum displays contemporary artworks.
