Aspen is a gorgeous town. Expensive but fantastic to visit. There's plenty to see and do in town and in the surrounding mountains at any time of year.

The A-list ski town has no shortage of plush hotels primed for romance—such as The Little Nell or the St. Regis—or sips to get you there: the Rocky Mountain state’s legendary craft beer scene helped rank this tony mountain town at the top of the survey for its local brews (such as Aspen Brewing’s pale ale called This Season’s Blonde). For a romantic dinner you can’t beat Cloud Nine Alpine Bistro, with big views—from 10,700 feet—of the Maroon Bells and European-style classics such as fondue and veal schnitzel. Readers also applauded Aspen for its variety of events, from the X Games to the high-minded Aspen Ideas Festival.
This just happens to be one of my favorite cities - and not just because I was born here. Aspen is beautiful any time of year. Some of my favorite memories are in the spring up in the mountains surrounded by wild flowers. Nothing gets better than being in a field when a sun shower surprises you and there's nothing but beauty around you. I could go on for hours, but I won't.
