Aspen

Aspen mountains

Summer is almost here and the mountains out west are calling. We asked luxury travel expert Elisa Brown to share her favorite Aspen summer spots with us.

Best Hotels: Hands down The Little Nell and Hotel Jerome...you honestly cannot go wrong with either.

Eats: I love  Spring Cafe for breakfast;  Ajax Tavern and  Pine Creek Cookhouse for lunch and Casa TuaMatshuisha and  Cache Cache for dinner. 

Drinks: If you do not have friends or family that belongs to the member only Caribou Club, then head to Jimmy's... it is an Aspen institution. 

Activities: Hit up  Bike Hub of Aspen for your bike rental...they will set you up on the best trails for your level,  Elk Mountain Expeditions for white water rafting, Taylor Creek for fly fishing, Ajax to Little Cloud for a killer hike and be sure to check out the weekly rodeo held on Wednesday's in Snowmass Village, it is a true highlight. 

Culture: The  Aspen Art Museum always has a thoughtfully curated eclectic exhibition.
