Aspen is a place of great beauty where one can come and regroup and refocus. It is the perfect place for the sophisticated traveler to experience. As envisioned by Walter Paepcke of Chicago, who created the Aspen Institute and the Aspen Music Festival, the town is a “center for dialogue, a place for lifting us out of our usual selves”. It was to be a place where people could develop in body, mind and spirit. This became known as the “Aspen Idea”.
Today in Aspen, the “Aspen Idea” is alive and well. You will find interesting, well-educated people who have a passion for being in nature, for the arts and expanding their minds. Many of the people who live in the valley are here strictly due to the amazing lifestyle. There are very few places in the country, the size of Aspen, that offer so much. Come check it out for yourself!!
You will hear about the glitz and glamour of Aspen and those who visit here, but that is not the true nature of the people who live here.
