Aspen is undoubtedly the place to be in summer!
For the outdoor enthusiast – and regardless of whether you’re a hiker, mountain biker, river rafter, hot air ballooner, rock climber, fly-fishing fanatic, or simply prefer to get your rush from hang gliding – we have it all here. And then there are our world-class restaurants and live music venues and Aspen’s cultural events rival those that any major US city has to offer.
For instance, only yesterday afternoon we were fortunate to see Carole King perform live at a fundraiser at Belly Up, arguably one of the best small live-music venues, bringing us world-class performers year-round.
This was one of those rare, ‘Only in Aspen’ experiences. At 73, Carole King still has the same hauntingly distinctive voice – and her spirit and power continue to make such a difference! Now is the time to mark your calendars because on August 9th, the new 33,000-square-foot, three-story Aspen Art Museum opens to the public.
To learn more about the Art Museum’s award-winning Architect, Shigeru Ban, and his unique design concept, click on this link to read Modern Luxury’s fascinating article about why he was chosen and what the museum visitor can expect to see – it will take your breath away! Finally and if you’re in the mood for really fabulous Northern Italian cuisine, I can’t recommend Casa Tua highly enough. Whether you’re eating in the restaurant or in their private dining club, the cozy mountain chalet ambiance, consistently excellent food, and stunning art/decor, make it a must for those seeking a fine dining experience in an elegant European old-world setting.
