Aspen is one of Colorado’s favorite year-round resort areas. During winter or summer, an Aspen vacation is the perfect choice for most people. Aspen sits at the upper end of the Roaring Fork Valley, with the Roaring Fork River, a superb trout stream, running through town. It offers an interesting history, challenging outdoor recreation opportunities, abundant cultural activities, pleasant climate and beautiful natural scenery. Aspen is world renowned for its downhill skiing. Aspen Mountain rises imposingly from town and is one of four ski areas in the valley. Snowmass, Aspen Highlands and Buttermilk mountains all lie within 12 miles of town. These areas offer some of the best skiing and snowboarding in the world.
From the early 1800’s, Dallas was booming with activity on the western front. Our cowboys set out on a hardship mission to run the many cattle drives on our amous Shawnee Trail and our Pioneers had the vision to make Dallas more than just a trading post on the banks of our Trinity River.
The roots of our city remain deep with the same friendliness, down to earth attitudes and successful pride that was present back in the days of the early cowboy. Today, our urban cowboy roots sprawl throughout the eighth largest city in the United States. With western affluence, we remain in the present as a model of the modern Texas that offers visitors the very best in culture, attractions, sports, dining, ranches and incredible shopping. Come see for yourself how the true spirit of Dallas can be seen into the past and far into the future!
