Aspen with Kids: A Family Vacation


Its glamorous image as a ski resort for the stars may give the impression that families would be better off taking their vacation somewhere other than Aspen, Colo. But Aspen's natural setting, pedestrian-friendly downtown and well-funded amenities make it an attractive playground for every member of the family, from seniors down to the littlest juniors. In fact, Aspen will keep your young kids entertained and happy.

Families with children under 7 should have no problem navigating strollers on Aspen's city sidewalks. And while there is parking all over downtown, it's often packed by mid-day; so plan on starting your day early to secure a spot.
