Aspen is known for its art galleries, and it is no wonder that many artists have been inspired by the mountain landscape.

There are tons of great bike trails and paved routes around Aspen, but it’s always fun to hop on your bike and pedal your way around town.

There are multiple bike rental options, and our concierge can make sure you have bikes available at your vacation home. 

Take a Stroll in Paepcke Park

Grab an ice cream cone at Paradise Bakery and make the six-minute walk to Paepcke Park. Located right off of Main Street, you have probably driven by this tiny piece of paradise many times. With shady trees and quaint landscaping, it’s a great place to stop at and relax during your downtown exploration. Plus, you can snap a photo at the iconic gazebo!
