5 of the Best Things to Do in Aspen in November

1. Get Outside

November is known for a few flurries throughout the month, but you can still find time to get outside! As long as you bundle up and make sure it’s not going to snow, you can still hit the trails in the beginning of the month. The Rio Grande Trail is always fun, and Maroon Creek Road closes to vehicles during this time. You can take a fat bike ride to Maroon Lake on it!

2. Time to Dine

If you’re looking to get out of the chilly November weather, head to one of the many restaurants in town to enjoy a delicious meal and a drink or two. Aspen is known for its incredible chefs and mixologists, and dining around town is a favorite pastime of locals and visitors alike. 

3. Visit the Aspen Art Museum

Spend some time at the Aspen Art Museum this November. This museum focuses on contemporary pieces that rotate throughout the year. See exhibitions of drawings, paintings, sculptures, multimedia installations, and electronic media.

4. Head to the Belly Up Aspen

Belly Up Aspen is one of Aspen’s most popular music venues and stays open all year round. Even though the venue is small, some very popular artists have played here in the past such as Passion Pit, Steve Aoki, and the Flaming Lips. See who is playing this November and get your tickets!
