Instagrammable Aspen

Most visitors will limit their Instagram feeds to the fantastic mountain views in and around the city. Although a few of our shots will show off the tremendous beauty of the scenery, most will highlight the gems within the town. 

Although the city promotes an air of elegance and lacks the trendy murals and street art Instagrammers love, there are a few great local spots for unique camera shots. These places can all be found within Apen’s city limits – the list doesn’t include iconic sites outside Aspen, such as Maroon Bells.
