Most people agree that Aspen is Vail's glitzier neighbor. The streets are charming and it has that small-town feel, but with high-end shops such as Prada, Gucci, and Louis Vuitton lining the streets. The dining options are equally chichi, with numerous gourmet restaurants frequented by a glamorous crowd. Celebrity sightings are normal, particularly during the winter peak season, from November to March. Aspen's Rocky Mountain setting is picturesque, and there are four mountains catering to all levels of skiers. The summer months are less crowded, but the warm weather still draws visitors looking to fish, hike, golf, and check out the popular summer music festival.
