The town hosts a series of popular holiday music events, the shopping streets are well-attired for the season with tasteful displays of holiday cheer that encourage wintery strolls, and there’s a rustic Colorado-country vibe to Aspen’s Christmas celebrations that makes for memorable holiday vacations.
