Bonnie’s buzzing around the country this summer, and Bonnie Loves to Travel! I’ll be sharing with you all the wonderful spots in the United States and what to do when you get there.
This week it’s all about Rocky Mountain High, and Aspen, Colorado is the place to be! Aspen is home of the Food & Wine Festival, the Aspen Art Museum, International Music Festival, and the ballet.
On the Fourth of July, a parade runs down the old part of town down Main Street and fireworks are all over the Aspen mountains. Bike ride down to the Rio Grande Trail all the way down Valley to Basalt, and then cheat and take the bus back to town.
Make sure you stop at the Woody Creek Tavern, a must for everyone for a fabulous lunch and a way to recharge the battery.
Hike around Maroon Bells. It’s amazing, the most breathtaking part of the Rockies. You can even take public transportation! They have buses that take you right to the trailhead, and you can take beautiful pictures. You can even take a gondola up Aspen Mountain for a view of the entire Aspen Valley, and the view of the Continental Divide.
People go to Aspen to ski in the winter, but the summers are gorgeous! The music festival brings loads of people from all over the United States and Europe.
On Sunday afternoons you can go and sit on a blanket and have a picnic and listen to the visiting orchestra for free. Also, there are wonderful exhibitions at the Aspen Art Museum.
On July 22nd and 23rd, Aspen has a fabulous art festival for free, right in the center of town. There will be beautiful sculptures, photography, glass, painting, ceramics, jewelry, and fantastic food to boot.
Whether you’re in the cool Rocky Mountains and wearing those cashmere and suede jackets, or you’re in steamy Southern Florida wearing linens and lightweight cottons, all available at bonnieroseman.com, remember that it’s all about style!
