A playground for the rich and fabulous, Aspen offers more than just good celebrity spotting. Yes, this is a star-studded skier's paradise, but it's also a great, year-round, romantic outdoor destination with its stunning scenery, top-notch hiking, superb accommodations and busy nightlife. Fifteen miles southwest of Aspen lies Maroon Bells which offers a lake, alpine meadows and limited vehicle access. Hike the trails, breathe in the mountain air and take in the stunning scenery. Glenwood Hot Springs, just 40 miles northwest of Aspen, is a perfect romantic indulgence for wellness devotees. You can also get your romantic Western adventure fix via a visit to T Lazy 7 Ranch, which celebrated its 75th anniversary in 2013, with horseback rides and camping trips. Whether you choose to curl up in your lodge in front of a roaring fire, take a romantic carriage or sleigh ride, or live it up at the myriad pubs, clubs and country and Western bars, it's all here in Aspen.
