Downtown Aspen, Colorado looks like a nice pet friendly destination. We haven’t been here, but our friends at GoPetFriendly.com have. They went downtown in the summer and were pleasantly surprised with how friendly the people were – pedestrians and shopkeepers alike. If you love going places with your dog and you enjoy shopping, you will love downtown Aspen.
The folks at GoPetFriendly were pleasantly surprised with how well the sidewalks were furnished with places to sit. So after a long day of shopping, sit outdoors with your dog at a cafe or coffee shop and relax. There are public benches too so you don’t need to feel obligated to buy anything (especially since you just maxed out your credit card while shopping).
Relax even further and catch a beautiful view of Aspen by riding on the Silver Queen Gondola. Believe it or not, they have a pet friendly sky car that you and your dog can ride in together to the top of Aspen Mountain. In nicer weather, once at the top you can hike, take a nature tour, catch a music performance, play disc golf, and more!
I don’t know about you, but getting to the top of Aspen Mountain for nature hiking is what makes me want to visit this place the most. Ty and Buster with GoPetFriendly are two lucky dogs!
