The online travel behemoths at Expedia.com have just named Aspen, Colorado a top honeymoon destination in the United States, leading to a romance rush in this charming upscale ski town. We've been highlighting Aspen for years as a romantic, postcard-perfect honeymoon destination for couples' getaways, and it looks like Expedia agrees with us on all the biggest reasons: romantic activities like horseback riding through the mountainous Colorado countryside, phenomenal winter skiing during the colder months, nature trails galore, a thriving cultural and art scene, jaw-dropping landscapes, and ultra-romantic dining options.
What they didn't mention in the Expedia piece are Aspen's luxe spas, rustic chic accommodation in plush mountain lodges and high-end B and B's, and trendy bars and lounges where A-listers hang out during their time off the set and stage.
Speaking of accommodations, on the heel of the honeymoon news, Christie's has announced that they're opening a real estate brokerage to serve the Aspen area. With the arrival of a new real estate giant, couples can expect more options for lodging in the near future...think luxury lodges and upscale AirBnB's with roaring fireplaces and log cabin-style accents.
With this new exposure from Expedia, it's safe to say that Aspen will become a hotter honeymoon destination than ever. With everything it has going for it, in addition to being a popular vacation and romance hotspot for celebrity names like Elton John and Kurt Russell, we're surprised it's taken Expedia this long to get on board!
