Things to do in Aspen – It’s the Off-Season, Now What?

Now that off-season has arrived, some of us are looking for interesting things to do in Aspen, Colorado this time of year.

Many fill the void created by the end of skiing, snowboarding and other winter-oriented activities by leaving town to go on their own vacations. Those who can afford it, time-wise and budget-wise, often go on fanciful vacations to warm-weather locations like various places in Mexico, or even closer to home, like Moab, Utah. Others take the opportunity to go back “home” to visit family.

For me, however, it’s “birthday season” – time to head to Palisade, Colorado to visit my kids and grandkids – Abraham in March, Thomas in April and Sidd in May! It also gives me the opportunity to see my stepson’s band, Dualakoo, play once again in that Grand Junction center of the music universe, Cruisers Bar on Horizon Drive.

Aspenites and visitors were treated to some great live entertainment a couple of weekends ago. We heard some great hard rocking music in the downtown core – one of the best Aspen Colorado activities one can experience!

As it was nearing the end of this ski season, and having been for the most part cooped up for the winter, my girlfriend and I were eager to take in some late-season musical entertainment and decided to check out the Bud Light Spring Jam concert in downtown Aspen.
