  • The next vacation package takes our group of travelers to the beautiful city of Aspen in Colorado!
  • Here are the pros and cons of traveling to Aspen. Some highlights of the trip are breathtaking scenery and the many outdoor parks and mountains. Some cons are the unpredictable weather and busy skiing season, though these things can easily be avoided with careful planning. This vacation package can be taken in the summer or winter, so travelers are guaranteed numerous activities no matter what the weather is. I’ve divided this slideshow into two separate parts for the seasons.
  • Aspen Meadows resort is conveniently located by the Aspen Highland Mountains so Generation Y can get the most out of their skiing experience! They will adore the snow-covered mountains while staying warm in their elite hotel rooms.
  • Aspen Meadows has many features that make it stand out from other Colorado hotels! The transportation to nearby cities and ski slopes is included in the hotel package which saves a significant amount of money.
  • Aspen Meadows offers many dining choices for their guests. Generation Y will love a big buffet after their skiing!
  • Here is a list of activities sponsored by the hotel in the winter. Generation Y has many choices and can do these things individually or as a group.
  • The Aspen Slopes are the perfect place to ski in the winter! While staying at Aspen Meadows, all skiers will receive a 20% rental and equipment passes. All experience levels are welcome to ski, snowboard, or tube, and beginner classes can be provided.
  • This is a list restaurants located at the bottom of the Aspen Slopes. These restaurants are cheap and provide great food along with shelter after Generation Y’s long day of activities! Choose from pizza, wine, and famous bistro!
  • Aspen Art Museum features a grand gallery with indoor and outdoor exhibits. See sculptures, landscapes, paintings, and more!
  • Take an exciting tour of Colorado on a dashing snowmobile! Get a close-up look of the famous Maroon Bell mountains and ride through the River National Park.
  • Here is a list of activities sponsored by the hotel in the summer. Generation Y has many choices and can do these things individually or as a group.
  • Take an adventurous experience down Colorado’s finest rivers! This activity is perfect for large groups and all levels of aptitude are welcome.
  • This grill offers the rarest steak and prime rib! There are over 100 selections of wine, in addition to live entertainment.
  • Here is a trendy mall located in downtown Aspen. There are 100+ specialty shops to choose from in addition to many displays and scenery. This would be a great location to shop, sightsee, and relax.
  • The Wheeler Opera House is the “art and soul” of Aspen, featuring musicals, movies and live performances. Here Generation Y can see a great variety of shows starting at $9!
  • Here are a list of dining options near the Wheeler Opera House. Grab some delicious homemade food from Boogie’s diner or fresh warps from Big Wrap.
  • Ashcraft Ghost Town is a “haunted” historical mining town that will be sure to give Generation Y a scare!
  • Take an adventure in the sky with a hot air balloon ride! Generation Y will be able to get a perfect view of all bordering mountains and Colorado’s impressive scenery. This tour gives discounts to groups, so the $90 is a fair price.
  • Sample mouthwatering desserts at Paradise Bakery & Café! This tasty bakery features famous fresh-baked cookies, ice cream, yogurt and coffee! Generation Y will enjoy their custom pastries.
  • Here are the price totals per person. The food is rounded to an approximate value because it varies individually how much they eat.
  • This graph represents the data shown in the previous slide.
  • Here is the grand total per person, which stays within the given budget. This completes the Aspen, Colorado vacation package!
