If you’ve ever had dreams of disconnecting from your computer and turning off your cell phone, you’re not alone.

Here in the mountain-fresh air, new residents will find an amazing array of luxurious properties in Aspen real estate. You’ll be dazzled by the majestic peaks, exceptional weather, and friendly residents. Just ask Justin Addison at Coldwell Banker to help you find the best property to enjoy living in Colorado. Whether you’re on your luxurious patio listening to the gentle rustle of the nearby Aspen leaves or floating along the Roaring Fork River, you’ll be far removed from the honks, whistles, and jarring cell phone rings of urban living.

You’ll feel healthier

Living in Colorado will certainly promote a better fitness routine. It’s no mistake that Denver, Colorado Springs, Boulder, and Fort Collins are routinely at the top of the list of the healthiest cities in the U.S. You’ll be encouraged to join these outdoor enthusiasts with their health-conscious culture. As you find yourself shredding the trails in Aspen, you’ll soon discover that you’ve forgotten the world’s problems. You won’t need to stand in front of a computer screen to get your daily workout.

Year-round outdoors activities

There’s never an indoor season in Colorado. The state offers outdoor fun all year long. When the wildflowers bloom on Aspen Mountain, you can hike along the trails. Whitewater rafting in the spring picks up due to the snowmelt. Outdoor festivals begin to be announced. As summer approaches, the temperature will rise. You might want to jump into an alpine lake to cool down. For more strenuous activities, try rock climbing, mountain biking, or backpacking into the foothills.

If you want to enjoy slope-side living, look for Aspen condos for sale. You’ll be able to buckle up your boots and be one of the first to tackle the well-groomed corduroy slopes before the tourists.

Appreciate wildlife

From its mountains to its plains, Colorado offers a tremendous opportunity to view wildlife up close. It’s no wonder that wildlife naturalists head to Colorado to disconnect from the world. There’s the world-famous Rocky Mountain National Park, which offers countless opportunities to see coyotes, black bears, moose, pikas, and elk. Mountain lions, lynx, and bobcats have also made their home in Colorado.

If you want a fantastic vantage point of wildlife, look for homes for sale on Red Mountain. Near Aspen, you’ll find Red Mountain ranches and finely crafted contemporary stone luxury homes with all-encompassing views. You can unwind in your outdoor living space and enjoy the breathtaking views and perhaps see wildlife in your own backyard. Look for a kit fox or a porcupine making tracks past your home. You’ll spot raptors and songbirds from your porch.

Trips from your luxurious Aspen home will bring you to different environments throughout the state. On the eastern part, you’ll find high plains, expansive grasslands, and lots of prairie dogs. On the western and southern portions of Colorado, you’ll find scenic natural sandstone arches, canyons, and reminders of the area’s Native American population. Glittering alpine lakes might make you think you’re in Switzerland or Austria.

Discover new worlds

Perhaps you want to disconnect from the world, but you don’t want your mind to lag. Here in Colorado, you’ll find museums where you can learn about dinosaurs, mining, trains, cowboys, and even giant bugs.

Central to your new Aspen real estate are the Aspen Art Museum, the Holden Marolt Mining & Ranching Museum, and the Wheeler/Stallard Museum. The Aspen Art Museum holds an eclectic variety of revolving exhibits to open your mind to new international artists. Located on the former Holden Mining and Smelting Company facility on the western edge of Aspen overlooking a small creek, the Holden Marolt gives visitors an insight into both the booming silver mining and ranching past of Aspen. The Wheeler/Stallard is set in an 1880s brick structure built in the Queen Anne architectural style. In 1975 it was placed on the National Register of Historic Places. Here the Aspen Historical Society has its offices shared with exhibits on the first floor of a Victorian Aspen home, and the second-floor gallery features rotating exhibitions to explore area history.

Take a trip to Denver to visit the Denver Art Museum, the Museum of Nature and Science, Forney Museum of Transportation, and Wings over the Rockies Air and Space Museum.

There are even more unique museums around the state. For example, check out the Colorado Springs Pioneer Museum, the Buffalo Bill Museum, and Grave, Colorado Ski and Snowboard Museum, and the National Mining Museum.

Take in a sporting event

It’s one thing to watch a sporting event on tv; it’s quite another to be there in person. In Colorado, you can shout, cheer, and clap for your favorite team along with the rest of the crowd.

No matter the season, there’s always a sporting event to attend. In Aspen, the Winter X Games take place each January, along with the World-Cup ski races held at Beaver Creek in December. Colorado is also home to famous ultramarathons, bike races, skijoring, and a ton of recreational leagues for residents to explore.

Travel from Aspen and the region to Colorado’s capital city to see first-rate matches with the Denver Broncos football, Colorado Rockies baseball, Denver Nuggets basketball, Colorado Avalanche hockey, and Colorado Rapids soccer.

You’ll be pleased to become one of the newest fans since the Broncos have won the Super Bowl three times, the Avalanche have won the Stanely Cup twice, and the Denver Nuggets have made the playoffs with regularity the last few years.

If you’re a car racing fanatic, you’ll find NASCAR racing action at Colorado National Speedway. Golf has always been perceived as a sport to disconnect from the outside world. Here in Colorado, pro golf (PGA) tournaments are held at Castle Rock’s Castle Pines Golf Club.

Being located in horse-loving Colorado, you’ll also find exciting rodeo matches, barrel riding, and equestrian events. In nearby Snowmass mountain, there’s a weekly rodeo with bull riding and team roping.
