Memorial Day is generally a time where people choose to celebrate with friends and family. They come together to celebrate those they love and those who they have lost. This is generally done with a backyard celebration with grilled meats and pool side drinks. Although this is a fun way to celebrate this holiday, we suggest you switch things up and try staying at a great vacation rental for in Colorado Memorial Day. One of our favorite spots is in the Aspen, Snowmass area!
Colorado Vacation Rentals
Many people believe that they are stuck with the same old hotel room when they visit Colorado, but this simply isn’t the case. We recommend you bring the comforts of home with you on your trip by booking a vacation rental for your Memorial Day vacation.
Vacation rentals are pretty simple and straight forward; you rent a whole house, condo, or townhome for the duration of your vacation. Unlike the small hotel rooms of traditional vacationers, vacation rental provides far more space and amenities for guests to enjoy. We are not talking about renting a room of someone’s home, but rather renting the entire home, condo, townhome, or in some cases estate for the entirety of your vacation. This includes any and all bonus upgrades that comes with the home. Your rental price often includes access to a full kitchen, game rooms, premier outside amenities, and immersion in the local culture rather than being trapped in the tourist bubble.
Perks and Amenities
There are many perks and amenities that come with renting a vacation home in Colorado, especially during Memorial Day Weekend. The biggest and most important feature of a vacation rental is access to a fully equipped kitchen. What many people don’t consider is the huge cost of feeding you and your family during a vacation. Since many people are restricted by their accommodations and forced to eat out for every meal their vacation budget disappears quickly. Since vacation rentals give you access to an entire home, many come with a kitchen that is stocked with plates, silverware, pots and pans, cups, and anything else you may need to cook a full meal. Having a fully stocked kitchen will allow you to cut back on your food spending and eat some of your meals at home rather than eating out. This money saving opportunity allows you more chances to enjoy Colorado’s local amenities with the money that you save, making your vacation that much better.
These perks especially ring true for Memorial Day Weekend. Since many are looking to barbeque and get outside for this holiday, many vacation rentals come equipped with outdoor patios, decks, and barbeque grills for your Memorial Day party. Since Colorado has some of its most beautiful weather during Memorial Day Weekend, many vacation rentals also come with an onsite pool. This amazing amenity is the perfect addition for your Memorial Day Weekend trip.
Memorial Day Events in Colorado
When you are staying in your amazing vacation rental for Memorial Day Weekend, make sure you consider one of these amazing events in Colorado. We especially think visitors should check out the Snowmass area to get the most out of your trip.
Aspen Mountain Views
Aspen Mountain has been the subject of some of the most recent upgrades in the Snowmass and Aspen area. The recent Aspen Mountain Summer Enhancement Plan was an upgrade of the area specifically designed to bring in summer visitors. These enhancements included things like a landscaping project for the Rocky Mountain flower gardens, picnic areas and signature kids play features. These kids play features included water play area, bean bag toss, a tree house, and several areas for lawn games. This project screams Memorial Day in Colorado fun for the whole family.
Snowmass Mountain Biking
What many people don’t know about the Aspen and Snowmass areas is the immense number of hiking and biking trails in the area. When the snow melts, it reveals some of the most amazing scenic views in the country. These hiking and biking trails are revealed each summer and are waiting to be explored. It doesn’t matter if you are an experienced mountain biker or just looking for some vacation fun, there are trails for all skill levels. We recommend checking out any of the local bike shops to rent some mountain biking gear and get out and experience these trails for yourself.
Summer Skiing for Your Colorado Memorial Day
A Memorial Day in Colorado often brings warmer weather that melts the snow and eliminates the spring skiing season. However, some of the end of spring storms will still roll in and provide some surprise snow overnight. Make sure you take advantage if you are lucky enough to experience this amazing phenomenon and ski in a t-shirt and shorts!
