Lake Tahoe or Aspen in July

Jump to last reply

My husband and 3 kids (ages 12,11, and 9), love to travel to new places on summer vacation. We love the West, and all of the outdoor activities that go along with it (hiking, white water rafting, horseback riding, etc.) We are not campers, however, and prefer to rent homes with a view off of VRBO. One of our favorite places we've gone recently was to Jackson Hole, WY and Yellowstone National Park. Our week was action-packed, and the beauty of the area was unparallelled. We also enjoyed strolling around the town of Jackson Hole at night for dinner and ice cream, and of course, kids' souvenirs.

I have just started researching our next trip, and two places seem very appealing to me: Somewhere in Colorado like Aspen, with possible daytrips to Telluride and Arches Nationals Park in Moab (probably an overnight here), or Lake Tahoe with a drive to Yosemite. In between adventures, we also like a vacation destination with a nice, walkable town, with plenty of family-friendly restaurants. I've seen spectacular photos from both places, but to be honest, I'm currently leaning towards Aspen.

I'd love your input on both places, so I can make the best decision for our vacation 2012. Thanks so much!
