Congratulations to this Colorado city! The best place to vacation for the FIRST time.

When you and your NEW significant start to plan your first vacation together, you may want to read this article. Aspen, Colorado took the top spot recently in a poll taken by the website  Best places to go on your very first vacation.

The other top five are very impressive, to say the least. So, it was a shock to see a Colorado city coming in at number one. Check out the other nine top finishers:

  • Las Vegas, Nevada
  • The Adirondacks, New York
  • Iceland
  • Costa Rica
  • Corpus Christi, Texas

That's pretty good company. But, why Aspen? Here's is what the article had to say about this ski resort paradise:

1. Aspen, Colorado.

For your first journey with your SO, you want to pick a place that will leave a picturesque memory in your mind. For this, look no further than Aspen, Colorado.

Aspen has a lot to offer. It’s a stomping ground for the rich and the famous, it’s breathtakingly beautiful, and it also offers world-class skiing and lodgings.

If you’re not into hitting the slopes, you can take a trip to Glenwood Hot Springs, just 40 miles from Aspen proper. Wellness enthusiasts can spend some time soaking in a hot bath and generally getting shamelessly pampered.

So, let's go!
