Vacation in Aspen

What vacation destination in the United States do you think is the most popular? Is there one place that stands above all others; when you think about an all American vacation? I know I have several places in the U.S. I would like to visit one day. Places like Hawaii or Orlando would make a nice vacation destination but are usually very crowded during peak times and you can almost feel to rushed when visiting this high traffic areas. Areas like Aspen, Colorado are higher end vacation destination spots. You can ski in the winter and hike and bike in the summer. You can even find amazing homes for rent through aspen rentals that are located close to all of the main shopping areas of the village. The big cities like Los Angeles and New York get their fair share of tourists coming in for vacations. If you don’t like the big cities; then you probably prefer the mountains or beach for a family vacation. I like going to the beach and this seems like a true vacation to me, but I don’t complain when I do travel to the mountains for a vacation.

I’m not really sure where the top U.S. vacation place may be in America. I’m sure Las Vegas, the Grand Canyon, and Orlando would be high on the list. I know I would prefer to go to Grand Canyon out of those 3 choices, but I would like to see all 3 some day. I know someone has a list some where of the top vacation spots in America and I bet there is a number one destination for travelers.
