About Carbondale, Colorado
In the greater Aspen area, Carbondale is known as the vibrant 'locals' community. Frankly, it's not hard to see why with plenty of places to fish, hike, bike, and golf, Carbondale ranks prominently in National Geographic Adventure's top places 'To Live and Play.'
Carbondale Offers a Wide Array of Culture, Dining, Shopping, and Nightlife Options
There's something for everybody. The local art scene is core to the culture of Carbondale, and home to local painters, photographers, sculptors, and more. Downtown comes to life on the first Friday of every month, when galleries, shops, restaurants, artists, and retailers unite to celebrate a community rich in culture.
The best part? It's all nestled against the panoramic views of the Elk Mountain Range, with unobstructed views of 13,000 foot Mt. Sopris. Carbondale is what you imagine when you dream of Colorado.
