If you only have a few hours to spend in Denver, but would like to get outside the city, this is a good choice. Nice views of the city and the mountains in the distance, especially at sunset (but sadly sometimes the views are limited by smog). But don't just go for the views. Check out their calendar of events... More

I went to a concert a Red Rock and was completely amazed by the sound. There really isnt a bad seat in the house but be prepared for long lines and WALKING! Parking seemed to be an issue the night we went because we were parked down half the mountain on a dark street and had to find our way... More

I'm an avid concert-goer, and first visited Red Rocks in 1996, spending 4 straight days there I was so enchanted. I try to go back at least once a year even though I live 4 hours north, and I have seen all types of music there and every time it seems to make the musicians perform at their highest ability....

A must see whether you are going to a concert or not. Venue and location are spectacular. Museum has a great music history for the audiophile. Well worth the time

This is a cool location just outside of Denver which if you are wanting a quick trip into nature without wanting to drive for hours or do any strenuous hiking, is well worth the visit.

The view from Red Rocks is beautiful! During the day or night. To stand at the top of the amplitheatre above the stage and see the city of Denver in the background is really incredible. There is a bit of a hike from the parking lots and it can be windy. There are gift shops at the top visitor center... More

Red Rocks is a terrific place to walk. First, challenge yourself by walking up and down the steps inside the amphitheater -- try it three or four times! Now, if you're suicidal, or younger than 35, try running up and down those steps -- me, I'd rather take a breather and watch others do it. You can easily spend a... More

Red Rocks is probably one of the most incredible and beautiful settings for an evening concert. Any performer who is worth their salt has performed here and given it rave reviews in terms of, not only the beauty of the place but also the natural acoustics provided by the massive red rocks on either side of the stage. This outdoor... More

Red Rocks is easily accessible via 70/470. There are multiple entrances so be sure to check in advance so you get to the right spot. I recently went with a friend- we took the kids out for a great little hike and lunch at the amphitheater. When it's good weather out this is an ideal excursion. I park at the... More

Drop everything and drive to red rocks. If you find yourself near Denver this is worth the 25 min drive. Most amazing views and pictures you may ever see in your lifetime. Need a place to workout? You'll also find a lot of people exercising here.
