We visited the Red Rocks Amphitheatre with our tour group and definitely think it is worth the visit as it is a very unique and historic spot.

Red Rocks Ampitheater offers so much more than simply an outdoor venue. The beauty that surrounds and encompasses the space will blow your mind. My family lives in Colorado and to be frank - even though I have been here at least a dozen times,...More

The visitors’ center catalogs all the acts to have played at Red Rocks. I found the memorabilia from past concerts very interesting. Access to the Amphitheatre is free on days with no concerts scheduled. Many people were exercising, walking their dogs and climbing the stairs...More

Awesome sights and an awesome cardio workout! Fresh air, great people and dogs. I park at the bottom and work my way up. Either side is a great cardio workout. I prefer the right side to jog down.

Yes! It's only about 20 minutes from the city & will be a nice break. Explore the amphitheater or do one of the fairly easy hikes nearby. There is also an INCREDIBLE museum onsite that is free & shows all the memorabilia... More

Agree, check with the venue. I believe all the handicapped parking is at the top. Don’t know if they would allow you down near the loading area. Go early if only to look around. It’s one of the most beautiful places!

Are you flying into DIA? If yes, what time and date do you arrive (10th) and what date and time do you depart (14th)? Knowing this will help us help you make the most of your short visit. Do you still want to try and go rafting? You will have limited time to do so.

I am a bit confused. Is the plan to split the time between Golden and Boulder? Overall I'd say if you want to see the mountains, stay in the mountains. If you want to be closer to Denver I'd look at the Evergreen area. If you want more of a quaint mountain town look at Frisco something more touristy look at Breckenridge, more upscale, look at Vail.
