red rocks amphitheater is a must to visit, it is very interesting to learn about how/ when/ why it was built and to see / touch the stones. It has a great museum along with a history of all the concerts/ artists they have had perform there.I would love to attend a concert there.

“Well worth the drive even if you aren't going for a performance”
Reviewed October 1, 2013

Red Rocks is both a park and the spectacular performance space within it. It is probably only about 20 minutes or so from Downtown Denver if traffic is moving and there is no road construction and from my perspective it is not to be missed.

This is an area west of the city where you are beginning the rise up into the Rockies and it is, as one might guessed, composed of dramatic red sandstone monoliths and other formations that you usually have to go to the desert southwest to see. I would advise you to drive to the parking lot at the very top above the amphitheater and then walk down to the terrace above to see this spectacular outdoor performance space and the beautiful view of the skyline of Denver in the distance with the Great Plains stretching out beyond.

There are actually a number of very good hiking trails (although not for people unaccustomed to hiking in hilly terrain) in the surrounding area with so many views that are framed by the sandstone formations that the whole place looks like it was designed.

“Just Awesome!”
Reviewed September 30, 2013

There is no better venue for seeing a concert and the view is amazing! There are hiking trails, restaurants and trading post to check out. Be aware that this venue is physically demanding to get to and the trails can be challenging. The altitude and steps to get into the amphitheater can leave you breathless.

“Fun place to see”
Reviewed September 30, 2013

Wish I could have gone to a concert here but it was nice just to see the place anyway.
Beautiful area.
Great place to workout (lots of steps and steep grades)

Don't miss the visitor's center at the very top!
We stopped at the Trading Post at the bottom before we walked to the amphitheater and then we missed the visitor's center so we had to walk all the way back up to get our stamped penny.
It cost us an additional 30 minutes so don't forget to see it before you head back down.
Really cool inside :)
