Simply put, Red Rocks Amphitheater is one of the best places on Earth to take in a concert. This amazing outdoor venue is part of Denver history. The first concert was preformed in 1906 when it was privately owned. It was purchased by the city of Denver in 1927 for $54,133, just another example of what a great investment real estate is! Red Rocks opened its doors to the public in June 1941.
Red Rocks is more than just concert venue, you can stop in all year for a bite to eat. Built around two massive boulders both inside and on the patio, Ship rock grille, located in the Red Rocks Visitor Center, features a delectable menu matched only by the stunning scenery. Spend a sunny afternoon on the deck surrounded by breathtaking vistas and the occasional wildlife. On concert nights, make reservations for a pre-show dinner to complete an unforgettable evening.
If you are in the mood to exercise in style, Red Rocks is a great option. There are several groups and boot camps around town that use the stairs and structure for fitness. If you are going to train you may as well do it with a view! The park is open 7 days a week with some restrictions. If you don’t want to run up and down the stairs, Yoga on the Rocks is also an option. For prices and scheduling go to:
Don’t forget to stop by the Colorado Music Hall of Fame when you are at the park. The showcase of performances throughout the history of Red Rocks is awe inspiring. From the Beatles performance in 1964 to U2 in 1983 Red Rocks is a part of music history. The Hall of Fame is located at the top of the venue.
The best reason to go to Red Rocks is for the live music. Every show I have seen in this incredible Amphitheatre has a magical quality to it. The natural beauty of Colorado and the open sky produces an acoustical masterpiece that you can’t find anywhere else. This summer is loaded with artists and now is a great time to check out the schedule and grab tickets for a band you like. You can see the full schedule at:
