Summer is on the wane, and I haven't written all the posts I wanted to about things to do between Denver and Boulder. I CAN'T let you miss out on visiting Red Rocks Amphitheater in Morrison CO.
One of my favorite things is to visit Red Rocks Amphitheater for any reason at all. We take out of town guests when there isn't even anything going on. We're never alone, it's a favorite local spot for hanging out, picniking, hiking and biking, and imagining yourself onstage in front of a huge crowd. Sometimes you actually get a spontaneous show of one kind or another!
There's a souvenir shop, restaurant, and visitor center where you'll be amazed at the performers that have found themselves at this stunning venue.
It's great to go at sunset, even though the amphitheater faces east. The darkening sky from this magnificent vantage point is an incredible show.
And that, of course, is one thing that makes it such a great place to go to a concert or to Film on the Rocks. The rock formations on both sides are massive and the ground drops down in front of you to the stage, then the geography spreads out below that. I don't believe there's any amphitheater like it anywhere else.
I don't have any pics from concerts, these are from Film on the Rocks. We went last year, to see Ghostbusters. The crowd was a hoot, the weather was perfect, the band that performed before the show was Opie Gone Bad. A REALLY fun evening.

I write posts on real estate issues and local events in the Denver metro area, especially those *communities between Denver and Boulder, as a public service. My hope is to give people an idea of the 'flavor' of our community, in case they're new or moving to the Denver area.
I am a residential real estate agent, happily helping folks buy a house or sell a house in the beautiful and friendly *suburbs northwest of Denver.
