Check out one of the best concert venues in the world
We're talking about Red Rocks, of course, and there is a way to squeeze in this must-see venue even if an actual concert isn't on the schedule. First, make sure there are no events happening. If everything's clear and it's not rush hour, this picturesque amphitheater is only about 20 minutes from downtown Denver. Park in the upper lot and take a quick walk to the top for sweeping views of the city. If you're feeling really ambitious, run down the stairs and walk onto the stage where basically every music legend from the Beatles to John Denver has performed. With another 20 minute ride back to Denver, this is pushing your limited time, but it’s rock n’ roll, so go ahead and push the boundaries.
Insider tip: Got a few extra minutes? Make a pit stop at the Visitor's Center at the top of the amphitheater to learn a little more about the history of this landmark and see some music memorabilia.
