Rolling Stone magazine calls it America’s best amphitheater. Musical legends including The Beatles, Jimi Hendrix, the Grateful Dead and the Rolling Stones have raved about it. And many a music fan will wistfully recount their first-ever Red Rocks concert.
Red Rocks Park and Amphitheatre's reputation may precede it, but there's no replacement for experiencing this acoustically impeccable, naturally stunning marvel of ochre sandstone yourself. Recently designated a National Historic Landmark by the National Park Service and Department of the Interior, the amphitheater is a top destination for Colorado residents and tourists from around the world. It’s just 15 miles from Denver and the Red Rocks Shuttle starts the experience with food & drink specials at the Thirsty Lion, offering round-trip options departing from Union Station. So make plans to see a concert, watch a film, hike, dine or geek out on history. We dare you not to fall for its rare beauty.
