Map / Directions Admissions:

  • Park Free
    Concert tickets vary

  • Parks: "Although the two trails within the park are short, they traverse some rough terrain so wear or bring good hiking boots/shoes for exploring."
  • Best Attractions & Activities: "Arrive early; there's one road in and it gets crowded. Expect to walk a ways to your seats. Comfortable shoes are a must, as are water (the park sits 6,400 feet above sea level) and layers of clothes for changing weather. You can bring in food but read the park's list of permitted and prohibited items first."
  • Sightseeing: "While attending a music performance shows off Red Rocks at its best, it's also a great place to explore during the day and when nothing is happening except stunning natural scenery."
  • Best for Parks Because: It's one of the top music venues on the planet, set in a park with inspiring geologic formations and trails.
  • Recommended as Best Attractions & Activities Because: It is Denver's one-of-a-kind star attraction and one of the most memorable days or evenings you'll ever spend.
  • Best for Sightseeing Because: Although it's not in Denver proper, it's part of the city's parks system. In other words, it's a patch of the city in the foothills.

  • Free Things to Do: "You don't have to pay concert admission to experience the magic of Red Rocks. Hiking around the park itself is free, and if there isn't a show going on, you can also check out the amphitheater itself – try running up and down the steps for a work out. Also take a look at the Colorado Music Hall of Fame on the grounds."
  • Best for Free Things to Do Because: The surrounding park is awesome to hike through even if you can't afford a show. Also check out the new Colorado Music Hall of Fame.
