  • Best Attractions & Activities: "Arrive early for concerts; there's just one road in. 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 one element of Red Rocks, this is also a great place to explore during the day and when nothing is happening except stunning natural scenery."
  • Free Things to Do: "Yoga on the Rocks is not free but is an experience any yoga lover should try. Tickets are available online only, no walk-ins permitted."
  • 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."
  • 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 located outside of Denver in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains, Red Rocks Park & Amphitheatre is a Denver city park.
  • Best for Free Things to Do Because: Red Rocks Amphitheatre is one of the most celebrated music venues in the world, but the park also offers hiking, walking, fitness training and exploring.
  • 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.
