Rolling Stone magazine calls it America’s best amphitheatre. 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.
5. GRAB A BITE AND DRINK UP THE VIEW
Built around two giant slabs of red sandstone, Red Rock’s Ship Rock Grill is worth a visit for the view alone. Better yet, grab a seat on the patio to dine at the edge of a mountainous panorama and order up some inventive Colorado-themed dishes like buffalo tamales smothered in house-made green chile or elk sliders with a side of crispy fries.
