Amphitheater
“If you can catch a Red Rocks concert while you're here, you won't regret it. Hands down the best concert venue! You get to watch music and watch the sun set on the city. If you can't get tickets for a concert you can still visit, walk the stairs, see the view, or do a hike nearby.”

“Established in 1874, this gateway town to the Front Range, is an excellent excursion for killing time if you are too early for check in. There are several great restaurants and fun shopping. Try the Morrison Inn for Tex-Mex cuisine and look for the napkin on the wall my husband drew of the kitchen staff over 25 years ago:). Morrison is a hop, skip and a jump to Dinosaur Ridge, The Morrison Natural History Museum (where they have discovered a new species of Brontosaurus) or Dinosaur Ridge. For a day trip adventure, start in Morrison and then wind your way up Hwy 74 out of Morrison to Evergreen, Co. From there use Maps or Waze to guide you to Conifer where you can stock up on groceries and supplies before heading to the cabin. (make sure you understand where you are going! Cell service gets spotty in the canyons!) Or try this trip the other way around and have breakfast at The Cow Eatery!”
