Red Rocks Park & Amphitheater is about 15 miles from the city center, but it's worth the ride as it's Denver's most revered attraction — and if you don't have a car, a shuttle will take you here. Red Rocks is a live music destination and city park owned by Denver. The name comes from the striking red sandstone rock formations along the trails that also form the walls of an open amphitheater.
During the season, this place attracts major live music performers every week and is best known for its acoustics. Music lovers will want to check out the Colorado Music Hall of Fame, which tells the story of Colorado's great musicians.
