Red Rocks Amphitheatre is an outdoor concert venue in Morrison, Colorado, about ten miles west of Denver. Though it’s hosted concerts since the first decade of the 20th century, the amphitheatre was built by the Works Projects Administration and the Civilian Conversation Corps between 1936 and 1941.
The concert season is only in the summer, between April and September, but Red Rocks Park is open all year long. People who like to do this thing called “exercise” run up the steep steps of the amphitheatre, which sits at 6400 feet above sea level.
Because of its peerless acoustics, Red Rocks is one of the greatest places to see a show.
