Parks & Nature

Red Rocks is a natural amphitheater, with great acoustics because of the rock formations. All the famous musicians have played there - but it's also a great when there's no concert, because the view of Denver is extraordinary from there. I like to take a lunch and soak in the scenery...

This is SUCH a charming little museum (free, the last time I was there), and it's a chance to see what it would've been like to live in the area during two times in history: the 1860s and the 1890s. We walk through schools, homes and farms - that are actually still being run exactly the way they were back in those days.
