Originally known as the Garden of Angels, Red Rocks enchants visitors with ethereal scenery and top-notch acoustics 6,450 feet above sea level. The amphitheater geologically emerged from the ocean floor over millions of years, its walls housing fossil fragments of various dinosaurs, including plesiosaurs, mosasaurs, and several plush Barney dolls. The carbon-dated rock 'n' roll history of Red Rocks includes performances by The Beatles, Jimi Hendrix, and The Grateful Dead, who kept coming back to the venue year after year in search of their missing flip-flops. The sonic stone architecture of the venue has also led to dozens of popular live recordings, including U2’s Live at Red Rocks: Under a Blood Red Sky, John Tesh’s Live at Red Rocks, and Neil Young’s Road Rock Vol. 1.

Located about 40 miles west of Denver, Central City's downtown is mostly made up of buildings constructed between 1860 and the 1930s, and the downtown is now a federally designated historic district. As you walk along the streets, you can get a sense of the residents' high-rolling attitude after the gold rush. The stone Central City Opera House was built by some of the area's most highly regarded architects and once featured performances by P.T. Barnum's circus and Buffalo Bill. It's since been restored and still features shows. Next door is the Teller House, a massive hotel built in 1872; it has old-fashioned red-bricked façade with arched doorways. Today, visitors certainly come to the town to gamble, but it's worth it to visit some of the gorgeous mountain scenery nearby. Arapaho National Forest is six miles away. It's made up of 1.5 million acres ideal for hiking, biking, fishing, or mountain climbing. Read the Fine Print for important info on travel dates and other restrictions.
