#52 Visit Red Rocks Amphitheater:
I’m a music lover and I seek out live music wherever we are traveling. Some venues are as famous as the performers who visit them. A highlight of traveling across the United States was finally visiting one of those – Red Rocks Amphitheater. I’ve wanted to visit this amazing place since I watched U2’s iconic “Sunday Bloody Sunday” performance from the concert film U2 Live at Red Rocks: Under a Blood Red Sky. We happened to be passing through there just before Mumford and Sons filmed “I Will Wait For You” at the same site. Although decades apart, you can see magic of Red Rocks continues when you watch these two performances. Visiting this place, even if you can’t catch a live show, is impressive. The amphitheater is open for visitors and attracts folks regularly for sightseeing and exercise. Just considering the historic past shows and the list of upcoming acts will be fun for music lovers. It’s a great hike and kids will love wandering around the seats. Go see it. Better yet…get tickets!
