This was a tough decision, but our top place to visit in Denver would have to be the Red Rocks Amphitheatre. It is a rock structure that doubles as a theatre with live concerts! While visiting Denver, going to a concert should be on your list of to-dos (right after a sports game!) The theatre puts on both public and private concerts. It is not only a cool place to look at, but it is full of history as well! Red Rocks has been putting on shows for more than 100 years now, and is definitely a place you won't forget.
