People often drop into the little town of Morrison, Colorado as it’s on the scenic byway, The Lariat Loop, a route through some of Denver’s most stunning mountain ares. Visitors also come for the natural outdoor concert venue, the Red Rocks Amphitheater. Morrison itself is situated in Jefferson County, Colorado, at the foot of Beer Creek Canyon and is a pretty little town with just one small strip of Main Street (yet that strip is full of antiques, unique stores and restaurants) and is well worth a visit.
If you’ve booked to see a show, or even if you haven’t, you’ll want to take in the wonder of Red Rocks Amphitheater. This scenic attraction is a beautiful, atmospheric place to rock out to one of the famous bands that play here during the spring, summer, and fall. Two enormous 300-foot red monoliths naturally form the stage; they have been part of this landscape for time immemorial. The views across to Denver are breathtaking and if you’re lucky enough to have tickets for a sunset performance, you won’t be disappointed. There’s also a visitor's center with a performers hall of fame. Runners and hikers also visit Red Rocks park for exercise and there are numerous trails for hiking and biking.
Dinosaur Ridge is a fabulous trail where you can marvel at more than 300 preserved footprints and exposed fossils of the dinosaurs that once roamed these lands. The Morrison Natural History Museum is also bursting with natural artifacts and hands-on exhibits and activities. Kids will love the Tiny Town Railroad where you can hop aboard a steam engine and enjoy the park views from your train as well as explore tiny kid sized houses and buildings.
The best time to visit Morrison is in the summer during the Red Rocks concert series, or during shoulder months for excellent hiking weather.

— My favorite thing about AllTheRooms is that it combines both rentals and hotels available so you can see an entire view of what is available in a certain area. I was able to see listings on AllTheRooms that I never even saw on other travel sites!
— The great thing about AllTheRooms is their ability to cover all bases. If you are travelling solo, with a partner, friends or even a larger family. There is something there for everyone and that is a hugely powerful tool that I believe it boasts moreso than competitors.
