Will be going to a concert at Red Rocks in early June and staying 3 days. What is the best area to stay and get a feel for Colorado?
Curious if you going to the Big Head Todd concert? That's the only one I know that has already been announced.
Just so you know, Red Rocks is in Morrison - nowhere near Colorado Springs. Do you want to stay near Red Rocks for convenience? You could stay in Morrison, Golden, Evergreen. There are many options. I Googled for Morrison lodging and Arrowhead Manor B&B came up. Looks nice: http://www.arrowheadmanor.com/
AS for "getting a feel" for Colorado what else are you interested in doing while here?
Actually it is John Prine and Levon Helms who will be playing there on the 13th. I am able to get tickets by presale. Don't need to stay so close to the Red Rocks. Prefer to explore some outdoors areas and hike some. But not for the whole day. Don't have a lot of finances to spend and don't mind driving within 2 hours.
I agree, I would stay in the Evergreen, Golden, or Boulder areas. Should allow you to be close to Red Rocks and have prime access to outdoor activities.
gottagoms...what type of music are Prine and Helms known for?
I'm not gottagoms but if you are looking to see a concert at Red Rocks I highly recommend Big Head Todd on June 6. We've seen them several times and they rock. They are local Colorado guys and very popular here so the crowd is also great fun. You can check them out on YouTube.
Levon Helms was the singer for The Band and John Prine has been around many years. There isn't a good definition exactly. He is a marvelous man with words and humor. Kinda, sorta, folksy(not) singer. He has a gravely voice and is amazing to see in concert.
decided to buy Big Head Todd tickets...loved their album with the song "Bittersweet" on it; hopefully my boyfriend will enjoy the show...
Bittersweet is one of my favorite songs. I'm sure you will enjoy the concert and I hope your boyfriend does too! : )
