Morrison Red Rocks - But what is Colorado without a trip
to the beautiful Red Rocks Amphitheatre? Located in the
small town of Morrison, Colorado, Red Rocks Amphitheatre
is open year-round, regardless if a band is rocking out. It is a
short, yet steep walk up to the top, but once you are there you
can picture artists such as The Beatles, Jimi Hendrix, or The
Grateful Dead once performing amongst the rocks.
Extend Your Stay
Aspen Slopes - Even in April! - If you have a little more time
to spend, then head to the mountains and find solitude in
towns such as Aspen or Breckenridge. These mountain towns
offer no lack of shopping, dining, or ski resorts. Home to the
winter X-Games since 2002, Aspen is known as the epitome
of snow sports. If you are trying to get a few runs in yourself,
feel free to rent daily gear from any of the local ski shops.
Depending on the year’s snowfall, Colorado’s slopes tend to
stay open until Mid – May, which sometimes means hitting
the slopes in shorts. If skiing on fresh powder isn’t quite your
thing, feel free to cozy up in one of the ski lodges to enjoy a
warm mug of hot chocolate, or a local craft beer.
I believe the point has been made that there is plenty to see
when visiting Denver, and that the list just keeps on growing!
While exploring the area, make sure to drink plenty of water
and take in the beautiful mountain views that surround
you. Once again, welcome to the Mile High City, and we look
forward to seeing you at NAID 2019.
The majesty of Denver has made its way into quite a few

you’re there. In the meantime, listen to these good ole
