Morrison

Tour Morrison, Colorado

Probably best known as home to the legendary Red Rocks Amphitheatre, Morrison is a quaint little town with a decidedly rowdy side.

Sitting at the base of Bear Creek Canyon, Morrison has a sweet and touristy Main Street, with a great selection of places to eat and a nice selection of souvenir shops and antique stores.

Of particular note just outside Morrison is The Fort, a highly praised and restaurant that specializes in wild game. Built as a replica of Bent’s Old Fort, which is in the southeastern part of the state, The Fort draws heavily on Western décor and Southwestern cuisine. There are dessert choices aplenty, and the wine list is extensive.

Outdoor enthusiasts will find a good bike path along Bear Creek that links with a bigger system and reservoir. There’s also Dinosaur Ridge for glimpses of a prehistoric kind – exposed footprints in the sandstone thrill everyone, and a good prelude to the self-guided tour is at the Natural History Museum in town. There are more exhibits at the Morrison Heritage Museum.

Morrison is really just minutes from Denver and close to other Front Range towns and cities, making it a great launch pad for virtually every activity or diversion along the I-25 corridor or in the mountains along I-70 or U.S. 285.
