Go west, people, go west. It might not be the fastest, (it takes approximately 45 minutes more) but when I take this extremely scenic route from Fort Collins to Red Rocks, time usually isn't a factor. I've talked about this route before for access to Boulder and the west side of Denver, but it seems custom made to go see a show at Red Rocks. It's such an easy trip, taking you through the west side Longmont into the heart of Lyons. After you take Foothills Highway, you'll turn left on Broadway and soon will pass Pearl Street in Boulder. These are highlight tourist destinations and we can cruise through them as if they are our everyday. Planning an almost full day of activities is not only possible with this route, it's easy!
