If you’re a music fan, groupie, or musician yourself, you’re probably well aware of some of Colorado’s famous music venues. Probably the most famous is Red Rocks Amphitheater nested in the foothills just above Denver. There are more than a few ways to get there, including getting your own private van for you and your gang to cruise in before the show, drop you off at the front, and then be there to pick you up for the after party.
If it’s a show in the mountains you’re looking to get to, Peak 1 Express offers shared shuttles and private charters to Breckenridge, the Dillon Amphitheater, the Vail Valley and more.
