Jefferson County

Morrison Bars and Restaurants

This town is perfectly situated at the bottom of winding Bear Creek Canyon. You cannot turn any direction but that you are presented with the most amazing beauty and phenomenal landscapes. And right in the middle of it all is the famous outdoor concert venue, Red Rocks Amphitheater. You have not experienced a concert in a special way until you have been to this venue as a VIP in your very own party bus or limousine. Once that excitement has been taken care of, you are going to love strolling down the main street strip which is filled with phenomenal restaurants, quaint shops and antique venues. There is an extensive trail system that leads past a reservoir. There is also a location that is perfect for geology or archeology buffs. We suggest making a stop at the visitor center first so the rangers can guide up on your exploration. The Morrison Heritage Museum is not far at all and this is where you will learn about the founding and the development of the area. If you prefer to see the sights via your own vehicle, that won't be a problem at all as you drive the Lariat Loop National Scenic Byway which is a 40 mile scenic byway established in the early 1920s to help locals experience the beautiful mountain landscapes. When you are ready to take a break, check out one of the locations below.

Portion sizes are just perfect and the scalloped potatoes are the perfect compliment. We have to mention the Prime Rib, it is cooked to perfection and is one of those meals that must be savored and slowly consumed. You don't want to miss this very special venue.
