When taking stock of all the cities in the Denver Metro Area, there are so many to choose from, each with their own merits. But one that is especially unique and charming is Morrison. Morrison is nestled in the foothills about 30 minutes west of Denver just off I-70. It is home of the world-famous Red Rocks Amphitheater and boasts a cozy downtown with amazing dining and shopping.
When you look at homes for sale in Morrison, you get the feeling of living in the mountains since you are located right at the entrance of the Rocky Mountains on the Denver Front Range. But you still have all the convenience of a close commute to Denver and even a closer commute to Golden for work, shopping, and entertainment. In fact, the town’s slogan is “The Nearest Faraway Place.”
Many of the homes for sale in Morrison are situated on several acres for a private getaway in the foothills. There are plenty of newer construction homes that are going to have all the latest design details. But there are also luxury homes that look like cozy log cabins from the outside. Covered in snow, these homes look like a winter wonderland dream.
Morrison is the perfect place for outdoor enthusiasts because residents are close to trails, rock climbing, and more. There are also several important historical or geological sites like Dinosaur Ridge that preserves dinosaur footprints from millions of years ago. Red Rocks Amphitheater is a concert venue built for its natural acoustics in between the incredible red rock formations in the area. The biggest names in music come to Red Rocks each year, as well as other fun events like Film on the Rocks, Fitness on the Rocks, and Yoga on the Rocks.
