The Sights to See

Fox Hollow is located in a prime spot to enjoy the nearby golf course, or nearby Bear Creek Lake Park for fishing, horseback riding, and even archery.

There are many other sights to see around the Lakewood area too, perhaps one of the most notable being Red Rocks Amphitheater.  This truly awe inspiring music and event venue is located a short 20 minute drive to the west of Lakewood.  Hosting huge name performers such as The Flaming Lips, Sound Tribe Sector 9, Tom Petty, Foster the People, The Beatles, and scores (to use a musical term) of other talented performers and bands, this single location could serve as the catalyst of your trip to Colorado.

In addition to the Red Rocks Amphitheater and Park, other notable Colorado sights in the Lakewood area include the Coors Brewery located in nearby Golden, and the Pepsi Center, affectionately referred to as The Can, which is located eastward just at the edge of Denver.  Whether you decide to immerse yourself in nature or lose yourself in the Red Rocks music scene, a vacation to Lakewood holds the potential to be unforgettable.
