The home of Red Rocks, Morrison is home to less than 500 people and boasts that (besides tourism) its major industry is margaritas. It is a thriving mountain community that offers rural living right outside the city. What you will find in Morrison is anything but the ordinary. For example, you can begin your stay in one of the luxurious bed and breakfasts "embedded" within Morrison, join the locals for dinner at one of downtown Morrison's cozy neighborhood restaurants, and cap the night off with a magnificent view of the starry sky minus the hum drum of urban existence.
The Morrison Heritage Museum, once one woman's nifty collection, provides insight into the pioneer days when Morrison was a backcountry oasis (due to being cut in half by Bear Creek, of course). Stop by the Natural History Museum to see how Morrison has contributed to dinosaur discoveries for the past 125 years. Afterwards, go antique shopping in downtown Morrison, a humble row of shops known for eclectic finds.
Boutique shops, biker bars, and local neighborhood restaurants line the streets of Downtown Morrison. The Fort, a fine-dining restaurant, sells more buffalo steaks than any other independently owned eatery in the United States.
Morrison is one of the few towns in the Denver Metro area that offers the ability to both enjoy a day hike and mingle in the downtown community, without ever having to step foot inside a car.
