Despite the fact that I don't think it makes sense on the Western Slope, Denver is one of the top cities in America for day trips. With that in mind, you may be thinking about making one of those day trips during the upcoming summer, since that's the perfect time to travel in Colorado. But what will you do once you get there?

Luckily, the Levitt Pavilion thought ahead, and they've put together an entire summer concert series. The best part: this concert series is free, which I think I'm already on record of saying is one of my favorite four-letter words.
