Question Concrete driveway stain/color

Bought a home that has a concrete drive and walkway that has a slight red tint to it. I assume there was a color put in the mix when it was poured in 2002. If I hose down the driveway with water the color really shows up nice. Is there anything I can do to get it to shine up or have the color stand out all the time? Pressure wash? Coating of some type?
Thanks.

A solvent based acrylic "wet look" sealer will make it look that way. If you can't use solvent based sealers in California, a water based acrylic would work too, but the colors won't be quite as vibrant..
