Kick off your visit on the 19th (Mon): admire the landmark architecture of The Abbey Events Complex, examine the collection at Museum of Colorado Prisons, then let the river carry you with a rafting and tubing tour, then snap pictures at Royal Gorge Bridge and Park, and finally admire all the interesting features of Skyline Drive. On the 20th (Tue), you'll have a packed day of sightseeing: do a tasting at The Winery at Holy Cross Abbey, then head outdoors with Royal Gorge Anglers, and then tour the pleasant surroundings at Tunnel Drive.
