Climate Capital of Colorado

Part of Colorado's Royal Gorge Region, Cañon City straddles the Arkansas River.
Your day by day itinerary now includes Royal Gorge Route Railroad as well as Royal Gorge Zip Line Tours. On the 18th (Fri), examine the collection at Royal Gorge Regional Museum and History Center, don't miss a visit to The Abbey Events Complex, explore and take pictures at Skyline Drive, then relax and float downstream with Whitewater Adventure Outfitters, and finally tour in style with Royal Gorge Route Railroad. Here are some ideas for day two: get curious at Royal Gorge Dinosaur Experience, tour the pleasant surroundings at Tunnel Drive, then take an in-depth tour of Museum of Colorado Prisons, and finally kick your exploration up a notch at Royal Gorge Zip Line Tours.

Stunning Garden of the Gods Park scenery, blue skies and the glory of Pikes Peak-America’s Mountain have attracted visitors to Colorado Springs for more than a century.

There's much more to do: get in on the family fun at Cave of the Winds Mountain Park, take in the dramatic scenery at The Broadmoor Seven Falls, expand your understanding of the military at United States Air Force Academy, and cruise along Pikes Peak - America's Mountain.
