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 examine the collection at Museum of Colorado Prisons, and finally head outdoors with Royal Gorge Zip Line Tours.
