Climate Capital of Colorado

Part of Colorado's Royal Gorge Region, Cañon City straddles the Arkansas River.
You've now added WhiteWater Bar & Grill to your itinerary.

Keep things going the next day: admire all the interesting features of Skyline Drive and then see the interesting displays at Museum of Colorado Prisons.
