Canon City

4.4
River Rafting & Tubing · Zipline · Scenic Drive
Climate Capital of Colorado
Part of Colorado's Royal Gorge Region, Cañon City straddles the Arkansas River. The city thrives because of the area's well-known whitewater rafting, mountain biking, and rock climbing opportunities that attract many outdoor enthusiasts (although it doesn't suffer from the same crowds as many of Colorado's natural hotspots). In addition to hosting world-class outdoor recreation areas, the city brims with historical delights, including a heritage railroad and charming downtown district that offers plenty of things to do. The streets of downtown, listed on the National Register of Historic Places, are lined with turn-of-the-century architecture, a diverse range of stores, and bustling restaurants and bars.
