Come visit the Royal Gorge Region and experience the perfect combination of outdoor adventure, old west history, and small-town hospitality.
While the area is less than an hour’s drive from Colorado Springs and Pueblo, you really feel like you are going back to an earlier era, one without all the crowds and hurry. This is a place where you can slow down and window shop the Main Streets in Canon City or Florence. Or, speed up with a paddle in your hands through the Class III to V rapids of the Arkansas River in the Royal Gorge.
The possibilities for outdoor adventures are made even better by the superb year-round climate that is warmer and drier than both Denver and Colorado Springs.
Come visit the Royal Gorge Region where world-famous attractions like the very popular Royal Gorge Bridge & Park, the exceptional Royal Gorge Route Railroad, and the pulse-pounding whitewater in the Royal Gorge await.
