Colorado Summer Vacation Ideas and Things to Do
Royal Gorge Bridge and Park
4218 County Road 3A
The world's scariest skycoaster, one of the world's steepest incline railways and one of the world's longest single-span aerial trams, and The Soaring Eagle Zip Line… and that's just the start of what Colorado's classic destination has to offer. It's a true Colorado family vacation experience and it's only at the Royal Gorge Bridge and Park.


Summer time in Colorado is simply spectacular. Mountain towns at 8000 feet of elevation or more may hit temperatures of 84 degrees for two hours in August, but for most of the summer, temps are mild, the humidity is non-existent, the wild flowers are beautiful and the mountain sides appear to be painted a lush green. It is a well known saying in Colorado that we move here to ski in the winter, but stay here for the summers. Experience the incredible summer weather in Colorado and you'll know what we mean.
