Order Confirmation - Royal Gorge Region Visitors Guide

    If you are already in the Royal Gorge Region you’ve made a great choice among many beautiful and fun Colorado destinations. If you are just now considering a visit, we hope to see you soon. Base your Royal Gorge Region adventure in Cañon City, the “Climate Capital of Colorado”! Families and visitors of all ages will find there are loads of options to enjoy the area’s amazing scenery from your vehicle, aboard a historic train, or a guided jeep tour. Take in the sweeping mountain vistas from America’s highest suspension bridge, nearly 1,000 feet (305 m) above the Royal Gorge, or from the deck of a beautifully appointed cabin, while you enjoy a glass of wine from our local, award-winning winery. Many visitors consider the Arkansas River our finest natural asset. We are America’s top destination for whitewater rafting, and anglers relish the fact it is the country’s longest stretch of Gold Medal Trout water. Up for a challenge? Check out our mountain bike trails, or world-class rock climbing. There is an exhilarating zipline across the gorge, plus classic and extreme courses above treetops and canyons. Don’t forget to visit the region’s museums, history and heritage sites. Downtown Cañon City and Florence are both hidden gems offering quaint, locally-owned shops, farmer’s markets, restaurants, breweries, and annual festivals. Learn about dinosaurs that roamed this land 150 million years ago through outstanding indoor and outdoor exhibits and interpretive trails. Plan for more than a day to experience all the Royal Gorge Region has to offer. Our lodging options include hotels, motels, cabins, B&B’s, full service and forest campgrounds, or even glamping! We look forward to welcoming you to the attractions and activities that await in the Royal Gorge Region. Fremont County Tourism Council
