Posted on August 22, 2022 by Claude Champany

What does Canon City have to give you? Well think about the worlds highest suspension bridge. This bridge spans the Royal Gorge, built-in 1929 the views out of this bridge of the gorge here are breath taking.

But before you imagine it really is only sitting on a bridge for a couple minutes looking down at the Arkansas River, you have one more thing coming. Think about a breath taking plunge off the Royal Rush Skycoaster, you will end up free falling at 50 mph out over 1200 feet above the Arkansas River.

Of course you'll want to go for a ride on the world's steepest Incline Railway at 45 degrees. Here you go directly to the bottom of the gorge and start to see the rushing river and wave to the rafters going by. Rafting, you need to go rafting? Just see among the may rafting companies in your community. You can also ride over the gorge on a higher wire, in the event that you dare.

Don't forget to take the youngsters and kids in mind to the petting zoo, there you will notice elk, bison, including a distinctive white bison, big horn sheep and much more. In addition they offer free burro rides.

Then there's shopping, a lot of places to obtain something good to consume, from ice cream, cotton candy, funnel cakes to BBQ and hotdogs.

If you're into camping, there are many places in your community to camp or park your RV.
