Things to do in Cañon City
Welcome to Cañon City
The most popular base for exploring Colorado's Royal Gorge region, Cañon City is an outdoor adventurer’s paradise, served with a side of Wild West history. Thrill seekers can experience the gorge from the bottom on a white water rafting tour on the Arkansas River, while those who prefer to stay dry can cross with a gravity-defying walk across a suspension bridge. The Royal Gorge Route Railroad also tops the list of things to do in Cañon City, offering scenic rides through the canyon complete with wine and dining cars.
