Part of Colorado's Royal Gorge Region, Cañon City straddles the Arkansas River.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at River Rafting & Tubing and Outlaw and Lawmen Jail Museum. Museum-lovers will get to explore Museum of Colorado Prisons and Royal Gorge Regional Museum and History Center. Venture out of the city with trips to Bishop Castle (in Rye), Mollie Kathleen Gold Mine (in Cripple Creek) and Victor's Gold Camp Ag & Mining Museum (in Victor). There's lots more to do: cruise along Skyline Drive, trek along Tunnel Drive, don't miss a visit to The Abbey Events Complex, and explore the striking landscape at Red Canyon Park.
