Canon City, Colorado is home of the Royal Gorge Bridge and Park. There are several things to keep you busy for days here in this historic little western town. Many of the downtown buildings are still intact, and are over 100 years old. The River Walk offers seasonal activities such as the Whitewater Festival, and Holy Smoke BBQ Cook-Off.

Marvel at awe-inspiring panoramic views from one of the world’s highest suspension bridges – hanging 956 feet above the Arkansas River! The Royal Gorge Bridge is an all-new experience! The park has a new 16,000 sq. ft. Visitor Center and will soon unveil one of the world’s longest single-span aerial gondolas, an over-the-gorge zipline and children’s play area. Combining beauty and entertainment, the Royal Gorge Bridge will open a 5,000 seat-amphitheater perched on the gorge.

Zip Line Tours, Helicopter rides, Train Ride under the Gorge, or raft down the Arkansas River for the ultimate adventure. Or come see the Museum of Colorado Prisons. A visit to the the Royal Gorge Region isn't complete without stopping and "doing time" in this historical cell house that was the original Women's Correctional Facility constructed in 1935.  We have it all here in Canon City, Colorado.

Giving back to our community, we've painted murals at the Canon City Rodeo Association, and donated time and supplies to finish the public restrooms there. We hosted an Exhibit Called "Art Of The Tattooist" at the Fremont Center For The Arts in Canon City with several other great name tattoo artists in Colorado.
