In 1929, Cañon City authorized the building of the Royal Gorge Bridge, which at 1,053 feet above the river, is one of the highest suspension bridges over water in the world. The bridge forms the heart of Royal Gorge Bridge and Park, a theme park owned and operated by the city. There is more than enough fun to keep your family entertained for an entire day at the Royal Gorge Colorado Springs region.

In the summer months, whitewater rafting is also a very popular activity in the Royal Gorge.
