Royal Gorge Bridge is the world’s highest suspension bridge. The bridge hangs more than 1,000 feet above the Arkansas River near Canon City, Colorado. The location boasts the world’s longest single-span aerial tram and the steepest incline railway. For spectacular views available no where else, walk or drive across the bridge itself (approximately a quarter of a mile long) or hop on the tram or railway. You can also visit Royal Gorge Park, an amusement park with 21 rides as well as dining and shopping options. The more adventurous visitors will appreciate guided recreation options like class 5 rapid whitewater rafting excursions, rock climbing, four-wheeling and more.

A choose-your-own-adventure type destination, Royal Gorge Bridge is an ideal day trip for both families and adrenaline-driven thrill seekers.
