Royal Gorge Route Railroad - Ride the Royal Gorge Route and experience one of the most spectacular railroads in the world! Photo by Ron Ruhoff. The train pauses on each run on the famous Hanging Bridge-a point so narrow in the 1,000-foot-deep canyon, that engineers hung a bridge from the walls to suspend the rails over the rushing waters of the Arkansas River.

 

The Royal Gorge Bridge is the world's highest suspension bridge. It's considered a legendary feat of engineering as inspiring as the Eiffel Tower. At a 1,053 feet above the canyon floor, it's the world's most massive gorge. The breathtaking panoramic vistas are as awesome as the Grand Canyon.

 

Manitou Cliff Dwellings - Extraordinary American Indian historical treasure.

 

Garden of the Gods - While exploring nearby locations, two surveyors came upon a beautiful area of sandstone formations. M. S. Beach, who related this incident, suggested that it would be a "capital place for a beer garden" when the country grew up. His companion, Rufus Cable, a "young and poetic man", exclaimed, "Beer Garden! Why it is a fit place for the Gods to assemble. We will call it the Garden of the Gods." It has been so called ever since.
