Canon City

Trip Planner USA  /  Colorado  /  Canon City

Climate Capital of Colorado

Part of Colorado's Royal Gorge Region, Cañon City straddles the Arkansas River. The city thrives because of the area's well-known whitewater rafting, mountain biking, and rock climbing opportunities that attract many outdoor enthusiasts (although it doesn't suffer from the same crowds as many of Colorado's natural hotspots). In addition to hosting world-class outdoor recreation areas, the city brims with historical delights, including a heritage railroad and charming downtown district that offers plenty of things to do. The streets of downtown, listed on the National Register of Historic Places, are lined with turn-of-the-century architecture, a diverse range of stores, and bustling restaurants and bars.

Where to stay in Canon City

There are a number of hotels and motels in Cañon City to suit a variety of tastes. Accommodations closer to downtown are more expensive, but visitors staying there can visit the city's most popular cultural attractions, restaurants, and bars on foot. Those who want to immerse themselves in the city's rich history can find several bed and breakfasts set in converted Victorian homes. For the real deal, look for one with period furnishings. You can take advantage of the city's surroundings by staying in a campsite or RV park on the outskirts of town.
