Local Area Attractions
Royal Gorge Bridge
One of America’s most spectacular attractions and is home to the world’s highest suspension bridge, spanning the Arkansas River at a height of 1,053 feet. Constructed in 1929 at a cost of $350,000, this engineering marvel was accomplished in just six months without a single fatality or major accident. Visit the Royal Gorge Bridge online for more information.
Enjoy a spectacular view at 14,110 feet above sea level. Also enjoy other attractions like the Pikes Peak Auto Hill Climb Educational Museum, Pikes Peak Cog Railway, Pikes Peak Summit House and Glen Cove and the Pikes Peak Highway. See the Pikes Peak website for further information.
Lake Pueblo State Park
The park is one of Colorado’s most popular water sports areas. Fishing, boating and swimming are in great abundance.
This area has been called "the Grandest Mile of Scenery in Colorado". You will pass between the towering pillars of Hercules, where the canon narrows to 42 feet. You will see amazing rock formations through the mountain foliage which leads to the cascading falls. A new express elevator which tunnels 170 feet into the mountainside will whisk you 130 feet up, through the mountain itself to the Eagle’s Nest Platform, with the best view of the seven separate falls as they splash and tumble 181 feet down the sheer granite cliff. Visit the Seven Falls website for more information.
