Winter Wishes Do Come True in the Royal Gorge Region
This winter, hit up some big attractions and discover a few hidden gems in Colorado’s Royal Gorge Region.
Give back to the kids in Fremont County this winter by donating to the Fremont County Boys & Girls Club, a safe, positive environment where youth can learn and play.
There’s a lot to see and do in the Royal Gorge Region. Beyond Cañon City, be sure to check out Florence and Penrose to the east and Cotopaxi and Howard to the west.
Florence is Colorado’s “Antique Capital” with dozens of antique shops lining the city’s historical Main Street. These antique shops are also part of the Frontier Pathways Arts and Antiques Tour, where you’ll find a full directory of shops.
Take a twilight departure on the Royal Gorge Route Railroad Holiday Train. The Holiday Train travels all the way through the Royal Gorge on round-trip journey. Railcars are decorated beautifully to celebrate the season, and the vibe is relaxed for guests of all ages.
Every Afternoon Tea experience at the Royal Gorge Mansion includes your choice of freshly brewed traditional and seasonal loose teas, alongside English treats, finger sandwiches, clotted cream and jam. In the grand tradition of English tea service, sandwiches are two-bite size and presented with a variety on the plate, along with a selection of made-from-scratch baked goods.
