2. Royal Gorge Bridge and Park
The scenery will take your breath away. If you have an issue with heights, the walk across will take your legs away. Most of the original buildings were destroyed by fire in June, 2013, many of which have been rebuilt in a more modern – and fireproof – way. Fortunately, the bridge survived the fire with minimal damage and remains a must-see for visitors to southern Colorado.
Also there: Visitor center, waterclock, theater, skycoaster, zip line, gondola rides, Royal Gorge Railroad.
