While the Pike’s Peak Gold Rush brought the first settlers to Canon City, the city has grown since its Wild West origins and is now known for its abundance of wild, natural beauty.
This beauty is celebrated with breathtaking views at Royal Gorge, along the Royal Gorge Route Railroad, on scenic drives, and in public parks. The history of the area is still recognized, and as such, the Canon City Downtown Historic District was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1983. A visit to the area combines the old with the new and immerses visitors in this adorable city’s history and beauty.
