Autumn Adventure Awaits
Summer might be over, but that doesn’t mean the end of outdoor fun in Colorado. Fall is a great time to visit the state, especially the South Central region surrounding Canon City and the Royal Gorge. When the kids head back to school, crowds dissipate, hotel rates go down, and there are more opportunities to enjoy the attractions and sights in comfortable temperatures.
Canon City, a historic town of 16,000 residents, located about an hour Southwest of Colorado Springs, straddles the Arkansas River and has some of the best weather in the state, earning it the designation as the “Climate Capital of Colorado”. In fact, with an elevation of only 5,300 feet, and less than an inch of rain each month, fall is the perfect time to visit. And, although the region might not be as well-known as Denver, Colorado Springs, or the ski towns, there is an abundance of things to see and do all year long.
Colorado Jeep Tours offers year-round, guided tours in the Royal Gorge region that are not only fun but informative. Their off-road tours go from 3 hours to all day, and can be incorporated with other attractions, such as the Royal Gorge Railroad, a visit to the Royal Gorge Bridge, horseback riding, whitewater rafting, wine tasting, and more. Visit ColoradoJeepTours.com or call (719) 275-6339 for more information.
