If you’re up for seeing the Highest Suspension Bridge in the United States then a trip to Canon City, Colorado should be on your to-do list. Just a few miles west of Canon City you’ll have the opportunity to walk or drive across this amazing feat of engineering. The original bridge was built in 1929, but don’t worry – there have been plenty of upgrades and modifications throughout the years!

The bridge spans an amazing 1,258 feet over the mighty Arkansas River and it’s quite a sight to see! Don’t jump though… it’s 955 feet down to the river!

If you’d like a better view, you can ride the Gondola across! Or for the thrill-seekers out there, try the Zip-Line or the Sky Coaster! That’s a solid ‘no thank you’ for me, but I did enjoy a hike out to a precarious looking spot where I could see the river rushing below!

For more information about the Royal Gorge Bridge be sure to check out the information provided by “Only In Your State” and have a great visit!
