Add Adventure to your Valentine’s Day
There is no shortage of adventures available in the Royal Gorge Region. From scenic mountain drives of Colorado to our thrilling rides at Royal Gorge Bridge and Park, you can pack in the adventure with your special Valentine.
It isn’t unheard of that a typical Colorado date takes place in the outdoors. Watching the sky marvelously turn colors during a sunset or exploring new trails in the mountains makes for a memorable experience together. At Royal Gorge Bridge and Park, you can build lifelong memories with our thrilling rides, expansive views, and more.
First, take a heart-pumping stroll together across the Royal Gorge Bridge, the highest suspension bridge in North America. If you have been searching for a beautiful spot to pop the big question, the bridge is truly one of the most unforgettable locations. We have seen several couples become engaged on our Royal Gorge Bridge!
Whether you are daring enough to peek over the edge below to the Arkansas River or need to walk in the middle of the bridge to avoid the sight of the depths, crossing the Royal Gorge Bridge will be a memory you won’t forget.
Grab a meal and a warm drink from our Café 1230 next to the visitor’s center. We also offer a full bar with local Colorado beers on tap. Then step into our Aerial Gondola, included in your daily admission. The only sound you will hear on the Gondola is the gentle glide and the wind swooping through the Royal Gorge. The Aerial Gondola features comfortable seats inside and floor to ceiling windows so you can sit back and enjoy the incredible views together. This peaceful ride will have you reminiscing with your loved one for years to come!
Conquer the Royal Gorge Together
If you are searching for the perfect experience to gift your outdoorsy Valentine, our Via Ferrata experience in the Royal Gorge is hard to beat. With a hike down into the gorge, traversing and scaling the granite walls of the gorge, a mini suspension bridge, and more will have your adventurous Valentine swooning over the experience together.
If you or your special someone have never rock climbed, our Via Ferrata tours are open to all ability levels. Visitors are taught how to use the clips, harnesses, and cables before getting on the official route. There are less difficult routes where our expert mountain guide will show you the ropes. Our Via Ferrata experience gives you and your partner the chance to try something new or, if you are experienced, check off another rock climbing spot on your list. You can encourage each other and be rewarded with a shared sense of accomplishment when you book a day on our Via Ferrata. By conquering the Royal Gorge together, you will always remember this Valentine’s Day!
Giving the gift of experience on Valentine’s Day allows you and your special partner to spend more time sharing stories, connecting with each other without Wi-Fi, and building memories you will always share. Visit us at Royal Gorge Bridge and Park for this Valentine’s Day – it might become a new yearly tradition for you and your Valentine!
