Royal Gorge Train Ride Mar 24, 2008
If you are in Colorado and are looking for a scenic tour with a side of luxury, I highly recommend taking a trip on the Royal Gorge Railroad. This is a 2 hour train ride along the Arkansas River. The Royal Gorge is known for having the world's highest suspension bridge, and the train travels under the bridge 1,000 feet below. There are three different types of train cars on the train - an open-air car, a sit down dining car, and the Vista Dome car, which has a glass dome.

We decided to purchase the Gourmet Lunch tour. Normally, I'm not the type of person who will spend money for a gourmet cuisine, but since this was a family outing, I decided to splurge. I am glad I did. The food was exquisite, the service was terrific, and the ride was truly enjoyable. We went in the beginning of July, so of course it was extremely hot (100 degrees F that day!), but the breeze that you felt when standing in the open-air car provided just the right amount of relief from the scorching summer heat. The scenery was breathtaking, the people were friendly, and I think it was well worth the price. I would recmmend this to anyone who wants a change of pace and a chance to relax while still seeing Colorado's natural beauty.
