The Canadian River Historic Wagon Bridge not only spans this splendid Texas prairie river – it spans time, transporting the traveler to an earlier era, and inviting a slower pace.

 

Off the beaten path…

 The river city is awash with opportunity for year round family fun, and a chance to revel in what one writer called being “ a million miles from Monday.” Taking a walk to enjoy the historic, nostalgic downtown district – or a drive to view the mesas of the Canadian River Breaks ranch country and observe the flora and fauna of its pristine, short grass prairie – are all apart of the unforgettable experience.

 The High Plains loop of the Great Texas Wildlife Trails provides passage to 68 regional wildlife viewing sites, 12 of which are in the Canadian area. Birding and wildlife enthusiasts prospecting for a look at fauna – such as bobwhite quail, burrowing owls, prairie dogs, and the lesser prairie chicken – can take advantage of the year round viewing opportunities or special events, including the Prairie Chicken viewings held each spring.
