No trip to Grand Junction, Colorado, is complete without a taste of something local. Nestled in Colorado’s fertile Grand Valley, the summer and fall include a bounty of fresh local produce, including the famous Palisade peaches. The Grand Junction area, known as Colorado’s wine country, is also home to some of Colorado’s best wineries and vineyards. Tours and tastings are available seasonally. If you prefer hops to grapes, be sure to check out local brewpubs like Kannah Creek or Rockslide, which each serve up a selection of their own special beers.
