Grand Junction is located in Mesa County, about 250 miles west-southwest of Denver, at the confluence of the Colorado and Gunnison Rivers. The town is an ideal base for exploring the wealth of outdoor activities on offer in the Colorado National Monument and surrounding areas. You can spend days getting back to nature along a vast network of hiking and biking trails, go whitewater rafting, boating, or kayaking in James. M. Robb State Park, or spend a few days learning about the history and culture of the area at the Museums of Western Colorado. Bikers have several interesting cycling tours to enjoy, including one that takes you through Colorado's Wine Country. Foodies can indulge their taste buds on a Grand Junction Food Tour, and there are plenty of family-friendly activities for younger visitors.
