In 2017, TPG staffers traveled near and far for everything from airline mileage runs to hotel reviews to exciting vacations. And as the year comes to an end, we’re taking a moment to think back on the best places we visited this year. With some exciting new destinations and a few classics thrown in, here are the spots that stood out in 2017...
Grand Junction, Colorado
“The highlight of my travels for 2017, hands down, was a visit to Grand Junction, Colorado. Sure, Denver and Boulder are great, but head west to find the real heart of the state. From hiking the Colorado National Monument which is Grand Canyon-level incredible, to biking your way around the wineries in Palisade, there’s no shortage of things to do — one of which has to be a stop at chef Josh Niernberg’s restaurant Bin 707, where there’s not a sub-par dish (or drink) on the menu.” — Jane Frye, Nights & Weekends Editor
