Situated in the high desert lands of Western Colorado, Grand Junction is dramatically different from most of the Rocky Mountain State. While it has all the outdoor activities that Colorado is known for (hiking, biking, rafting and skiing), the area’s two rivers — the Colorado River and Gunnison River – merge to create a fertile valley ideal for orchards and wineries. Grand Junction is the state’s largest western city, offering visitors a surprisingly wide range of activities and dining options for a unique Colorado family vacation.
