      "Where Life Leads"

      There is no other place in Colorado where visitors experience the intersection of so many prized ecosystems: Mountains, rivers, canyons, lakes, forests and high desert. For people who define themselves by the amount of time they spend outdoors, this is their mecca.

      Grand Junction is a place where vibrant music, farm-fresh cuisine and a lively art scene converge with countless outdoor adventures. Here, alpine terrain meets dramatic high desert. Powerful rivers course through verdant valleys, and opportunities for embracing the wilderness is abundant in each season.

      Guests follow their passions, indulge their taste buds and go "where life leads." They say, Mother Nature really does play favorites. Colorado National Monument is part of the NPS and is often referred to by guests as a mini Grand Canyon. The Grand Mesa is the largest flat-top mountain bursting with over 300 lakes. The Book Cliffs is the longest continuous cliff face on the planet and is home to one of the last few protected bands of wild mustangs in the country – over 100 graze the public lands and live freely. Rattlesnake Arches is a remote canyon that is famous for the largest concentration of natural arches in the world. The Colorado and Gunnison Rivers weave their way through town, hence the name Grand Junction.

      Additional highlights include over 38 area wineries; a Downtown framed by over 155 art sculptures and murals; three year-round golf courses; wildlife; skiing at Powderhorn Mountain Resort; thousands of miles of trails for hiking, mountain biking and off-road adventures.

      These unique experiences, coupled with no crowds, over 38 affordable hotels and the third largest airport in Colorado, provides an easy and accessible vacation no matter what the season.
