Location and Lifestyle
Grand Junction is the largest city on Colorado's Western Slope and serves as a hub for transportation and shipping between Denver and Salt Lake City. The population of the Grand Junction, according to the 2010 Census, is 146,723. The name Grand Junction stems from the junction of the Colorado River (formerly known as the Grand River) and the Gunnison River. In the late 19th century, settlers were drawn to the fertile Grand Valley for its agricultural potential, and the area remains one of Colorado's largest food producers, including peaches, pears, cherries, and corn. In the late 1970s and early 1980s, the first grape vines were planted, sparking an increase in wine production. Now home to more than 20 wineries, Grand Junction is known as Colorado's Wine Country. The warm days and cool nights are exceptional conditions for producing hearty grapes, and red wine varietals in particular flourish in the conditions.
In addition to food production, the Grand Junction area includes unparalleled natural beauty. The Colorado National Monument is an outdoor lover's paradise, offering trails for hiking and biking, as well as incredible views of red rock canyons and stone monoliths jutting straight up from the ground. The nearby Grand Mesa is a spectacular flat top mountain that plateaus near 10,000 feet. It offers a variety of activities year-round, including skiing in the winter and hiking, fishing and biking in the summer.
