The area around Grand Junction has made a name for itself as the heart of Colorado's wine country. But wine's just one of the region's great assets. The largest city on Colorado's Western Slope, Grand Junction sprawls across the Grand Valley, perfectly situated for exploring the wonders of the area. And wonders certainly abound, from Colorado National Monument to hundreds of Grand Mesa lakes to Colorado River rafting to red-rock canyons peppered with mountain-bike trails. A charming downtown hosts great shops, restaurants, art galleries, events and so much more.
