Grand Valley, CO
With its miles of cattle ranches and fruit orchards, Grand Valley once had a reputation for being a bit boring. But day-trippers
from Denver and Boulder are drifting west to discover a mini Napa-meets-Boulder-meets-Moab. The trio of towns here—Palisade,
Grand Junction, and Fruita—have it all. Vineyard-striped wine country? Check. World-class mountain bike trails? Check. Great
food, shopping, and shows? Check, check, check.
