In the heart of Mesa Country Colorado, the mile-high city of Grand Junction makes for a breathtaking destination for visitors exploring the world famous Rocky Mountains. Beyond sheer-walled canyons, historic red-rock formations and gravity-defying boulders, you’ll also find a plethora of peach, cherry and apple orchards interlaced with wineries and vibrant wildflowers for views so beautiful, you’ll wonder if you’ve stepped into a painting.
Reserve a day to see Grand Junction’s awe-inspiring, red rock landscape where about 20 wineries host year-round events. This part of Grand Junction was designated an American Viticultural Area for the high quality wine grapes produced here. Bike, drive or hire one of many limousine services to taxi you around Colorado’s scenic wine country while you sample a homegrown Port, Riesling, White Zinfandel or Merlot.
Save your Sunday for the Botanical Gardens, First Sundays Free. With a butterfly house, a secret garden for kids, a discovery greenhouse castle, picnic grounds, an amphitheater and rose garden, this 15-acre property is a nature-lover’s paradise. You won’t believe this gorgeously lush property was once a salvage yard.
When packing for your trip, make sure to bring your helmet and shin guards, as biking, boarding and inline skating are just a few of the town’s favorite pastimes. Explore 18,000 square feet of concrete and challenging obstacles like ramps, rails, walls, bowls and boxes at the Westlake Skate park or Eagle Rim Park at Orchard Mesa City Park. Or, go a step beyond and perfect those skills with a lesson from one of the town’s BMX or skateboarding pros.
