Welcome to Grand Junction
Grand Junction is as utilitarian as its name suggests. Near two major rivers, its intersecting highways are built over centuries-old trading routes. It's admittedly not much to look at. Amid one of Colorado’s most fertile agricultural zones, Grand Junction is a cow town at heart – despite being western Colorado’s main urban hub. It's worth browsing downtown Main St, revamped into a pleasant pedestrian mall with fountains, benches and sculptures that capture some small-town atmosphere away from the sprawl.
