Where will you find the community named Colorado's most overlooked city by the website Only In Your State? Hint: It's closer than you think.

The story, posted just yesterday (January 23), cites Grand Junction as the victim of these oversights. Give it a read, and you'll no doubt agree with everything the post has to say about the area.The author of the post, Annie, sites the following reasons why everyone should visit Grand Junction.

  • Incredible views
  • Colorado Mesa University
  • Charming downtown area
  • Numerous one-of-a-kind wineries
  • Some of the best outdoor recreation in the state
  • Colorado National Monument

In all fairness, it should be stated that the Colorado National Monument is not necessarily in Grand Junction. Fruita lays claim to that one. One could also argue the majority of the wineries for which western Colorado is so well known actually reside in Palisade.

Check out the post. The site, Only in Your State, offers fascinating and often times humorous posts citing interesting qualities associated with each state.
