Knowing how a place is before you move to it is a luxury not afforded most people. You move then deal with whatever comes.

But wouldn't it be nice if you had some information about a place BEFORE you move there? Well, I'm your huckleberry. Here are five things you definitely will want to know before moving here.

We do wine just fine

Great hiking trails


You can hike all day every day and not see the same thing twice. There are so many great trails here and nearby that you can literally hike something new every day. If you're new to hiking, there are trails made specifically for you, and for the experts, you won't be disappointed in the many and varied trails here in the Grand Valley.Get your hiking footwear ready!

Huntin, Fishin, Lovin every day


There are so many exceptional places here to hunt and fish that you could never visit them all. But trying seems like fun! There are a number of great places locally to not only get outfitted, but to get the real scoop on where the fish are biting, or best places to erect a blind come hunting season. And if you're hoping to find a trophy elk or deer, look no further.

Weather in Grand Junction is amazing. IN the summer, it's hot and mostly dry, although occasionally we do see a good bit of rain. And winter? In Colorado? Yep, we get winter here too. Skiing at Powderhorn Resort is a favorite pastime of many here.
