Grand Junction, CO Destination for Retirees

Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX 4000 FA100032580

Living in Grand Junction, we have world-class everything around us.  Biking, climbing, hiking, skiing, rafting and golf.  Grand Junction is in Western Colorado, in a little pocket, between the mountains and the desert, with the Colorado River running though the middle of it. 

If you enjoy an active lifestyle and are thinking of retiring, put Grand Junction on your list of towns to check out.

What make people choose between a small town or city and a large one?  Why is it that while larger cities attract people with opportunities of jobs or more money, it's smaller cities, like Grand Junction, that consistently attract people who main concern is lifestyle?  

Climate, Culture and Costs make the Grand Valley a place to live.

Such a beautiful place!  I doubt that I will ever live there but it is certainly a place that I need to visit one day!
