8 ways to enjoy the Rockies in fall

8 ways to enjoy the Rockies in fall

Weekend in Grand Valley, CO

With its miles of cattle ranches and fruit orchards, the Grand Valley once had a reputation for being a bit boring. But day-trippers from Denver and Boulder are drifting west to discover a mini Napa-meets-Boulder-meets-Moab.

The trio of towns here—Palisade, Grand Junction, and Fruita—have it all. Vineyard-striped wine country? Check. World-class mountain bike trails? Check. Great food, shopping, and shows? Check, check, check.

And you’ll have it to yourself in the fall, plus cooler temps.
