Hi everyone- My husband and I are in our late thirties and we have a four year daughter. We currently live in Tennessee but are ready to finally make a move out of the muggy, humid south. We have thought about Colorado for years. Specifically, we have looked into Grand Junction and feel like this may be the best fit. Any thoughts on Grand Junction? We would like to move before our daughter starts kindergarten next year so we would love advice on family friendly neighborhoods and schools. I would also love to hear from anyone else that moved when their child was similar in age and how they adapted. I will be graduating with my Masters in School Counseling next May so I'll also be looking for employment. Although I've lived in Tennessee for many years, I was born and raised in Nevada and I desperately have missed the drier climate. My husband grew up in Virginia but wants out of the high humidity weather. We would love any thoughts on the area! Thanks!

I'd look into Redlands, Fruita and Palisade. Maybe Orchard Mesa. I am not a big fan of downtown living but if you are there might be some good spots. Just be careful. There certainly are bad areas.

If you are interested in neighborhood data, click the neighborhood names near bottom of this page http://www.city-data.com/city/Grand-...-Colorado.html
If you want visual impression before visiting, use google maps / street view to look around.
