Don't underestimate the fishing out on Colorado's eastern plains. Bonny reservoir is a couple hour drive east of the Springs, a little north of Burlington. It's a state rec area, and a good one. Also you have the Nee Noshe group of reservoirs which is about the same distance, though southeast of the Springs. They are on both sides of hwy. 285.

Just curious does GJ have a theater that attracts Broadway shows? How is their art scene as well as their symphony?

LMAO! Grand Junction does have an art scene, but it's pretty small considering the natural beauty that surrounds the area. I always found that odd. No offense Cosmic, but I would definitely describe GJ as a hick town. Of course, my definition may differ from yours. I don't necessarily think that everyone who lives in GJ is a hick, but that's the general feel I got when I lived there. It's not for everyone, however, I think our OP would love it there!

Delta...if you consider Grand Junction to be a hick town, then you have apparently never been in some of the samll towns in the eastern and/or southern USA. Compared to some of those places, Grand Junction is downright cosmopolitan.

A good definition of a "hick" town is where people say, "Hey, just because we're divorced doesn't mean that we can't still be brother and sister."

Delta07, how long has it been since you`ve been to GJ? I dont think you really know what a real "hick town" is. The people that I know in GJ who have been there all there lives and others who are not natives to GJ are NOT hicks. Many are from big cities.

Have you ever been to the rural South? Well I have and I can tell you the people in GJ are not hicks.

Or where you need to hold a family reunion to assemble a full set of teeth?
