Why Fruita Colorado is a Great Place to Live
There is no shortage of great places to live on the Western Slope of Colorado. That being said, and what I'm about to say is something I have said before, one of the most-forgotten gems on the Western Slope is Fruita. Sure, it's a small town, but I don't think it's a secret that I love a small town, and Fruita is right up my alley.
There's plenty to love in Fruita, Colorado, no matter its size. Today, I'd like to highlight some of the things that make Fruita a great place to live. If you live in Fruita, and you think I missed anything, make sure you let us know on AppChat.
Small Towns are the Best Towns
Since I already mentioned it above, it bears repeating that with a smaller population than Montrose, Fruita isn't a big place. However, that works in its favor, as there exists the same kind of small-town charm you'd find in Montrose. They might not be as big, but the folks in Fruita are nice enough to double their population.
You Don't Have to Live in Grand Junction
Despite what you might think, I don't have anything against Grand Junction. I just like to poke at them. That being said, a town the size of Junction isn't for everybody, and that's where Fruita comes in. Only around half an hour from the far side of Grand Junction proper, Fruita is the best option if you want to keep Grand Junction at a minimum safe distance.
Fruita, in addition to being a great place to live on its own, is also home to the Museum of the Mountain West's Dinosaur Journey Museum, which is just the coolest thing. I've been there twice with my son, mostly because he was a little too young the first time around, but also because it's a great family outing.
