From whitewater adventures to relaxing float trips, the Grand Junction area is a paradise for water lovers.
Maybe you've come to Grand Junction for a first-hand look at the Colorado's city's bounty of art galleries and distinctive boutiques, or perhaps you're here to sample a Riesling or Merlot from one of the region's esteemed wineries. There's plenty to see and do in this mountain-studded community on Colorado's Western Slope. But one of the most memorable ways to soak up the region's unparalleled beauty is by paddling through it. This is one of the West's premier whitewater rafting destinations and the roiling rapids of the Colorado River, as they course through Westwater Canyon into Utah, offer some of the area's most thrilling adventures.
