Grand Junction is a great place to be a kid. Which, of course, makes it a great place to be a parent as well. Many of the family outings you can take around the Grand Junction area are free, too, which means that you can share great times with your little ones without breaking the bank.
Delve Into Dinosaurs
What kid doesn’t love dinosaurs? Many of us never outgrow our fascination with them, and the fossil-rich ground beneath your feet offers great opportunities to engage your children.
Riggs Hill Trail, Dinosaur Hill and the Trail Through Time each offer unique opportunities to see actual dinosaur fossils in their natural state.
Fishing licenses are usually a requirement for anglers, but the Colorado Lottery sponsors a free weekend for those who want to give it a try. During the first full weekend of June, anyone can fish without a license. Take the kiddos, pack a cooler and try your luck at a local fishing spot.
