Grand Junction in the Top 50 'Best Small Cities' in a Forbes study.

Number 49 is where we finished. The magazine conducted an extensive research project in which it looked at more than 200 'small cities' in the United States. The subject of this study was to find the best small cities for business and careers.

14 different factors were looked into, including population, cost of living, household income, and climate to determine the final standings. Only one other Colorado city made the cut. Pueblo came in at number 93.

It is something to be proud of, although as I found out Grand Junction used to be in the top 25 in this same poll back in the early 2000's.
