Everyone who lives here knows how lucky we are and understand how beautiful it is in Western Colorado. Most people have their own little favorite town, oftentimes it's Telluride or possibly Ouray. This just goes to show you there are so many tremendous places to visit here in Western Colorado but today we're talking about Fruita.

It's pretty cool to hear that Matador Network put together the list of The 25 coolest towns in America to visit in 2021, and Fruita not only made the list but did pretty well. Before they started the countdown list the reason for the list was given. A lot of it has to do with 2020 being so difficult and shutting down businesses but these towns stayed resilient and got creative to make sure their small-town charm wasn't lost during a very difficult time.

In 2020 many people fell in love with road trips again and wanting to explore things closer to home. So, the important questions, where did Fruita land on the list and what did they say about Fruita?

Great news at Fruita landed at #11 on the list, showing off a gorgeous photo of the mountain biking trails readily available. They describe how many great outdoor activities are available in Fruita plus delicious food and drink options such as The Hot Tomato, and Copper Club Brewing Company (although we know Copper Club is shut down temporarily as they are changing locations).

It's always nice to see the beauty of Western Colorado shown off in national publications such as this, just as long as it doesn't bring too many people wanting to relocate. :)
