Stereotypes are just a part of life. No matter what, we'll always hear them about certain things, and have to discern them from reality and ultimately form our own opinion based on personal experiences.

And, like everything else, we'll always hear stereotypes about the places we live. Sure, negative stereotypes will always exist, but as will positive stereotypes, and the actual truth is typically some combination of the two.

So, what do stereotypes say about you and the place you live? Let's take a look at some overly generalized, stereotypical opinions based on Grand Junction, Colorado area neighborhoods.
