"A rural setting near close to many amenities"

Orchard Mesa lies just east of Grand Junction. There are approximately 6,836 people living in this mostly rural type of setting. There are no restaurants or other amenities here but since it lies next to Grand Junction, a city of almost 60,000 people, there are numerous places to eat and shop within just minutes of Orchard Mesa. Grand Junction also has a lot of employment as well as a college.

The main industry in Orchard Mesa is healthcare and social assistance and the median household income is $52,906, just shy of Colorado averages. To purchase a single family residence here would cost around $217,950, which is about $20,000 lower than the average so the cost of living is pretty decent. Many of the homes here are spread out and on a bit of land, perfect for growing a large garden or having some small animals.
