"A mixed area with subdivisions and rural areas"

Fruitvale is located in between Grand Junction and Clifton on the western slope of Colorado. This town offers a variety of housing options, such as traditional neighborhoods and a rural setting where you can find small goat farms and green orchards alongside fields of growing corn. The cost of living here is really good, especially compared to some of the other towns close to Grand Junction. A median household income here is around $58,321 (about $3,000 over state average) and you can get an average median priced home for $227,000 which is about $10,000 lower than the state average, making the cost of living here pretty good.

The area in and around Fruitvale is very green and to the north are the Bookcliff Mountains which are very cool to see. There are tons of orchards in this area with all kinds of fruit trees and you can often find fruit stands along the road selling excellent, fresh fruit. This area is much less busy than nearby Grand Junction although being right next to Grand Junction allows residents to have a lot of amenities very nearby.
  • some of the best, freshest fruit around
  • green fields and open spaces
  • great views
  • far from the Front Range
