It's a good thing to live in the Grand Valley. We have beauty everywhere and never lack for fun things to do. But, sooner or later, you get the chance to go on vacation. When you get a chance to escape - I know you probably don't want to, but please play along - where do you vacation when you live in paradise?

Do you go south to Lake Powell? Or further south to stare at the Grand Canyon? Or maybe you prefer to lose your life savings in Vegas. Perhaps you head east to the Front Range and play daredevil by driving on I-25 and experience the joy of cement that is Denver.

Summer is nearly over, so spill it. Which is your vacation getaway of choice?
