Fruita

Fruita is a community of about 12,000 residents 10 miles west of Grand Junction. It was historically a farming community, this the name. Today Fruita has a bustling little town center but residents must still go to Grand Junction for anything beyond groceries and basic purchases.
The town prides itself on being a mountain bike destination and has miles of trials from easy dirt roads to some real cliff hangers. The Dinosaur Museum is an attraction for locals and visitors alike. Dinosaur Hill, just a 10 minute walk from the museum was one of two early locations from which dinosaur bones were excavated in the Grand Valley just about a century ago. 
Housing in Fruita is a mix of early 1900's and every decade from there forward in time. Much of the modern growth of Fruita real estate came between 2005-2009 when the region was experiencing a boom in natural gas prices and employment. During that period many 1400-2400 sq, ft. ranch style homes were built. There were some two-story homes but they were much less common.
In 2011 Fruita opened the first Community Center in any of the Grand Valley communities. Facilities include both indoor and outdoor swimming pools, an outdoor skate and BMX park, indoor basketball-volleyball courts and extensive exercise equipment. Both the Fruita Senior Center and a branch of Mesa County library are located in the Rec Center building. 
Among facilities and businesses in Fruita are a full service hospital, long-term care and nursing home facilities. There are two bike shops specializing in mountain bikes and biking with rentals available. Two brew pubs; American, Thai. Mongolian and Mexican eateries as well as a City Market grocery and major chain drug store are all available.
