Already successfully branded as Colorado's Wine County, Grand Valley tourism seeks to expand its reach even further with a new push — to be known for its extraordinary recreation and culinary options.

Hiking, biking, rafting, golfing, dining — all the “-ings.”

“It's all about diversity and having lots of choices,” Grand Junction Visitor and Convention Bureau (GJVCB) division manager Barbara Bowman said.
Like most tourism destinations, Grand Junction took a big hit when the national economy trended downward four years ago. Bowman said “stabilizing, rebuilding and regaining” its market share is GJVCB's top goal in 2012. Bowman will also seek new ways to attract a larger segment of international travelers flying into Denver.

Bowman and Meyeraan both say they hope an expanded tourism vision will bring more groups to the area. And, they said an investment in new technologies will play a larger role in attracting new business.
