The Grand Junction Instagram page says it all:

Grand Junction is proof that Mother Nature plays favorites. Mountains. Rivers. Canyons. Lakes. High Desert. It all comes together here.--@visitgrandjunction

It is indeed a "Magnificent and magical place". Even on a cloudy day the views are spectacular. @dafsquatch.designs shared this stunning photo.

Only a few US tourist spots made the list including Tuscon Arizona, Greenville South Carolina, Louisville Kentucky, and Charleston South Carolina.
