Delta is a small rural agricultural community, but not so small that you have to go out of town to obtain the “necessities of life”. Delta County is noted for its wonderful and affordable housing, climate, health care, personal safety, economics and recreation. Grand Junction is about 42 miles to the north of Delta on Highway 50 and Montrose lies 21 miles south. Both have airports that service Delta County.
Housing in Delta, as well as anywhere in Delta County, is as diverse as the lay of the land! You will find early turn of the century homes, many of which are listed on the local historic register, planned developments with neighborhood open space parks, smaller acreage ranchettes and larger agricultural farms and homesteads.
The climate is exceptional with warm summer temperatures, usually in the 90’s. Autumn is crowned with beautiful colors that lead into our “Banana Belt” winter, with daytime temperatures averaging in the high 20s to low 40s with the overnight lows rarely below 0 degrees. If you enjoy the snow, Grand Mesa is just a short distance to the north, offering ice fishing, cross-country skiing and snowmobiling. In the summer, over 200 lakes on the Grand Mesa beckon fishermen, along with hiking trails, mountain biking and four-wheeling.
Confluence Park near the confluence of the Gunnison and Uncompahgre Rivers, offers a 60 acre lake with approximately 5 miles of meandering walking and bicycle trails. Bill Heddles Recreation Center, located at Confluence Park, offers a variety of programs for all age groups.
