Working in Delta
I like the connections that you build, be it friends since kindergarten or people you meet at work, most people are friendly and kind. There is plenty to do outside in ways of being outdoors, you can hunt, fish, hike, and so much more. One thing that could change is that there isn't much to do inside, and you have to go to Grand Junction or Montrose to find something to take up time with.
Delta is great if you like a small town with small town mentality. If you were expecting opportunity for growth and business, one of the surrounding larger towns might be a better fit. Delta isn't all bad, it is locate right at the base of some amazing outdoor fun and isn't too far from GJ or Montrose for that larger city feel.
I moved to Delta when I was 6 years old, so I've mostly lived here all my life. Over the years, I've made a lot of great friends and met a lot of awesome people that have helped me along my path in life towards my future, and I'll be forever grateful for all of those great influences.
