Palisade Colorado has a population of 3,000 people or so, zip code 81526.
The downtown is reminiscent of an old west square, while the restaurants are full of creative takes on local foods. See my restaurant recommendations here.
You can go on wine tasting tours here and eat peaches freshly picked. Palisade peaches are unrivaled!
The microclimate has to do with how air hits Mt Garfield and flies south.
While at the doorstep of the Grand Mesa, Palisade is warm due to its elevation. Driving into Palisade from the east I like to get off at the first exit and hit the parking lot by the river to listen to it flow.
Its an attractive town for people who like to go rafting or mountain biking.
To get a feel for what Palisade is all about see Western Slope Adventures.
