The beautiful city of Delta is positioned west of Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park, where the 2,900-foot canyon formed by the meandering Gunnison River will spellbind you. For history lovers, a visit to the Delta County Historical Museum is a must. The museum gives an account of the Western Slope’s cultural legacy and natural history. The butterfly display consists of rare specimens from now extinct species. Confluence Park is a popular spot for its recreational activities such as hiking, boating, and angling. Visitors can also unwind at the Sweitzer Lake State Park.
