What Bert Has To Say About Pueblo Metro Area

Years ago the massive Colorado Fuel & Iron plant closed, changing Pueblo forever. Once a gritty steel town, Pueblo has been in transition ever since. Ranching and irrigated farming are economic mainstays, and there are still some metal-products industries in the area, The real attractions now are the quiet, small-town life and a pleasant climate. As part of the effort to transition the economy, the city has spent a lot for revitalization and waterfront restoration along the Arkansas River waterfront.
