Good place to live
I am not promoting Pueblo as a place to move to, in fact most of us are happy with the size of our town. The reason for this post is to counter some of the posts I have seen on this site.
I was born and raised in Pueblo so living in this community I believe I do know enough about it to share an understanding of my home town.
I have lived in Denver, Southern California, Seattle, and have spent time back east so my experience is not just of Pueblo
What does Pueblo offer that other cities don’t? It is as simple as someone unknown to you saying hello while standing in line at the check out. Most people from Pueblo are friendly. They are not out to impress. They are excepting of those who are different.
The crime rate, if you look at the numbers is not any higher then towns for this size. I feel safe most anywhere in the community..
All my children graduated from Pueblo schools an went on to higher education. Teaching, nursing, and law-enforcement. 3 of my grand children have or getting ready to Graduate from CSU-Pueblo. So education in town I feel is good.
I have only one child that has moved away.He and his family live in Denver, but comes down to Pueblo often, staying close to friends and family.
I have become friends with those who have moved to Pueblo, due to work and when they retired elected to stay. It is friendly, comfortable, cost of living is good and the climate is great. Many of their family members have also moved here as well.
If you want all the things a big city offers Pueblo is not the place. For that you would have to travel to Springs or Denver, but if you are looking for a places that offers a feel of small town with many of the things of a bigger city then Pueblo is the place.
