Living in Pueblo most of my life I have been able to see it grow. I have had the opportunity to live in the city as well as the county. Like every other city in the world, Pueblo has it's ups and downs. We have produced many successful people who have been able to make a change in a lot of ways. I personally have seen a certain community member help the youth in my neighborhood. Not only in an educational sense, but able to be a role model to quite a few young men's lives. Knowing he grew up in the wsame place I was, I'm sure he struggled with the same things we all did. He was able to overcome the same obstacles and get educated at the same time. I admire the drive he must have had knowing he would make a difference in one of the toughest, roughest neighborhoods in one of the roughest cities in the country. But one of my greatest experiences that I will never forget with Pueblo is, it's not easy to be a productive member of the community.......but it's possible.

I like that the people in Pueblo County are usually pretty helpful and friendly to one another. Not only that but I enjoy all of the numerous forms of agriculture taking place in the County. It smells crisp in the fall, and is all around peaceful. The ability to see acres of land for farming with the nosies of barn animals in the neighborhood to surround me is something that I find enjoyable. Living in the County is nice because I feel like I am more able to take in my surroundings and live less crowed unlike living would be in the town.
I am born and raised in Pueblo, and I have traveled and lived in many places but there is no place like home. Between the warm climate pretty much all year round, to the incredible housing prices and family owned businesses Pueblo will remain one of the best places to live and retire in in the state of Colorado.
