Pueblo is a relatively quiet town, with little in the way of nightlife or activities for young people.
The largest employers are the steel mill, the hospitals, and the nearby Pueblo Chemical Depot. The majority of the educational choices offered by the community college and university in town are in fields related to these employers, and other educational paths suffer as a result.
Education at the primary and secondary levels is very poor in terms of helping students reach proficiency and preparing them for college. There are many passionate teachers in Pueblo, but they lack the resources to teach effectively. Elective and extracurricular courses suffer in Pueblo due to a lack of qualified instructors and funding for programs.
Culturally, Pueblo is quite diverse, but the Hispanic community has had the most obvious impact on the art, music, events, and of course the food. Pueblo is famous for its green chile, and many local restaurants have their own version of it.
