Those are the sounds that you will most likely hear throughout the nighttime here in Pueblo, Colorado. No, it's not the sounds of a soda can opening, it's the sound of a gun being fired which is very common in this city unfortunately. Granted that all cities have their goods and bads, this is one problem that Pueblo has had for a very long time not, and the policedoesnt seem to be doing anything about it. Though the affordability is very good (because the crim eis high and nobody wants to live here), there are too many bad things going on in this ity that don't outweigh the good unfortunately. Possibly with the addition of a better law enforcement program, thenthis city could possibly get back up on its feet and go in a positive direction for once.

Pueblo is my home town. I have seen some changes but nothing dramatic. It still has been the same home grown town as long as I can remember. I appreciate the food culture of Pueblo. We are known for our green chile stew and Slopper hamburgers. We are so known that a few Pueblo restaurants have been featured on the Food Channel for the specific items!
I also appreciate the big small town of Pueblo Colorado. Traffic is minor and you could probably get to anywhere in Pueblo in about 15 minutes.
The people are friendly and will most of the time greet you with eye contact, a hello or both.
I love this city! First of all, the beautiful, majestic Rocky Mountains begin about 30-45 min from the city. The art, music, and overall community is very diverse and fun to engage with! Our large murals on building throughout downtown give a warm and welcoming vibe to all who pass. Our food here is second to none, especially when it comes to quality Mexican food and green Chile! The slopper, an open face cheeseburger smothered in amazing green Chile, is a staple for the community!! The drug use and violent crime is a bit high for our relatively small city of about 110,000. It is mostly confined to certain areas of the city but the opioid epidemic has hit our town with some force. Outside of that, Pueblo is a very fun, culture filled, diverse, easy living city. When you venture out and realize that most places are basically the same, at its foundations, Pueblo is high on the quality of life scale.
