Pueblo has been my hometown since the day I breathed my first breath at Parkview Medical Center. Parkview is one of the best hospitals that southern Colorado has, and it's right here in Pueblo. St. Mary Corwin and Colorado Mental Health Institute at Pueblo are two other thriving hospitals located in the city.
Pueblo has some of the most diverse settings in the state. We have a thriving culture that is hard to match. We love our food in Pueblo, especially our very own Pueblo chilies. Pueblo has a very yummy dish called a slopper that features Pueblo green chili.
One popular place in Pueblo is the Harp River walk. The River Walk is located along the Arkansas River. Our hometown medal of honor recipients are displayed in note-worthy artwork along the walk. Artwork also pays homage to the twin towers in New York City by displaying a piece from ground zero. People enjoy the beauty and tranquility along the walk all year round.
All in all, Pueblo is great and fun place to live.

Pueblo, Colorado is an interesting place to say the least. There are some fun things to do but when you have lived in Pueblo for a while things start to get a little routine. Of course there are new things being added around that up the fun but most of the additions are stores or restaurants. Personally I think the city is in need of a lot of change. Changing how the community is involved with its own well being, lowering the amount of crime by hiring more police officers and educating the community on public safety and how to help, and improving the school districts in need of help would all further bolster the productivity and how safe and secure the city as a whole is.
Pueblo, is a small city around 60,000 people. It is close to great outdoor activities such as river rafting and bike trails. Pueblo has a reservoir where boating activities are available, and annual events such as Colorado State Fair and Bands in The Backyard an annual concert just east of the city bring thousands of visitors. Every Friday in June and July downtown hosts block parties. Where Pueblo is lacking is in law enforcement, high crime, gangs, street care, medical advices, education, and has a rising homeless population. Among other drug problems, Pueblo has become known as the Nappa Valley of Marijuana over the past few years which really gives us a black eye.
