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.

I grew up in Pueblo, CO and have been here my entire life, and although I believe that certain neighborhoods and parts of town could receive more care, overall it is a very nice place. It has culture that has been extended even more since people of other states have moved here. It brings a progressive change to the city, and I imagine that Pueblo has enormous potential in the coming decades. I personally love the educational opportunities. It isn't the smallest town, but you can still see friendly faces when you are out and about. I do imagine that my family will stay here for years to come; my great great grandmother being the first one to move here.
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.
