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.
I believe that Pueblo has so much potential to be one of the best cities in Colorado but what is currently holding pueblo back is the crime rate, heroin use, and homeless population. As to why this problem exists, I am not sure but in order for Pueblo to prosper as much as I think it could, we would have to severely diminish the homeless population which would in turn drop the amount of heroin use dramatically. As for the crime rate that is a problem having to do with gang issues. That being said, if those three issues were suppressed then I really believe that Pueblo could be a very prosperous city.
