Pueblo, Colorado

Find out for yourself why this flavorful southwest city was named one of the nation's four "most livable cities"...

...by Partners for Livable Communities, a Washington D.C. non-profit organization.

Perhaps one of the state's most faithful chronicles of life in this area is the Colorado Historical Society's El Pueblo History Museum. Located on the actual site of the El Pueblo trading post built in 1842,
the museum is now in the heart of downtown Pueblo. Take a stroll in the Union Avenue Historic District along a mile of painstakingly restored buildings. Shop the outdoor exhibits of southwestern art and pottery. Be sure to walk through the grand old Pueblo Union Depot with its mosaic tile flooring, polished wood wainscoting and stunning, stained glass windows.

History aside, the people of Pueblo spend the summer outdoors-as well as the fall, winter and spring! The mild climate of southern Colorado means bicycles and golf clubs stand at the ready year-round.

The 35-mile River Trail System is a paved ribbon that stretches from Colorado State University-Pueblo on the city's northeastern fringe clear down to Lake Pueblo to the west, where surreal limestone cliffs rim the 60-mile shoreline of the reservoir. Bicyclists, in-line skaters, joggers and power-walkers populate this recreational roadway.

Along the Arkansas River is Pueblo's new urban kayak course. Located between the 4th Street Bridge and Union Bridge at Corona Street in downtown Pueblo, the course features seven fun and challenging holes, with easy access and parking at either end.
