Pueblo has reinvented itself into a mecca of industry and arts serving as a commercial and cultural heart of Southern Colorado. The city is known for its history which is told in many of its museums, galleries, landmarks and old businesses. All these have earned it a place among Livability’s List of “Top 10 Cities for Historic Preservation”.
New businesses and industries have been set up in the city to diversify its ‘steel city’ heritage. These industries have worked closely with Pueblo’s excellent school system and universities to develop a homegrown and highly trained workforce. A fine example would be the CSU-Pueblo Hasan School of Business which has been consistently ranked among the top 15% of all business schools by Forbes, College US News and Times Higher Education.
With 300 days of sunshine a year, Puebloans spend a lot of time in the great outdoors. Parks and recreational opportunities abound along with easy access to Colorado’s spectacular natural attractions. The abundant sunshine also provides perfect growing conditions for the Pueblo Chile peppers – a culinary staple which has become the cultural icon. You can celebrate this icon with the community at the Chile & Frijoles Festival which draws more than 100,000 visitors every September
Pueblo’s thriving art scene is anchored by the renowned Sangre de Cristo Arts Center which includes seven rotating galleries, two dance companies and the Buell Children’s Museum. The museum was ranked 2nd in the “Nation of Children’s Art Museum”. Pueblo’s family friendly attractions include the Pueblo Zoo – home to more than a hundred and twenty species and the ever popular kitty rides at City Park. This is an ideal for a laidback outing day with the kids.
