Real stories from people who chose Pueblo as their home

I choose Pueblo because…

“We were overwhelmed with the small town feel, welcoming spirit of the people, and the quiet structural improvements occurring around this culturally diverse city.”

“As recent empty nesters we wanted to downsize and downshift, but we also have career experiences that we hoped to utilize in a city where positive growth was taking place. After visiting Pueblo, we were overwhelmed with the small town feel, welcoming spirit of the people, and the quiet structural improvements occurring around this culturally diverse city. We chose Pueblo because it is a perfect fit for us. We are more relaxed, we get to play all along Colorado’s beautiful front range, and we are contributing to Pueblo’s promising future.”

“There are so many family-friendly activities and the weather is fantastic!”

“I chose Pueblo because it felt like home. My husband and I had moved for work several times over five years and ultimately were given the option to live anywhere in Southern Colorado. After visiting and doing some research, we chose Pueblo. It had a small-town feel with bigger city amenities. Since we both grew up in the mid-west, we appreciated that there are water and trees. There are so many family-friendly activities and the weather is fantastic! I am very happy that we chose Pueblo to become our home.”

“The opportunity to serve and shape the future and sustainability of our City!”

“I chose Pueblo as my home for two main reasons, first for the opportunity to serve and shape, along with other passionate leaders, the future and sustainability of our City. Second for its outdoor adventures. I enjoy running, walking, canoeing, snowboarding, and hiking. Pueblo provides my family the opportunity to live and play in a community that is large enough to offer various amenities like the Riverwalk. It’s also geographically perfect to allow its residents the opportunity to enjoy nature due to its proximity to various hiking trails, ski resorts, the Pueblo Reservoir, and my absolute favorite Pueblo’s Nature Center running path.”

Serving up all 4 seasons with plenty of sunshine and mild days all year long!

There is no doubt that Pueblo has phenomenal weather most of the year with over 300 days of sunshine and mild average temps. It could be a full-on blizzard just 30 minutes north and be perfectly sunny in Pueblo! This weather is ideal for outdoor enthusiasts. You will enjoy the best of all seasons with gorgeous fall evenings, warmer summers, average winters and amazing sunsets against the bordering mountain range all year long. The mountains are never far for that cozy winter staycation and ski trip. Hot temps in the summer often give way to cool nights and snow doesn’t linger around too long in the winter.
