Colorado is a cool place to live I love it here. I live in pueblo and over the last few years its gotten worse,but I still love it here.

Pueblo is a beautiful place and the annoying California peeps and other people coming from other places bringing drugs and gangs here is why pueblo is starting to get as bad as it is.

I hate when people talk about pueblo like its so terrible and everyone who lives here is trash because they couldn't be more wrong! The whole thing about you know who is from Pueblo because they have a forty ounce and a pit bull is stupid as well.

There are lots of different types people here just like any city and I wouldn't want to live anywhere else. Its a beautiful place with great food and culture.It is also a very cheap place to live. I'm talking 4 bed 2 bath nice house with garage and big yard for around $675.00 a month you cant beat it.

There are some things that need to be fixed and dumb a*s people that should be kicked out,but don't let that scare you from coming here its a awesome place to live.

I'm from Pueblo Colorado and in my opinion, it's the worst town in America. We have a high crime rate, illegal drugs both recreational and extreme, gangs and a high suicide rate. Mexico is better.

I live in Pueblo and it IS NOT as bad as people say it is. The true trash can is Colorado Springs. Pueblo had had one murder this year. Springs has had one every week

I live in Colorado and the only places I think you should never go is south/east Denver, grand junction and the really bad parts where you can get shot are south springs and Pueblo.


Gabby Acosta

Aye I live in Pueblo, there was a body found in the park near my house a couple months ago. I'm leaving as soon as possible though, we're not all bad here

I live in Colorado. I went to the state fair in pueblo and when I was in my hotel with my sister someone tried to break in but they didn't. Luckly

nowhere in Colorado is what anybody who is from a truly dangerous place would call bad. I lived in aurora and pueblo both were very nice compared to where I'm from.

I lived here for 10 years, Pueblo gets a much worse wrap than they're worth. Just like any city, it depends on where you live and associate your self with, which determines the experience you have. Is it a little rough around the edges- Yes. But what city isn't. Pueblo is a great community with a deep connection to the people that live in it, I'd move there again if I had been given another chance.

The highschools are a great place for the kids, I sent all 4 of my kids through East Highschool, the IB programme is amazing and Corwin and Fountain are good for middle schoolers and elementary children. If you want a good experience, don't buy a house in Bessemer or on the East side, that's just my personal assesment anyway. I grew up in Bessemer, and it's not as bad as everyone thinks. I suggest looking into University Park or El Comino
