I live in Trinidad and you are not telling the truth about us having alot of tacos. We actually have a shortage of mexican restaurants here. We have 2 and both are bad.

The crime in this city is outrageous for the size of it, H****n use is on the rise in a a bad way. The parks are unsafe for the children to go to due to the homeless population in this small town. The schools are just as bad serving nasty food and allowing the students to bully one another. this town has over 20 marijuana dispensaries and yet the school system had to cut the buses for the junior high and high school kids forcing them to walk to school. This town does have a lot of businesses that are ran well which makes us wonder what happened to the school

Trinidad Family Dental has a great energy and great staff but keep in mind the staff doesn't live in Trinidad, they commute a good 30 minutes to an hour to work We have great restaurants and great historic views

Pueblo is my hometown and I love it, it was born and raised there. Wouldn't trade it for anything in the world.

I lived in Trinidad for a few years and it was not that bad.

Whatever keeps the Californians away lol. My grandma lived in Trinidad for most of her life. I used to like going to visit her. It wasn't until I got older that I realized her doctor was in fact a transexual lol. So that part is fact.
