LOL McGowdog ...

Actually there are two IMAX in COS, and don't forget the Trans Siberian Orchestra who were just in The Springs a few months ago.

Joss, I saw one of your posts a while back. I see you are still on your mission. I still think you compare apples to oranges. The 47th largest city in the USA, to the 245th. It just doesn't make any sense to anyone I think and I suppose that is why everyone is bewildered.

I agree with some other post I saw, what rivalry are you talking about? I don't know anyone from The Springs who gives a second thought to Pueblo anymore than they do to Woodland Park because it's on the local weather report.

Also on the tourism I read in one of your other many threads pressing your issue, stating that's a "maybe". COS will always surpass P. One simple reason, Pikes Peak, the 2nd most visited peak on the planet. 2nd only to Mt. Fuji in Japan. Not to mention a ton of other attractions that draw people from around the world.

In a few hundred years, perhaps some of your ideas could come to fruition, but not in any of our lifetimes. 50 years ago there were two large towns. One began a City with all the amenities and major tourism, the other became an incorporated industrial area.

Some of your ideas on The Springs are cool, and actually they are doing a study on putting in a street car system downtown, which would be way cool. When I have visited downtown, it's a good walk from my favorite place to eat to my favorite live music place. It's several blocks and although there are cabs, they charge too much. The city wide METRO bus system does a great job getting you downtown, but once you are there, you're on your own.

Anyway, I'm not sure what actual planet you live on, but you are very entertaining at least.

Good luck on your quest.

I thought Pueblo was dirty and Colorado Springs was beautiful.

Colorado Springs is beautiful. It has one of the nicest natural settings of any major city in the country.

But Pueblo has come a long way as well. Probably not as far as Joss (the OP on this thread) would suggest, but they have come a long way toward re-building their downtown with the River Walk and some other minor projects which have gone a long way.

I would live in Colorado Springs, not Pueblo. But I like both towns.

It doesn't. Now... Albuquerque vs Colorado Springs would be an interesting discussion.
