Default Pueblo Co

Which area of Pueblo has the lowest crime? Which area is the best to raise your children? I'm looking for an area that is low crime, good schools, and you can let your children in the yard and not have to worry about them. Thanks!

P-Dub is as far south as I will go in Pueblo County, and you have the Reseviour to keep you busy, as an added bonus. Last time I went to a gun show at the state fairgrounds, I was reminded why I don't ever go to Pueblo proper.

So you dont like the city of Pueblo because of a gun show? Ummm ok. With the military I bet the Springs has more guns then Pueblo by two or three fold. At least!!!

If you do not like old historic steel/ manufacturing cities you will not like Pueblo.

Pueblo may remind one of Cleveland, Pittsburgh or even Buffalo, where I grew up, with steel mills--but it is not even close to that size of the steel mills in these cities or the culture and environment that has built up around them. It makes me laugh when People describe Pueblo as a dirty steel town--they have no idea! In fact I find Pueblo a relatively pleasant place with much to see and experience.

In my past, I had the experience to work in the middle of a very large steel town, in Lackawanna, NY which is just south of Buffalo. I worked at a Ford Stamping Plate, just down the road from the expansive, and I mean expansive, Bethlehem Steel Mill. After work, I would go to these pubs, frequented by burly muscled patrons, grimy rough in their everyday clothes of their bowling or local union shirt and "in your face" blue collar. It was an amazing experience with many stories that I oft tell about my experiences.

What really is wrong with a "dirty" steel town. We certainly needed to work further on environmental concerns and forcefully enforce existing regulations but steel mills and heavy industry are extremely important industries in this country. It makes me angry when these ignorant people who spend their lives in white collar offices and complain about the likes of Commerce City near the Denver area. The country cannot base its economic future on the white collar jobs. We need to maintain and rebuilt the heavy industrial might of the USA and stop allow that type of work going overseas.
