We may possibly be relocating to the Pueblo area. I have read some comments that Pueblo itself is not too nice. Can anybody recommend best areas around Pueblo to live with school age kids and a reasonable commute? thanks for any suggestions...

I know many people on this forum trash Pueblo. But most of them are only repeating hear say or only what they see flying by on I25. It is true. There are some poor places in Pueblo where it is not desirable to live. But there also are some real nice places. Also there are several small towns near. Beulah, Colorado City, Pueblo West, Canon City. A great deal depends on what you like and want. Every town and city, I ever heard of have some less than desirable areas. Pueblo sits out into the plains but is an old established city that had a large steel-mill that did smell and spu(sp?) black clouds. That is all in the past. Pueblo has been cleaning that mess up for many yrs. The places I mentioned are all west or sw of Pueblo. There are some small towns that are east into the plains even more. North the towns are closer to Colorado Springs but there are a couple there too. South no towns close, I can think of.

If you can give us a better idea of what you consider a small town and what you expect to be available there. Then maybe we or I can give you a better idea.

Myself, I am not fond of cities nor the plains but if one does, then there certainly is nothing wrong with living in a great number of areas in Pueblo. I believe Pueblo may be about the lest expensive place to live and buy.

Gated apartment community? In Pueblo near St Mary Corwin? Around south Lake and Lakeview? Hmmm... Interesting.

The area around St. Mary Corwin (known to locals as Bessemer) is the roughest part of Pueblo. I know which complex you're talking about, but I would encourage you to stay away from that neighborhood at all cost.

I agree with Durango Bound. If you are talking about the apartments I am thinking of I would never live there. There are some nice apartments on the north side in Eagle Ridge or by Park West near Highway 50 and Pueblo Blvd. There are, also, some apartments off Pueblo Blvd just south of the Walmart that you might want to look at.

We are planning on moving to pueblo next spring. What are some of the better and safest neighborhoods with about 20,000-40,000 residents but still short commute. Housing between $115,000-130,000 in cost. Schools don't matter

Look at Pueblo West. Pueblo is an older city and some parts are fairly run down, but it gets more of a bad rap than it really deserves. Areas like Pueblo West appear to be wonderful places to live. It has the great Colorado climate, access to a wonderful river, views (although from a distance) of beautiful mountains, and access to Pueblo for some of the other things you may want. There is no Costco in either city, but there is a Sam's in Pueblo near I-25. IMO, people that don't shop at either Sam's or Costco are massively overpaying for groceries.

There are very few properties in the 115 to 130 range, but the ones that are there are certainly nice enough to live in and be happy about it.

The property values were so good my wife and I contemplated living there but the health care options were not good enough for her profession.

I will say the areas to avoid as that is easier. The east side and the area known as Bessemer, it is off Northern by the Interstate. Also, the area known as the west side by the state hospital.
