My least favorite place in Colorado is anywhere east of Holly, south of Trinidad, north of Peetz, and anything west of Fruita.

Do you catch what I'm throwing down?

I love Colorado and that's why I live here. Wherever I go in Colorado is the place to be because for one, I'm so cool, but also because Colorado is so unlike the other places on the planet and so diverse within itself that you should be able to find some place you like.

Now I live in Pueblo West and enjoy where I live. I also respect other's enjoyment out of this state.

I live in Pueblo West and make the most of it. The traffic out here is not too bad, the stars are pretty ay night, it's close to a lot of my family etc.

I'm glad that Denver is right where it is and that CoSprings is right where it's at and that the mountains are right where they're at and that the prairies out east are there.

I love just about everything about America in fact.

God Bless America.

I was comfortable in Colorado Springs last week when I was enjoying the Colorado burger at Smash Burger off of N. Nevada on my way to Denver to see a friend in the hospital.

My wife took some time off during the week this week during my weekend so we could go someplace to enjoy our anniversary. We could have gone to Manitou Springs but decided to go to Breckenridge instead.

Favorite places: Boulder(home), Mantiou Springs an underrated jewel, Aspen where I now spend time (tons of roots, very early merchantile, cabins, land vacation property ect . previous homes to both sides of my family), and Breckenridge where my great, great grand father was once mayor(Grand Valley now called Parachute, again family, cattle,oil more cabins, place of the last US train robbery..the real Butch Cassidy near grand dad's,aunt's, uncles ranches , will be spreading a beloved relatives ashes there very soon ), Fairplay/South Park too many reasons to list-special mention Kenosha Pass. Least favorite: would have been quick to answer that about a year ago..have no real true dislike for anywhere in our great state now. Though I have lived in Denver off and on for many years..it's not nor will it ever be a place I truly call home.

come on don't act like you know know what he means. Pueblo leans towards the rough-and-tumble side

My least favorite is Cortez because it's a dinky little village in the middle of the desert with nothing around it

My favorite as far as scenery-wise is Aspen, my favorite as far as living is Denver

This is actually one of the funnier misconceptions about Pueblo. Pueblo is more of a live and let live town and I have never had a issue or been in a fight here.

Can I make a sincere suggestion since you seem pretty involved in that community. WTH doesn't Pueblo level those gross disgusting homes you see on the right as you drive south on I25 by the steel plant? Damn that looks ghetto.

I know that part of town. It is actually a very historic area with the houses built in the early 1900's and some in the late 1800's and where many of the steel workers lived and still live. I know its not as nice as the newer neighborhoods but I would be against leveling them.
