I agree, neither northeastern or southeastern Colorado are very interesting, but I must say that southeastern Colorado is more interesting than northeastern.

Ghetto or not, it's a part of Pueblo that will probably be here for many more years. Pueblo wasn't erected to look pretty or pleasing to the passers-by driving up and down I-25.

Your assuming I don't know history and that's fine people in Pueblo should stop complaining when people look down on their city real simple.

Have to fully agree with you bro, and I know Colorado history from roots, experience, just don't go shooting my mouth off every week about it. Pueblo is pretty ugly aesthetically..period

Maybe you have superior negotiating skills...

Boulder is a nice place although I have never lived there , it is surrounded by many small towns on the eastern side of the rocks. It's a beautiful place to stay.

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.
Now this is a post I can agree with. There isn't really a town in Colorado I dislike. Trinidad, maybe, but that's because I lived there when I went to high school and don't have a lot of good memories of the little town. But even as I may dislike the town itself, its setting is close to ideal, with some really magnificent country just west. As a whole I think Colorado is an awesome state. Denver is a great city, and there are a bunch of small towns that are super cool. If I had the opportunity to move back I'd probably jump on it.

Most favorite - Grand Junction. Love the river, the bookcliffs, and Colorado National Monument.
I love Grand Junction too! I'm starting at Colorado Mesa University this August, Can't wait!

I too went to high school in Trinidad, but for less than a year when my parents got divorced and my dad moved down there.
