What's wrong with Riverside? It's kind of like Bakersfield, but without all the glitter.

Joss is was and always will be a Pueblo Honk. Oh btw Joss, what was going on at the SDC arts center last night? Looked like the place to be.


And because he's a Pueblo Honk, he will remain resentful against CoSprings because it's like our Jupiter... keeping SoCo from getting the crumbs that spill down from Denver.

I don't know of anything going on at the art center last weekend. However the place to be was the drive inn. Took us 30 minutes to get in and I think all 3 screens were sold out. Pueblo is very lucky to have one. Also Memorial Hall will have its grand reopening this week too. I will post pictures in the Pueblo thread. These are two great examples as to why Pueblo is my favorite city in the state.

There really are only two, or three cities in all of Colorado, so that certainly narrows down the answers.

Actually, the best parts of Colorado are small towns and the country.

But I guess if you are considering Trinidad (population 9,078) as a "city", then I guess I will include Alamosa as my "favorite" (although I am very fond of Walsenburg too).

My least favorite....well....that's a long list....LOL It would have to be *everything* on the Western slope with the exception of Grand Junction.

For a bigg-ish town, Pueblo isn't bad at all. At least you have a little breathing room to the East.

well when i say city i'm talking about cities, towns, etc. Alamosa isn't that bad, I almost went to Adams State but decided on Colorado Mesa instead. i don't really like Walsenburg though. What's wrong with the western slope?

Pueblo is poor but not the poorest city in the state. I mean Pueblo has money in fact some of the largest projects have been privately funded or funded by the citizens raising our taxes to support the projects. Some examples are the CSU Pueblo football stadium and the Riverwalk/ convention center/ Memorial Hall area.

I think a better example would be Aspen - Alamosa.
