I was looking at towns with 100,000 population to 150,000 population. The job offer was in Pueblo though. I guess if I should look for another smaller city, then Fort Collins would be better then?

My advise is to visit Pueblo and see if you like it.

If you want a city that's more vibrant with a strong cohort of Millennials then Fort Collins would be a far better choice. Of course, it also depends on what kind of lifestyle you're looking for. Pueblo has a couple things going for it, such as the low COL and a State Fair, while Fort Collins has other things like an educated populace, a strong economy, multiple entertainment options, and a populace that lives in the 21st century.

Pueblo has a lot going for it from a growing university with the defending national champions in football, same amenities you see in Denver from the state fair, art scene with the Sangra De Crist Art complex with the Buell Childrens Museum, musicals (both national at Memorial Hall and the art center and local at the local theaters), great street fairs one is a top 5 fair in the nation to great restaurants, and great outdoor activities from Lake Pueblo with the bike trails to Pueblo Mountian Park in Beulah and the Riverwalk in downtown that is expanding along with the convention center. Pueblo is, also, at our peak population and a "sellers" market for houses with jobs being added from the new rail center in downtown, aerospace and yes weed growing. Will the OP like it here? Honestly I do not know why I think he should visit and see but one can be happy here as there is a lot to do especially for a region of only 210,000 people.

I think so.

Also if you can fit it in the budget, look at Boulder.

I would tell the OP to visit Pueblo, Boulder and Fort Collins to see what city he likes best. Also if he has a good job in Pueblo keep that in mind too. If he really likes the job here I am sure he could like the city.

Agree.

P.S. My great grandmother was born in Peblo in 1896. I don't hate that town.

And I know Pueblo is not for everyone. Its a manufacturing town with a southwest flair. If you do not like that kind of city you will not like it here. Why I tell people to visit but its not this bad town some on here make it out to be and we tend to be more progressive on social issues then cities many times our size and I say that as a gay male who has a pit bull. I would not be welcome in many towns even Denver due to my puppy.

The OP should also keep in mind his career prospects should the job the pan out- Pueblo is not a hotbed of job prospects if a lined-up job should fall through.

That would depend on the job and since we do not know what it is we cant say.
