Pueblo is not ugly as we have a nice view of the mountains and plains and our western suburbs reach the mountains. Some of the best sunsets in the state I have seen here.

yeah right.

How's that crime rate doing? last I heard it was about triple the state average. and the air quality is terrible. those inversions.

I guess a view of mountains is OK, but to me, hey: if you're gonna live in CO ya gotta BE in the mountains.

Actually there has been a big discussion as the fbi counts more things now while Colorado Springs has a higher murder rate per capita then Pueblo and larger disturbances including closing down the fair due to a gang fight. Also I tell people if Pueblo was unsafe I'd move as no city is worth it and I don't move because I feel safe.

I don't want to live in the mountains but I would like to have a cabin someday.

Thank you for the explanations; so you guys don't use heating oil in Colorado ...

It's so good to know that there is a Sam's Club in Pueblo.

I have heard many people say that your state is BEAUTIFUL!

I see what you mean - there is no such thing as perfect city, or state. That being said, I have heard many people say that your state (CO) is BEAUTIFUL!

Okay, this is true. Fort Collin is far enough north to not fall into the geography of Denver metro, so lets call it 4 cities. Other than that, I'd say all the others are large towns, not necessarily cities with suburbs and exburbs. Tomato, tahmato. Although the whole area north of Denver to Fort Collins is uniquely different than the front range south of Denver due to all the small town concentration in the area.

LOL. How about City of Loveland, City of Longmont, City of Aurora, etc? There are at least 24 cities in the state (see table in below link), and probably many more as well:

So Grand Junction and Durango don't count?
