Pueblo is the only colorado city that I don't feel safe in certain areas. Heck I feel safer in Denver.

Don’t get all the Pueblo bashing. If it keeps house prices down, guess it is OK. Areas east of the highway and near the steel mill are not the best, but got a house in Pueblo West, 10 miles away. Acre lot mansion for 300K. Yes, middle of nowhere, but quiet and you can get from point A to point B without dying of old age. The 3-mile drive to Walmart in Aurora took so long, if I did not write down what I was looking for would have forgotten why I was there.

One hour to Springs, two to DTC if I am ever in the mood for that level of traffic. Parking in downtown Denver is such a joy-filled experience.

I'm in the Springs and grew up north of Denver- this sounds like paradise to me!

Planned community. The drive on the main street downhill to the north entrance to Lake Pueblo State Park never fails to impress. The view of the valley and huge houses stretching for miles. Unlike the sea of tiny homes south of DIA, these are all custom built. This site says the population was 10,000 in 2000, 30,000 in 2010. Build out planned to 60,000.

I am sure that The Villages in Florida is nice, but here I step outside my front door, Pikes Peak, Greenhorn, 12,000 ft., 40 miles away, clear as can be.

My only “complaint” is the area was designed as a dark skies community. No street lamps. Pitch black at night. Star gazing. So dark that I have driven past my own house at night several times.
