I would say the riverwalk area... which is right by AT&T... is a nice enough area especially in the day time.

The Riverwalk area is awesome. I live in Monument (north Colorado Springs suburb), and when my girlfriend and I want to spend a Saturday "downtown", we drive right past Colorado Spring's bland downtown and head to Pueblo. The Springs has nothing like the Riverwalk, or even the Union Street (I think that's the street's name) shopping district. Downtown Spring's Acacia Park is a magnet for the homeless, in full display in front of trendy boutique shops and hipster bars. I don't get that feel in Pueblo. Yeah, Pueblo is more working-class, and also more culturally rich and diverse...and it's usually 15 degrees warmer than the frigid, sub-alpine climate of Monument. This Anglo really enjoys the Spanish/Mexican (south of the Arkansas River was literally once Spain and Mexico) history of the region, which subtly and naturally (unlike Santa Fe, NM) influences the architecture, religion and culture of the area. There is also (via the old steel industry) an Italian cultural influence in the region. When one passes from the Springs to Pueblo, one passes from the new to the very old Colorado. I've sometimes thought about making the commute from living in Pueblo and working in the Springs.

They will break ground on the first phase of the riverwalk project this year and it should have a big impact on downtown.

We live in the Belmont area since Dec. 2015 and it is a nice area, pretty safe as far as I can tell. And it is near the trail that goes from Pueblo (the Belmont area) to the Pueblo reservoir, that is a great plus too for us.
