Pueblo has a diverse city with a small town feel. It’s uniquely situated along the Colorado Rockies, within the Arkansas River and Fountain Creek confluence. It has a dry, desert climate at 4,600 feet above sea level. Pueblo is known as the “Steel City” due to being one the top steel-producing towns in the country. Pueblo is an attractive place to settle down due to having the lowest home prices of all Colorado cities, and its location along Interstate 25. The Pueblo Zoo is a popular family attraction with 350 animals exhibits. The El Pueblo History Museum tells the story of the town from its founding in 1842. Several groups, including Italians, Slovenians, and African Americans, have been in the town since the beginning. The museum tells their stories and provides a look into the past. Art lovers spend their time in the Sangre De Cristo Arts Museum. It showcases a wide variety of art from the American Southwest. Along with all the culture Pueblo has to offer, the city also has a nice golf scene.
