Pueblo is filled with the flavor of the Old West. In town, you will find museums, historical sites and fascinating architecture. Surrounding the town is Pikes Peak to the north, the Wet Mountains to the west and the Sangre de Cristo Range to the south. To the east, the rolling Great Plains of the United States stretch out as far as the eye can see.

Currently struggling financially, the Pueblo Memorial Airport (PUB) only offers two daily, nonstop flights to and from Denver on board Mesa Airlines. The airport is working to increase its number of passengers in order to attract more airlines and provide more flights.
