Pueblo Things to Do

  • Pueblo Weisbrod Air Museum

    Fred Weisbrod began collecting vintage military aircraft at the Pueblo airport (a World War II air base) in 1972. A group of veterans formed the Pueblo Historical Aircraft Society in 1985, to help preserve Weisbrod's collection. The planes were moved inside two old hangars. Since then, the collection has grown, and now includes some other military...

  • Stay Away - Pueblo, Colorado RiverWalk

    This place is a DUD and tourist trap. Pueblo RiverWalk - http://www.puebloharp.com/ the cookie store was a waste of money. The brownie tasted awful, the snickerdoodles, peanut butter, "special" mother's day cookies, were all disgusting. The whole cookie store was overpriced for such nasty treats. Where did these people learn how to bake? The Pueblo...

  • ATV Park

    West of town is a city park that is just open desert with some hills, used for motorcycle and ATV fun. It is pretty big, and the time my daughter took me there with the ATV's, it was empty but for one trail bike. My son in law broke three ribs there another time.

    Not in Pueblo, but over an hour away in the mountains. Pueblo is still about the closest reference point. Built by an eccentric individual over 20 years, and still under construction.

The table cloth had several dust/bits of something all over it. I brushed most aside as I sat down-asked the waiter about it who said the air filter (pointed to a unit in the...

  • Below Average Cuisine (Mexican)

    Searching for a new restaurant in Pueblo for Mexican food, I stopped hoping to find good tasting food with a menu that has lots of choices. What I found was a very limited menu, with few combination plates. I finally chose the tamale and chili relleno plate. The food tasted okay, but the whole restaurant had the feel that they needed an update on...

  • Good atmosphere and beer

    Another VTer recommended the vegetarian boxty, so as my spouse is veg., we had to try it. Food was good, but for most of us, Irish food is fairly plain, not much spice used. So, I suspect that what we had was pretty authentic. There were six of us, so we tried a lot of different Irish items, and everyone enjoyed what they had. The menu also has...

Pueblo What to Pack

  • by zora55 Updated Mar 15, 2007

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Bring sunscreen, and lots of water during the summer as the temperatures tend to climb over 100 degrees. Bring a heavy coat, gloves, hat, tire chains, and extra funds with you during the winter- it gets very cold; and as of this last year tends to snow and blow A LOT. You could get stuck here. Best times to visit- spring and fall.
