Pueblo residents say there are many reasons to move here – and even more reasons why they plan to stay. A lot of people come to the area for job opportunities and then are wowed by the awesome climate, low cost of living and limitless things to do.
Pueblo is also becoming known for its welcoming spirit and diversity. Kristian Calaj moved here four years ago from Slovakia, by way of New York City. He says he came for the mountains, natural beauty and outdoor activities, but he has also found deep connections with the people in this multicultural community.
“In Pueblo, I meet people from different places, different countries and cultures all the time,” says Calaj, who teaches yoga at Studio Share. “This feels like a crossroads for all kinds of people. I have experienced nothing but a warm welcome from locals. My friends here accepted me as one of their own.”
