Fly to Pueblo
The city of Pueblo initially flourished due to steel mills and the mining industry, but has become known for more than just steel over the years. The Historic Arkansas Riverwalk of Pueblo, Lake Pueblo State Park and the Creative Corridor are just some of the attractions that entice visitors to Pueblo.
Proclaimed by Congress as "America's Home for Heroes," Pueblo offers culture, nature and history. One of the most popular attractions is the Historic Arkansas Riverwalk of Pueblo (HARP), which hosts different events and is home to restaurants and a farmers market. If you like outdoor pursuits, you can go fishing, hiking and kayaking in Lake Pueblo State Park. Take the time to see Greenhorn Mountain and the Wet Mountain range too before you head home. If you prefer museums, live music and cafes, a leisurely walk through the Creative Corridor is a priority.
