This growing community, situated off U.S. 50, offers a surprising amount of conveniences for visitors. The hub of the community is located at McCullouch and Joe Martinez boulevards, where a mini civic center area houses a few restaurants. In addition, there are about a dozen lodging facilities ranging from hotels to B&Bs in the greater Pueblo area. Downtown Pueblo, just eight miles east, offers a diverse mix of eateries, a restored historic district, a riverwalk area and shopping districts.
With annexations, Pueblo West contains about 26,000 acres of contiguous lands. The community is also situated just north of Lake Pueblo State Park, which contains a lake suitable for boating, swimming, sailing and fishing. Maintained campsites are also available, in addition to miles of hiking and biking trails, including a local greenway that runs all the way to downtown Pueblo.
Pueblo West also has a wide variety of outdoor activities. Approximately, 4,600 acres have been reserved for neighborhood parks, playgrounds and an open greenbelt area.
