Fun things to do in and around Pueblo

Pueblo is teeming with unique locations and authentic experiences. And, while it might take more than one trip to Pueblo, here are several Pueblo places that you must see!

Memorial is professionally managed by Global Spectrum and in the heart of Historic Downtown Pueblo.  With 1,600 seats, state of the art lighting and sound system, Memorial Hall is the premier entertainment facility in Pueblo.    

The Pueblo Railway Museum is a program of the Pueblo Railway Foundation ("PRF"). The mission is historic preservation of railroad equipment and history. The ultimate goal is to promote and foster an interest in railroading, the study and preservation of railroad history, the impact of the railroad on the history of Pueblo and the growth of the United States and related subjects for the education and satisfaction of all.

 In honor of Pueblo’s four Congressional Medal of Honor Recipients, the Pueblo Convention Center built the "Home of Heroes" Congressional Medal of Honor Memorial Plaza.  The four larger-than-life, sculpted and bronze statues flank the main entry and welcome you to the Pueblo Convention Center.  The Medal of Honor is the highest military award that can be bestowed upon a member of the United States Armed Forces; Teddy Roosevelt lobbied for one but never received it, and General George Patton said "I'd sell my immortal soul for that Medal."

Visit local Pueblo chile farms to experience the world-famous Pueblo chile in a way the whole family will enjoy. Meet the farmers who grow it, explore their farms, and even pick your own. Then, have it roasted fresh right before your eyes and enjoy the intoxicating aroma that'll keep you coming back for more. 

The InfoZone News Museum is an interactive news museum. The InfoZone News Museum's mission is to provide broader knowledge of news and information. The museum focuses on journalism, the First Amendment, historic news and current events that affect our world. The museum serves to promote the joy of reading and writing, to preserve and interpret the archives and artifacts of The Pueblo Chieftain and provide educational programs and exhibitions that enhance the Pueblo City-County Library District.

Pueblo, Colorado is the location for this innovative undertaking – and rightfully so – Pueblo is known as the Home of Heroes. The community boasts the unique distinction as being the home of four Congressional Medal of Honor recipients. President Dwight D. Eisenhower once remarked, after bestowing the Medal of Honor upon Raymond G. “Jerry” Murphy, “What is it in the water out there in Pueblo … all you guys turn out to be heroes.”  The Center's mission stems from the desire for all generations to understand and never lose sight of sacrifices made by civilians and veterans alike to elevate America as the greatest Country in the world.  

Where else in Colorado can you ride a roller coaster for a quarter and visit an African Lion? The Pueblo City Park offers a year-round zoo filled with more than 400 animals and beautiful native-plant gardens. The City Park Rides are open all summer, and rides cost only a quarter. The historic carousel is original to the Park, recently restored and worthwhile nostalgic trip.

The Repertory offers a variety of entertainment including live theatre, children's theatre, adult and children's workshops, dinner theatre, and murder mysteries.  

El Pueblo History Museum showcases the city's history and the region's many cultural and ethnic groups. The property includes a re-created 1840's adobe trading post and plaza, and the archaeological excavation site of the original 1842 El Pueblo trading post.  

With 11 days and half-a-million visitors, the Colorado State Fair is the perfect entertainment-filled end to the summer. From monster trucks and beloved Fiesta Day to carnival rides and livestock auctions, the Colorado State Fair is amplified family fun.
