"A great alternative to Pueblo"

I seem to find myself in Pueblo West several times a year. If I'm ever traveling to the zoo or somewhere else on the west side of Pueblo I usually get off the highway early and drive through this area even it it takes a little longer. I love how the area is spread out and many of the homes use xeriscaping in their yards. In some ways, it reminds me a lot of being in Arizona. many homes in this town are on some acreage and you can find some small farm animals and horses about. There are also more traditional subdivisions where the homes are all a little closer. Overall, the schools here are pretty good and they rank higher than average when it comes to state wide comparisons.

There are enough restaurants and shops in Pueblo West that I would think residents wouldn't have to leave often unless they wanted to. However, since Pueblo is so close the drive wouldn't be far anyway. The cost of living in Pueblo West is very good. The average median household income is just shy of $59,000 which is about 4K higher than the state average, but you can buy a nice single family home here for $182,179 which is almost 55K less than the state average.

There are almost 30,000 residents in this quiet area and many of them work in retail trade and health care and social assistance. The majority of the residents are white, followed by Hispanic.

"Pueblo West"

Pueblo West is a planned community about seven miles west of Pueblo. It's in the middle of the remote prairie land near the reservoir. This is a great place for families to settle down, as the town is just minutes from Pueblo but still quieter and safer than the city. Because Pueblo West is a very young community, founded in 1975, the houses are mostly new. Landscaping is difficult in this region, because of the high desert environment, but many of the homes have spacious yards and even substantial acreage.

Pueblo West has plenty of locally owned businesses, including restaurants, coffee shops, hardware stores, and boutiques. One of my favorite spots to go in Pueblo West is The Perfect Cup, a coffee and donut shot off of Purcell. There is very little night life to speak of, but there are plenty of hiking, camping, boating, and swimming opportunities nearby, due to the nearness of the reservoir.

Homes in Pueblo West are a little pricier than Pueblo, but certainly still affordable. On average, homes run between $150,000 to $210,000.
