""The Blocks" - a little-known gem of a neighborhood"

The Mesa Junction district spans several blocks near the Rawlings Library, in the historic district of Pueblo. Known as "the Blocks" by the locals, this small neighborhood stands on the hill overlooking Union Ave. and most of Pueblo's downtown. This part of town is one of Pueblo's hidden gems. In just a few blocks, you can find a beautiful community garden; Latka Studios, a gorgeous art gallery that provides amazing sculptures throughout the city; and the Cup and Bowl, a pottery gallery that hosts art classes and studio space. There are some beautiful apartments in this area, old eccentric homes, and wonderful neighbors. This is the place to find block parties on the weekends, neighbors inviting you over for a burger, fire pits in backyards, cyclists.

The only real downside to the neighborhood is that there is no grocery store within maybe four or five miles. But, besides that, there are multiple restaurants, coffee shops, bookstores, bike shops, and bakeries. It's a beautiful part of town.
