Chalk full of family cafes and upscale restaurants (and of course Mexican food), Pueblo is no longer just known for livestock shows and hot-rod expos.
Pueblo boasts City Park which features a zoo and carnival rides and Lake Pueblo State Park which features fishing, boating and other outdoor activities. If you are looking to discover Pueblo’s history, check out Rosemount Museum and Steelworks Museum of Industry & Culture.

This week brings us to Loveland Pass, Colorado. You may remember a few weeks back we took a look at Loveland, Colorado. Loveland Pass, Colorado is a ski resort and is oftentimes what people tend to think of when speaking about Loveland, Colorado. Those of us from Colorado know there is a difference between the town and ski resort. The ski resort of Loveland Pass, Colorado is ideally located near Denver, Colorado near the Continental Divide. There are two counties near the Loveland Pass ski resort – Clear Creek County and Summit County. Clear Creek County is home to Georgetown, a sleepy Colorado mountain town that used to be a part of the Colorado gold strike back in the day. Summit County is the larger of the two counties and is where multiple Colorado ski resorts are located, including Keystone, Breckenridge, Copper Mountain and Vail Pass.

We are taking a unique approach to our Fresh Place Friday this week by highlighting a city that isn’t as much known for being a great place to live but instead being an awesome place to visit. Mosca, Colorado is named for the nearby Mosca Pass that was founded by Spanish explorer, Luis de Moscoso de Alvarado. It sits with some of Colorado’s oldest towns in the center of the ancient San Luis Valley.
What attract visitors year after year are the massive sand dunes that have been swept by the wind up against the Sangre de Cristo Mountains. These dunes get as high as 750 feet but that’s not the only natural phenomenon. Winding rivers run atop the sand that have drawn so much attention that the Nature Conservancy leads daily tours or this natural wonder along with four- wheeling tours of the dunes.
While you’re there, check out some of the amazing wildlife that roams the wetlands preserve along with the ranchlands. Take a bike ride along the 9-mile bike path, camp out or find lodging and a few great restaurants at the crossroads in Mosca, Colorado.
As Colorado movers, we are always looking forward to bringing in new residents to the state but if you are looking for a flat out awesome place to visit, Mosca, Colorado is it!
