Fun things to do in and around Pueblo
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.
Blessed with water, sunshine and fertile soil, St. Charles Mesa was settled in the late 1800s/early 1900s by mostly Italian immigrants. These families continue to farm the land of their ancestors with world-famous Mira Sol chiles and lots of other farm-fresh wonders. During the growing and harvest seasons, people can visit farms to buy produce and even pick their own.
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."
Dine, stroll or enjoy a boat or gondola ride along this river-inspired park. After a devastating flood in 1921, the Arkansas River was diverted to a different location. The Historic Arkansas Riverwalk commemorates the river’s original location with history, public art, interactive fountains, and great events. The international headquarters for the Professional Bull Riders Association also saddles up along the Riverwalk.
