Pueblo has put it's best foot forward with this community investment. Good walk, good restaurants and a bit of Pueblo history...
it is a very relaxing place to watch people while you eat your lunch and or do your daily jog, Located in the heart of Pueblo, a place where alot of events are held through out the year. You will have to experience it for yourself, I really enjoy just going down during the summer and visiting the restraunts along the way,
Begin at the restored historic Pueblo train depot. It's open & free and you can do a self-guided tour of this incredible architectural feat. Parking is free. Then, take a leisurely walk down picturesque Union Ave with its wonderful shops of unique items, bakeries, ice cream & gelato shops and art galleries. At the end of a lovely 3 block walk...the icing on the cake: the Riverwalk. Lush scenery, water with gondolas & boats, restaurants where you can eat outside in comfort both winter & summer next to the sound of moving water. A perfect place to walk for exercise or relaxation. The Riverwalk, the Pueblo depot and historic Union Ave is a fun destination stop for a memorable day.
I am not a Pueblo native and usually don't have a lot of good things to say @ times about Pueblo places to frequent, but this IS A MUST SEE. It is beautiful, relaxing and so enjoyable to just sit back, relax, cool off, feed the ducks, get something to eat. You really cannot go wrong with visiting here, You can rent the old time paddle boats, (I loved it) they also have a small river boat that you can ride around the river walk and I believe they give history about the area in the tour around the river walk. Restaurants available from the top or from below. Great restaurants to choose from. Don't miss going to see. Well worth your time and relaxation. Also when it is so hot and miserable kids from 1 to 101 can play in the water fountains and the kids love it. I enjoy it. Everyone enjoys it. It is a nice and safe place to walk around and look at all sorts of things. I really can't say enough good things about it. it's a place you really want to take time out and visit. ENJOY.,,,,, RELAX......... IT IS A MUST SEE AND GO
The Pueblo River Walk and Historic area are unique in that they offer a break from the everyday pace. I find myself able to relax and enjoy reading a good book or moseying around the area feeling like a tourist in a place I've lived since 1992. I appreciate the friendly attitude and diversity of the people I encounter, who are never to busy to say hello or smile and acknowledge a stranger. It is so pleasing to be in a fairly populated area with a friendly small town feel. I am reminded, when friends and family visit, that I take for granted what Pueblo in general, but especially what the River Walk and Historic area of Pueblo have to offer. From the River Walk to the Veterans Bridge, The "Home of Heroes" Medal of Honor statues, The Pro Bull Riders, the coffee shops to the Union Depot, and then some. Wow...!!! See what I mean? What a nice area to feel like an, "Out of Towner", in the place I live. I won't give a 5th tab because the shops are usually closed on Sunday, when people are out and they should be open.
My husband and I often go to the riverwalk for an evening stroll. It is nicely paved, there are no streets to cross, and there are plenty of opportunities for people-watching. The fact that our favorite sushi place is on the riverwalk is a bonus also.
I took the "volksmarch", a five mile walk starting near the Riverwalk. You walk all around the Riverwalk and around some interesting neighborhoods of Pueblo. There is a variety of restaurants nearby.
It's cute. There are some shops and restaurants. Hey, it's not San Antonio, but it's worth a walk if your in Pueblo.
Listen folks, the city of Pueblo has done a wonderful job in developing this beautiful, relaxing and enjoyable River Walk, which is a venue for many local food and musical activities. No, not on the order of San Antonio, but perhaps better, because it does not have the crowds, noise, trash and solicitors trying to rush you into their facility. Excellent restaurant located nearby which provide menus to meet any palate (or age). Give it a try and I believe you will be surprised at what is available to you at the Historic Arkansas River Walk of Pueblo.
Good walking views.. Good restaurants... Pretty view.... Little expensive for extra activities. ex Boating.
