Troy, MO is a town/city not as small as Bryant Pond, ME where I lived as a child but no where near as large as St. Charles, MO. Unless you live in the city commute is the magic word. You are within 45-60 minutes away from conveniences of city living. We have small strip malls here in town. If you are looking for Sears, Home Depot or stores other than Wal-Mart you need to go to Wentzville, St. Peters, St. Charles or even St. Louis. There are plenty of routes to use to get to your desinations as long as you don't mind the commute. You can feel secure living in a small some what friendly location. It is hot and humid for a 2-4 weeks in the summer. Land locked, and the food at restaurants is average. After living in New England for 30 years I have spent 11 years here and my list of fine dining is short. The price of homes varies from inexpensive older homes to expensive newer developments. You must be very careful not to buy the fixer upper that has structural damage. If you are unfortunate enough to purchase one of these there is little to no recourse to recoupe your monies. This is also the case for modular homes as well. It's an okay place but I am not planning on retiring here.
