Decent quality of life Posted On: 7/25/2010 7:58:32 AM
Independence, MO offers a decent quality of life to its residents. Having grown up here, I know quite a bit about what the city is really like. There are so many opportunities for entertainment, such as shopping, restaurants, movies, and recreational activities. Independence is the largest suburb of Kansas City, so there is always something going on. The crime rate isn't horrible in Independence and the climate is typical of the Midwest: hot summers and cold winters with mild autumns and springs. Independence has really nice neighborhoods, not so nice neighborhoods, and everything in between. The only complaint I have about living in this city are the schools. If you live in Independence, you are either in the Independence School District or the Fort Osage School District. While neither district is absolutely horrible, there are better places to send your kids. I went to school in the Independence School District and I graduated from high school feeling like I could have had a much higher quality education than I did. If you are looking to send your children to good schools but still want a good quality of living similar to Independence, look into Blue Springs (just east of Independence) or North Kansas City.
