Just not my cup of tea - 8/9/2018
Very good cost of living. I am from Springfield where there is an abundance of Chinese food in both restaurant and store form, so if you love Chinese food like I do, that's a plus. Good colleges here- Drury is amazing! Can't say for other parts of the state.

However, it's not for me. I don't like this region. It's just not comfortable for me, I find I prefer the weather, food, and culture of other places. Crime rate is notoriously high. Politics are...I'd say they're purple, really, more conservative leaning but if that's not your thing you can find liberals and others.

It could easily be a great place to live for someone who is more suited to this region of the country. But not for Read More

Love It! - 6/26/2018
We moved here 5 years ago and absolutely love it! Thepeople here are very friendly and polite. We live near Branson and Springfield. It is extremely beautiful here, and there is a lot of fun activities nearby. We enjoy hiking, biking, kayaking, boating, camping, and the many other things to do in Branson and Read More

Gateway Has Become Getaway - 4/19/2017
There was a time St.Louis was the last civilized jumping off point before one embarked upon the wild prairie. For me and my ancestors, it was the best place to grow up with everything going for it, old European style neighborhoods, no crime, dedication to arts and architecture, restaurants, schools and the best in medicine. Now the sad lament. Everything stated in the negative about St. Louis is true. My son refers to it as the city two farts away from becoming Detroit. I fault the city's management over the past nearly forty years. They are all criminals who should be jailed for what they let happen to this once great city. I would move back if I recognized anything! The overhaul of the riverfront is a bogus sham that should have never been authorized. Total waste of money. It was beautiful the way it was. They actually paved over a part of historical front with asphalt!! I was mortified. The vortex that is now Chicago has put St. Louis in a windtunnel which I fear it will never Read More

missouri - 12/5/2015
Missouri is a mixed bag - like most states. Politically, it is very conservative. Mo has the most restrictive laws in the U.S. on abortion, marijuana,and public access to govt. records. On the flip-side, it has some of the least restrictive laws on firearms, property ownership and sex offenses. So, if you are a rich, gun-toting pedophile, welcome to the Show-Me-State. Physically, the state is beautiful and offers great recreational opportunities. I live, and have lived my entire life, near the Ozark National Scenic Riverways, which almost makes the Bible thumping, 'the'll ner take our guns,'gay-hating mentality of the majority tolerable.
Notice I said almost. After 40 years here, my wife and I are getting ready to retire and move to Atlantic Canada. In a nutshell, if you are a liberal, or really even just a mod dem as we are,this is not the place for Read More

Worst place to live - 2/2/2014
It is the most filthy place to live I have ever been. The locals are all related and look at any new people as their income. You will be ripped off EVERY time you hire someone to work on your home. There is no law saying someone has to be certified, so some guy claiming to be a plumber, electrician, roof repair, ect will not only charge you much more than other locals, but will not do the job right, i hired so many people and some actually laughed in my face as they took my money, and left my family to suffer, sparks shooting out of my electrical, roof pouring in rain, you get the picture.

I am not making this up, all the small towns around here do this and though i know this happens everywhere, i have never seen a people so warped and mentally ill enough as to be so unashamed. There is no shame here, there is also no law, the sheriff will show up but will do nothing, and even the locals feel the same about the so called law enforcement....do NOT move here for any Read More
