Review of Springfield, Missouri

Star Rating - 8/11/2018
I've lived here almost 10 years. And it's okay. It's just...okay. If you have to live in Missouri, this is a decent place to do it. I'd rather not, though. Lots of good restaurants and schools. Has everything you need to live conveniently. You can keep chickens in your yard. Traffic and stoplights are a b*tch and explains the tendency of Springfield drivers to nearly run red lights. Politics are mixed, I've seen groups for almost all types here. Rent's really low! But your wages might be, too.
