Farmington, MO is a really nice place to live, with only a couple of negative points against it. The crime rate is a bit high, and the housing market could use a boost. Overall, however, it's a good place to live for families, couples, or singles. The weather is pretty great, although we can get some pretty rough storms in the summer months. Living in Farmington may not be too exciting, but you will find some of the best areas in the state here. The people are really great here, and the job market makes it possible for everyone to live comfortably. Families with school-age children can rest assured that the schools rank high in graduation rates and state and national testing.
Recreational activities include the Farmington Family Fun Center, an amusement park that is great for the whole family. There's also the Critter Lane Petting Zoo, the Crown Ridge Tiger Sanctuary, and the Bonne Terre Mines, a great place to explore. I enjoy living here and I think most people would as well.
