I've always been drawn to slower paced towns, while still desiring the modern conveniences of today. That's probably why I've been living in Raymore, Missouri for the past 11 years. The biggest thing in town is Wal-Mart. It has a small town feel without having to live in the middle of nowhere.
I live in one of the best areas in Raymore, Walnut Estates, just off the main road through town. That was a huge selling point for me when I was house hunting here. I love that my American Family Insurance Agent, my Bronze Babe Tanning Salon, my Route 58 Car Wash, and my Little Folks Day Care are all in a line down the main strip, and all just minutes from my house. You can't ask for more convenience than that.
Now, if you like the hustle and bustle, lots of malls, movie theaters, bowling alleys, and what not, then this probably isn't the city for you.
