Just outside of independence and Kansas City, everything is local and the schools are great! The neighborhoods are quiet and the general population is nice. There is hardly any major crime.
Review Blue Springs
I love that this area is clean and maintained. I love the Adams Dairy shopping area, it is really nice. Being close to Independence isn't the greatest but it is still an up and coming area!
Blue springs is an amazing place to live. The school's are incredible. The public safety departments are reliable and trustworthy. It's a truly amazing place to grow up. I wouldn't trade it for the world, and I can't wait to make my mark!
