Review Blue Springs
This is a quaint town. It is very family oriented. I enjoy the atmosphere of Blue Springs, Missouri. The area has great recreational parks and also has museums and other educational venues. I would rate this town 4.0 out of 5 starts. It has a awesome environment for culture and a great variety of restaurants. Blue Springs also had a variety of Churches for those interested in pursuing a religious environment. I have been in Blue Springs Mo. for approximately 10 years and have had a very excellent experience. We have not had any unfortunate events and found this town to be very friendly and accommodating. I would encourage people that were looking for a town to raise a family to definitely consider this town to be one to be at the top of your list.
I love that this city is still develomentally growing. The schools are great. I grew up in this town and am planning on raising my future kids here. There are lots of family friendly activities such as parks, bowling alley, skating rink, movie theater, hiking trails ect. In the summer time they offer outdoor movies and concerts in the park.
