I live in the Springfield, mo area. This area is not the best area, obviously there are better places to be (Like anywhere). I have lived here most of my life and haven not encountered much crime, however I know there is crime happening all around me. I used to live on the North side of Springfield. The North and the West side are the worst sides. I now live on the South side which is the better areas. The people in Springfield are on average nice people. People driving here is never nice, but there are some good Samaritans. On the South side, they have nice neighborhoods where you do not have to worry about the people you live around, and it is not over populated. If I could start out living anywhere in Springfield it would definitely be the South side of Springfield. Compared to everywhere else in my Country, there are nicer places, but there are also worse places, so I am thankful I live here and not worse parts of the country.

Most available jobs in this area are entry level positions. Great for high schoolers and college students, but not for someone looking for a carreer. You'll have to search for a good job.
The hospitals are fantastic, but you can often find people who abuse drugs or alcohol.
