I like that this city is a very small neighborhood. It is very family/kid friendly. The streets are quiet and not very busy. It is a good place to live and raise a family.

This area does not have much here. mostly shops and food places. There really isnt any entertainment around the town of crystal city. to have any fun you have to go to the nearest town like aronald. besides not having much entertainment, we do have a park and it is a quite place to live not many annoyances go on in the town and when something does happen it is an excitment for the people of the town.
Missouri weather is always changing from hot to cold! So you never know what you might have to be ready for from one day to another.
