I lived there for most of my life, and most of the people there are not good. There is a lot of bad stuff that happens in that town from drugs to people drinking and driving. But even with all of that there is still a lot of support from the rest of the community around you to help with all of that. Aside from all the bad, everyone is family.

I have lived in Excelsior for all of my life. The town is rather small so its easy to get to know everyone. There are lots to do and it all is easy to walk to. The new Comunity Center in town is amazing and a great place to spend your time. We have small local businesses that are personable and can't be found anywhere else. I have loved living here and am glad to call this place my home.
I liked downtown Excelsior Springs and all the little shops there were. All the people in excelsior seem really friendly and inviting.
