The town of Imperial is so fun! It's right next to the Mississippi, so you can always take a nice walk down by the river. Imperial is also home to 2 amazing schools, both that are very nice and have amazing programs. In Imperial, you are never truly that far away from things which is very nice. You are easily a 10 to 15 minute drive to the grocery store, and you can easily access medical clinics and urgent cares easily as well. Imperial is also right next to the quaint little town of Kimmswick, which is very old school and has many heartfelt people, and amazing food! Imperial is really the full package deal!!

In the winter, its freezing cold. In the summer, burning hot. Fall and spring have a very short, 1 to 2 week window of being the perfect temperature before it becomes freezing or burning. In the winter time, people here head to a warm building or heater. In the summer, air conditioning is a must. Therefore shorts and coats and sweaters and sunglasses are all major parts of the wardrobe. As far as natural disasters go, tornadoes are the biggest issue, and we usually get 2 to 4 big tornadoes that do a decent amount of damage, along with some thunderstorms and the very rare blizzard that does damage, but not much else. We have droughts and earthquakes on occasion, and sometimes the Missouri river floods and backs up water ways, but the biggest issue is always tornadoes.
There are a lot of hidden gems among the Imperial community. Some include Holties (they have THE BEST chicken wings), O'Daisy Salon and Spa (I trust Crystal's, the owner, abilities immensely), The Relaxation Center (amazing massages done by the most bubbly woman you'll ever meet), Old Town Kimmswick (perfect for an afternoon out with friends for shopping and pie at the Blue Owl), and Trattoria Guiseppie (a little hole-in-the-wall Italian joint with the best pasta around). Some community highlights are the schools (Fox C-6, specifically the Seckman schools, have some of the best teachers around- the high school Honors/AP program is incredible), Ride On St. Louis (an equine assisted therapy barn located just past Kimmswick), and Mastadon State Historic Site and Park (great trails and scenery). Lastly, the location of Imperial is quite perfect. You can live there and have room to breathe but still be within driving distance of retail and groceries and only 30 minutes from St. Louis, which is seriously one of the coolest cities when it comes to activities, venues, and food culture.
