Liberty, Missouri is just the perfect place to raise your family. It's a suburban area where you are close to the country side to enjoy some quiet time, and not to far from the downtown Kansas City area. Downtown Kansas City is filled with amazing scenery, restaurants, people, music, and most importantly its famous barbecue. you could say it the best of three worlds! The town of Liberty is developing substantially from the new businesses being built throughout the area. Another great feature of this area are the sports fans. The whole Kansas City area unifies together when it comes to sports, especially the Kansas City Royals when they won the World Series in 2015 against the New York Mets. The whole city came together, around 800,000 Royals fans, when the normal population of the city is around 400,000 people! Overall, I see much more growth for this amazing area and another World Series win for the Royals!

We recently moved to Liberty because it always a place that held all sorts of entertainment, resources and food. It was the place to be and my family finally decided to move to Liberty and we love it! The environment is incredible and we do not regret our move at all. In fact, we wished we moved earlier! It's a lovely town and the people are very kind.
Liberty is growing at an incredible pace! New stores and restaurants are coming to the city all of the time, and businesses are booming. Liberty provides the comfort of a college small town while also offering the amenities of a bigger city.
