There are a lot of friendly people here. There is a pretty good variety of businesses (McDonald's, Dairy Queen, Sonic, Taco Bell, Hardee's, Wal-Mart, etc). Traffic is also great compared to larger towns like O'Fallon, MO!

I have lived in Mexico Missouri for nine years… It’s been a great community! I love that this town has an Aldi and Moshers and Walmart. I love that there’s a movie theater and bowling and miniature golf and a swimming pool and a large Ymca. Presser Hall has a lot to offer as far as community plays and entertainment! I have lived in Mexico Missouri for nine years… It’s been a great community! Great people and a lot of great churches! It has been a wonderful town… They have a lot of lakes and a lot of parks and they have hospitals and clinics. The only down part is that there’s not a lot of really high-paying jobs and opportunities. But overall we have enjoyed living here!
There is plenty of flat landscapes filled with farms. It is not very inhabited.
It is a great place to rest from the city as it incorporates a lot of nature around including stables, deers, bears, mountain lions that you can find almost anywhere. I would say it is a very quiet place and would love to come back and immerse myself in nature around.
