I like living in Missouri City because everything you want is close by! Places like the mall and Town Center are just minutes away. Grocery stores like HEB, Kroger, Aldi, Walmart and Target are all close by. Great restaurants like Corelli's, Ninfas, Chick Fil A, Taco bell, Chipotle, and Papa John's, just to mention a few are all in Missouri City. There are also local libraries in Missouri City, which are great places to get your homework done. Also, it is a very diverse place to live. The community is safe because cops are always on patrol, keeping good watch over the city.

For the past 4 years I've been living here on Mo City, I've seen a fair share of ups and downs. The communities are really nice and welcoming with many families and children. There are several amenities and recreational centers nearby. I enjoy talking long walks in the evenings with my dog, especially during the summer. However at the same time, I feel like there are increasing crime rates of petty thefts and break-ins. Not to mention the flooding that ensues after a day or two's worth of rain. It would be great to see more enforced security.
