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.

Great place to live in! There are so many opportunities for you to learn and flourish, and there are great schools in the area! Some high schools even have academies that your child can apply to if they're interested in a certain field, and it's not binding, although I'm sure they'll want to stay. The weather varies, but is usually nice and beautiful. There are so many new businesses you can support and they sell really nice stuff. All around great people, too.
