The neighborhood I have grown up in has been wonderful. It has been almost 8 years since my family and I have lived here in our duplex and we have a wonderful community. Very close commute to entertainment and business'. Education wise, schools are near by and not too far from where we stay. Little to no crime rates and no interruptions nor distractions.

I enjoy how close Raymore is to being able to go to anything you may want to do. There are so many new buildings and shops, places to go hiking close by, and it is a nice area to raise children and animals. I love being able to feel safe in my community. There are so many new jobs opening up with all of the newness being added to the neighborhood and all of them well paid. I like where I live and raising my son in a place that has so much to do. It really can be a magical place, where you are literally ten to fifteen minutes away from almost anything you may want to do. It is amazing!
Raymore has all the benefits of living in a large city, while still having that small town vibe. There is a lot of things to do in and around Raymore. It is only 15 minutes from Lee's Summit and 30 minutes from Kansas City. Every drive to towns around Raymore is easy. It has a friendly environment that makes you feel at home right away. The schools that I have gone to have all been supportive and helped develop me into the student I am today. The public education given is top tier compared to others around.
