Troy is a nice small country town. Good school, excellent police department, great community park! Would be great if there is a grocery store though.
There is not a lot in Troy. We don't even have a grocery store, but we have many gas stations. The schools are good here and the area is very safe. It is not incredible expensive to live here, so it is a good place to start a family.
I enjoy Troy because it is a very small, rural town where you know a lot of people, but you do not know everybody's business. Almost everybody is kind and there are very little issues. The police are super kind and always there when you need them. I love growing up in Troy because my neighbors are super kind and my family and I can always trust them when we are away.
I have lived in Troy since I was in second grade (I am now about to graduate high school). It is a great place to live and raise a family. It is very safe.
Troy is a great place to grow up if you are looking for a small town life within close proximity to a large city. The town has a great school system and athletics but I often find myself driving elsewhere for shopping or things to do. Growing up here, I appreciated the low crime and smaller populations but I have since moved to a larger city seeking something more than the small town life.
I like the small town feel of Troy. I think the community is very close knit and there's a great sense of 'home' here. I like all the opportunities the town gives its residents. However, I feel sometimes online people can complain a little too much about where they live.
Troy is a great family oriented community, only about 20 minutes from Scott Air Force Base, and St Louis, MO, with many dining, outdoor activities for family's and kids. The school system is one of the best I've ever seen, and being in the military, and moving around to several different locations there is no doubt about it being the best. The crime rate is very low and with the town being family oriented, everyone looks out for everyone. If you have children, and want to get them involved in sports, Troy is the place to be. They have year-round offerings of all types of sports within the city.
My family hasn't lived in this area that long but so far we've enjoyed the convenience of the accessibility to the interstate as well as other areas. We don't have to live in the city to enjoy shopping, restaurants, the arts, etc.
Troy is a good town. I have lived here for two years now and it is very pleasant. I love the tri-town park. I live about a block away from the park, so I get to walk in it all the time. There is also alot of things for families to do in Troy. The public school system is very good and has lots of opportunities.
Its a decent small town, but not alot to do in this town. We have plenty of gas station to suply your needs though.
The only issue that I have currently is more in the lines of traffic safety. A lot of vehicles speeding within our subdivision, cell phone usage while driving, and we have a pretty dangerous intersection that needs a traffic light but city council can't seem to get past themselves and pass the proposal.
It's small town that doesn't want to change too much. It would be nice to see a couple more nice, sit down restaurants however they seem to want to keep those out of developing area of town. It does have easy access to St Louis which is nice. For my particular choice I would like to live a little farther into the country with neighbors a little farther apart than what we currently have in our subdivision.
The police are very visible. They visit our schools and perform drug awareness education for students. They are quick to respond to calls and really are an asset to our town.
It's just a small town w/ a lot of gas stations. The school is OK, not as good as Edwardsville, Triad's in a lot of debt, I think. A lot of programs have been cut? The town itself is OK. I live near the park which is nice. I don't have the experience to compare this town to others in the country as far as quality of life, but if I had the money and the means I would probably move if for any reason then for a change in scenery.
Not much crime but their is occassionally. no murders
People live here for almost their entire lives. few leave
