Warrensburg residents are quite friendly and helpful. If you go out for a walk anytime of the day, you will definitely be greeted by someone. There’s always a “Good morning!”, “Howdy!”, “good afternoon” or “evening to ya!”.
The best part about this place is the farm life. You’ll see horses , deers, chickens, ducks etc. Oh and talk about the beautiful birds. Their colors are vibrant! As a citizen girl this amazes me. One thing I would change , definitely needs for diversity.

I moved to Warrensburg to attend college, at the University of Central Missouri. In my first two years, I loved the quaint small town vibe as it matched where I grew up, I enjoyed all it had to offer during the semesters. It wasn’t until I had decided to finish my last 2 years living their full time that I noticed it’s flaws. There is one main road in and out of the town and it’s a 2-lane road riddled with stop lights and street front businesses making a 2 mile trip take 40 minutes on a good day, on top of that you will never go a single day without at least seeing 5 different police patrol cars, they purposely look for trouble, and to top it all off the town is a hotbed for methheads that the city does nothing about. The police are to preoccupied writing a ticket for a license plate light to handle its real issues. I wouldn’t live their again if Iwas paid a million dollars annually
It’s a smaller town, mostly consisting of college students and townies. Pine street is basically the only place where there’s bars and nightlife. There’s not that many restaurants as well.
