I am a current resident of Wentzville and love the area. Having grown up in a smaller town, Wentzville offers a lot of possibilities from a challenging school curriculum to multiple restaurants to eat out at. Wentzville is expanding as well, which is great for the job market. Overall, Wentzville has a low crime rate and provides a safe environment for minors and adults alike. The activities to do in Wentzville vary from movie watching at the new theater, coffee shops, flea markets, parks, swimming pools, shopping, gyms, restaurants, etc. What is not offered in Wentzville directly is normally offered nearby with a short highway ride to the surrounding cities. From my experience, I love living in Wentzville.

Community is great. The school districts are amazing, and there is so many different things to do. They just recently added a movie theatre and some new restaurants, which has given a more diversified selection of food options. Something that should be changed is the addition of a bowling alley.
I love living in Wentzville, MO. I am the Children's Pastor at Element Church and I love being part of big serving community. I love that people will look out to serve the needs of others rather than solely looking inward. Along with the people, there are so many things to do. Wentzville is only a short drive into the city, but people do not have to go into the city to find things to do. There are many options to satsify a young adult like me but also to one day raise a family here.
