Wentzville Reviews

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.
Review Wentzville
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.
I have a positive experience for Wentzville,Missouri and I do not regret moving here. The people are very kind, there are plenty of restaurants and shops, I loved the high school I attended and the community college is only twenty minutes away. The weather is not the best in Missouri because it is very humid and the roads are sometimes dangerous in the winter. I ranked the area okay because I came from Oahu, Hawaii and it is very hard to compare this state to the amazing beach that I grew up next too. In the future I need to see the roads improving because in the last few years traffic has caused me issues and I have to leave much earlier than I did in previous years.
