Moving Destination: Moving to Missouri


Missouri is one of the few states that can truly say it has something for everyone. Whether you’re an outdoor adventurer, a foodie, a sports fanatic, an executive on the go or a retiree, Missouri is the place for you.

Experiencing all four seasons to their fullest, Missouri is an outdoor adventurer’s paradise. From downhill skiing in the winter to water skiing on The Lake of the Ozarks in the summer, to camping, hiking and fishing and everything in-between, Missouri offers something for everyone.

With large cities like St. Louis, Kansas City and Springfield, there’s always something going on. Kanas City is famous for jazz and world class barbecue, so if you like these things, you’ll never want to leave. With more barbecue restaurants per capita than any other city in the United States, and jazz clubs sprinkled all throughout the city dating back to the days of prohibition, you’re sure to be in heaven. St. Louis, located on the Mississippi River and known for blues music and the iconic Gateway Arch, is a must for any history lover. Springfield is the third largest city in the state and is home to Missouri State University and some of the state’s largest employers such as St. John’s Hospital.

Missouri isn’t all big cities. If suburbia is more you style, or if a farm or a ranch in rural parts of the state interests you, there’s plenty of that too. The cost of living in Missouri is below the national average, especially when it comes to housing costs. In 2016, Missouri was ranked 11 out of 50 for affordable costs of living and 14 out of 50 for quality of public education according to a CNBC study. Missouri boasts some of the highest quality educational institutions in the country, from kindergarten to college and their libraries and museums are unparalleled.

If you’re a sports fan, Missouri is sure to have at least one team you’ll love to root for. With two major league baseball teams, the St. Louis Cardinals, one of the most successful franchises in baseball history, and the Kansas City Royals playing in the American League. Missouri also boasts the NFL team Kansas City Chiefs, competing in the AFC and currently being led by two time pro bowl quarterback, Alex Smith. Missouri also has a professional soccer team, the Sporting Kansas City Soccer Club as well as the NHL team, the St. Louis Blues. Not to mention twelve minor league sports teams.

If your move to Missouri is for business, a change of pace, for higher education or retirement, Missouri definitely has something for everyone.
