the weather can change at a moment’s notice. They should also know that there is a lot of rich history here. Outdoor activities are plentiful and there are several things to do inside as well. We are healing from a major tornado from nine years ago. The scars from that day still affect us.

Joplin Missouri, known for it superb diners. As with it’s friendly residents that are very welcoming to new inhabitants. Although being in the tornado alley, the weather quite nice. Joplin is a pleasant place to move and grow a family due the culture and environment.

They would need to know there is not much stuff to do besides go to the mall. People here can be really cool but sometimes shady. Things get boring really fast if you cannot think outside the box. Overall I think it is a decent place.
