Raytown Missouri = The Best Suburb

While most people my age are starting to raise families and move out to more homogeneous suburbs like Lee's Summit, Blue Springs, or Heaven forbid, JOHNSON COUNTY, I am content to remain in Raytown. The majority of my friends live in Kansas City, and while moving downtown with all it's exciting development would seem reasonable, I'd rather stay here. Going downtown should be something to dress up for and I am going to keep it that way. I live in a community where my neighbors are the business owners and where the kids play catch from one yard to the other. My community isn't small and it has it fair share of problems, but it's home.As in all communities there are always those clamoring to escape, but I urge them to look around and take notice of how good this place is. Look at what it can be, and look at what it has been. I've left many times to look for that something better, only to return again. Raytown has repeatedly offered me its outstretched arms and has embraced me with a mother's enduring love. I finally know what people are talking about when they say it's good to be home
