My hubby & I will be moving to Junction City in Sept. Can someone please tell me a good part of town to live in and the areas to stay away from. We are looking to rent. Thanks

Junction City doesn't really have any really bad areas. As I recall the area just to the
north of Walmart was maybe not quite as good, but I have been gone from there for
awhile now. Overall I thought the people were pretty decent there and not a huge
amount of crime. A lot of people live in Manhattan who work around there, but rents
are higher. Avoid the apartments in Ogden, but you will see that for yourself if you go

There are entirely new neighborhoods west of Old HWY 77 off of exit 295.
Lots of revitalization in the area east of the High School also.
Lots of new duplexes outside both gates from Fort Riley that lead into Junction City.

as mentioned by rlfuller, the areas across 77 are newer, but be careful, these houses were put up very quickly and are starting to have issues. Additionally there are a lot of special taxes associated with them. For established areas, the Green Hills area off of Ash st or the neighborhoods up by the hospital are very good areas. The dividing lines in town are 6th st going E/W (I think, I always get those messed up) and Washington going N/S. Anything after 6th (going up in numbers) tends to be the slightly lower areas, but not bad. The only area that has had issues is around 14th and Calhoun and such. You can drive through these areas though and see for yourself. Many of the larger, older homes are in the lower number and tree named streets. Many of the older smaller homes are in the higher numbered streets after 6th. I hope this explains itself ok. Like another writer said, there are no really bad areas of town. It depends on what you want.
