Boonville or Mexico,,, hum. I'm going to say Boonville specifically due to schools and drugs. My opinon though, others may have other facts. I have adult friends who were raised in Mexico who have moved to Columbia to raise there families. In part due to employment and also due to the high school drug problem. Which yes, seems to be everywhere. But, they have made that choice. So why boonville? Those same friends would choose to send their kids to school in Boonville. Although Boonville has the Isle of Capri Casino, I have heard nothing but positive comments about what is has brought into the community. I believe that the revenues are also used to support the schools. Could be wrong about that though. Affordable housing is available in both locations and both would offer similar shopping via locally owned stores and Super Walmart.
Boonville is located closer to Columbia. Mexico has a hospital, I don't think Boonville does anymore. Good luck with your choice!

It has been a while since I visited Booneville. It has been a nice community in the past. Mexico is a great town. I would suggest visiting both and getting first-hand experience. Let your gut tell you.
Yea, there are drugs in both community's but I couldn't say it is worse in one or the other. Mexico seems to be a "safer" town. Don't know exactly what that means but that has been my "gut" feeling.
good luck!

So, Boonville has better drugs than Mexico?

Must be because of the river. Maybe it's the Interstate access.
