I am from Illinois, and currently live in SW Idaho. I wish to get back to the scenery more typical of living in the Midwest (trees, hills, rivers forested on both sides, etc). Missouri will be the first Midwest state I will come to as I head East on I-70, and quite frankly judging by its geography alone, I can't see why I should go any further. (yes I know Kansas comes first, but I am not interested in a High Plains state). I grabbed a random "street view" on Google Maps of an area in Missouri and the scenery was everything I hope for. This random shot turned out to be a rural area outside of Excelsior Springs. I am a man aged 60s with a couple of cats. I plan to day-trade for a living, and therefore I don't worry too much about employment. But even if I did find employment, I don't need to live in a high-powered city. Perhaps if I can find a small city that has an industrial base, and one with scenic countryside this would be all I would need. Can you give me some ideas? Basically my only need is a Walmart near-by (within 5 miles). Thank you.


ps... I do want to live in a desirable, or semi-desirable town. I wouldn't want to live somewhere where everyone looks depressed hahaha. Yet I don't' want to live in an expensive place. I doubt there are many towns in Missouri that would be deemed expensive, however.
OP, are you sure you're ready to give up western weather/aridity for a humid climate again? Sometimes being away a bit, a sense of nostalgia can seep in, but then returning can wake one up and make one remember how miserable such a place is with the humid air.

Also, there are very few places in the Midwest and Missouri that are vibrant and with a sense of growth that you will find across the west.

I'd think long and hard on this one.

The heat and humidity are huge negatives of living in lower latitude areas of the US east of the Rockies. The only nicer summer weather is found north of latitudes 44-45 degrees north east of the Mississippi River in my opinion.
