We are looking to relocate to the area and after reading the other thread about Aurora I am a little apprehensive about reaching out, but here goes.:) I will be working in Aurora and we want a SMALL town not far from other jobs for my husband. Through browsing Google we have found Mt. Vernon and I think it may be ideal for what we are looking. Can anyone tell me about your area? I am not interested in insults or trash talking, just your honest experiences and opinions would be great. We do have teenagers and pets. Thank you all in advance for reading my thread and maybe we will be neighbors soon.:)

We just moved to Mt Vernon approximately 6 months ago. It's quaint and pretty quiet...not much of anything to do really. They did just open a nice new gym, a community center, and then a community college is moving in as well.

Mt Vernon seems to be big into their sports, as we can usually hear the games from across town. Seems to be ok so far, just wish there was more to do.

Not a bad drive to Springfield everyday.

Thanks for the information. Do you have kids? If so, were they accepted well? How is the rental market?

Sorry, no kids. I don't know about the rental market, but there are tons of houses for sale.

We moved to Aurora in MArch and have found it to be a friendly, pleasant place to live. We will be retiring in about 5 years +-. Also our sons, although didn't go to school here have been well accepted when visiting from college. We have found a great church and enjoy all the people there. As far as location, it's only 30 minutes from Springfield, shopping, lots going on. Aurora is a good community who seem to care about their kids and families. Anyway, hope this helps. We love it here.
