Main Street, Joplin, MO

Joplin comes in tenth on a list of the top twelve towns that have the best main streets in Missouri on the website onlyinyourstate.com.


Pretty good for a small town that does not have a river front.  Joplin’s has made Main Street a feast for the senses. From the well kept flowers in the summer months to the beautiful Christmas lights right now, Joplin’s pride shows.  Several beautiful murals, great places to shop and  excellent cuisine make Main Street Joplin a destination must.

Make sure to come and visit.  And if you decide to buy property while you are here, give me a call. 417-825-1042.
