  • Jefferson City is a quiet, family-friendly oriented place to visit and live. It has low crime and beautiful, well-kept gardens throughout the city. Enjoy the Capital on a self-esteem guided tour, the Governor's Mansion, the Carnahan and Botanical gardens, and much more! Rent is very affordable, business is steady. I really enjoy living here.
