We get around
In a good way.
Joplin has a big city vibe with some small-town perks, like shorter commute times. Our typical in-town commute is about 17 minutes — ten minutes shorter than the national average. We’re also at the intersection of Interstates 44 and 49 in case you’ve got a longer drive to work or if you have road trip plans.
We’re under 30 minutes away from several other growing communities, like Webb City, Carl Junction, Neosho, and Carthage, meaning you have plenty of choices when it comes to living and working in our area.
