The “Show Me State”, also known as Missouri is famous for the ice cream cone. This invention came about when an ice cream vendor ran out of cups for his ice cream and asked a waffle vendor to roll waffles into the shape of a cone to hold the ice cream.
It is also famous for the most destructive tornado to date, which lasted for 3 hours and was 980 feet wide, this occurred in 1925.
The average cost of living in MO is almost 9.5% lower than the national average; expect things to be a little less expensive than they are in states such as New York. This means that the cost of housing, food and other necessities are going to be a little less expensive.
The average annual salary in the state is about $6,000 less than the national average, which makes it around $40,000 a year. An audio engineer in the state should have no issues though as the average annual salary for that field is around $67,000.

Schooling in Missouri is high quality and those seeking an education in audio engineering should have no trouble finding a school close to home, or at least within a decent commutable distance from home. (vs long distance learning)
This can be a deciding factor for those who are looking to further their educational degree in the field as well, as most who already have a degree are already working in their field.
In addition to a low cost of living and a higher average annual salary, Missouri has plenty to offer to those who are looking to relocate. Especially because the cost of basic necessities, utilities, land and other things should be cheaper.
