St. Louis is made up of an eclectic mix of neighborhoods that blend together into a larger community. They differ in style but share a midwestern friendliness that makes living here feel like home. Speaking of homes, St. Louis is sprinkled with historical homes and architectural gems, many of which are 100+ years old. From North City to Kirkwood to Belleville, it’s common to find something truly unique. What’s also unique is that in St. Louis, these types of living spaces are still affordable. Accessibility is also a plus. You can walk from one neighborhood to the next, live close to where you work, take the MetroLink or make a short drive to get just about anywhere in town.

An Urban Core That Offers More

The place St. Louisans plant their roots usually depends on their lifestyle. For those who want to be closer to the action and catch a Cardinals and Blues game (or St. Louis CITY SC in 2023), head Downtown. Grab a drink off Washington, The Grove or in Soulard. If you’re a foodie, you’ll love the Italian food on The Hill or all the international choices on South Grand.

For those who love green spaces, check out the Central West End, Fairgrounds, Lafayette Square, and Tower Grove neighborhoods – all are within walking distance of major parks.

If Suburbia Is More Your Scene …

If you don’t mind a short drive, St. Louis’ suburban neighborhoods offer family-friendly amenities from sports to shopping. Head west to Chesterfield or St. Peters, south to Arnold or east to Edwardsville or Belleville. Explore the bluffs of the mighty Mississippi from Alton’s Riverfront Park. Shop the cobblestone streets of historic St. Charles, or experience the outdoors in Wildwood, filled with parks, trails, and plenty of green space. You can live the resort lifestyle on Lake St. Louis, with boating, golf, and more, or enjoy a bottle of vino in Augusta, the heart of Missouri’s wine country, with beautiful wineries overlooking the Missouri River.
