Affton Reviews

27 reviews
All Categories
Affton is a small suburb right outside the city boundary of St. Louis. It is a wonderful place to live because it resembles a little town. It contains all the shops and restaurants that one would need but it also contains home of all sizes and materials. Everyone in Affton seem to always get along very well despite the many cultural diversities. Affton is a place where you can always run into someone you know either from a local store, church or getting to know them by walking on Grant's Trail. Affton is not fancy or known for having lots of money but it simple and is a place to call home because simply it is a place of respect and kindness to all people. This is a special place for not only myself and family but for many other families that I call my neighbor.
Affton is in a good location for getting to just about anything within 20 minutes. There are plenty of restaurants, shopping, groceries, etc within a reasonable distance. I feel safe in my neighborhood, though there are some areas of Affton that appear more run down. It is good for families.
Nice small community with close ties to various churches, scouts and schools. Most people know their neighbors and enjoy the quiet of a small town neighborhood with the convenience of a big city close by.
