I love the people around my neighborhood! It is perfect for my active lifestyle because of all of the sidewalks around. It is very safe for walking or running with my dog outside. The neighborhoods are clean with no visible trash. I love it!

Brentwood is a safe and relatively quiet suburb of St. Louis. It is located only a short 10 minute drive from downtown St. Louis City and no more than 20 minute drive from nearly every other surrounding county. There are multiple annual events and parades that bring neighbors together to celebrate.
You will often find generations of families living in Brentwood. Most of the town is involved in community service or the local schools. Lots of small businesses, yet also thriving shopping centers with big box stores to attract residents from other communities.
