Chesterfield is a great place to live! It has almost everything you could ask for. There are county parks, state parks, and plenty shopping with the two outlet malls being so close, so there is always something to do. There are two colleges in the Chesterfield area, and there are also many subdivisions so there is a great range in age in the area. Chesterfield is also home to some of the best schools in the St. Louis area, which means it stands out on college applications. Chesterfield is also centrally located, being less than 30 min from the downtown area and about 20 from downtown Saint Charles its such a great location. Once you check out Chesterfield, you'll understand why it's such a sought after town in St. Louis.
Review Chesterfield
Chesterfield is a safe and convenient location. Schools, shopping, hospitals and doctors are all within a few minutes drive. It is quite safe, and the community is dedicated to creating beautiful outdoor public spaces. These include an outdoor amphitheater that features free concerts every summer, lots of parks, hiking and walking trails and public art installations.
There are a lot of excellent restaurants in Chesterfield and the St. Louis area! Again, I recommend looking for non-chain Italian places on The Hill. We also have very nice grocery stores, the most notable being Dierberg's and Schnucks. Both are very nice/welcoming environments with quality products. The bar scene is really big, especially more in St. Louis. Bar & Grills are also popular. My favorite for Chesterfield is Alibi 25. The food is amazing but you might wait a bit for it, so be sure to have good friends and drinks. :) Anything you'd want to buy is in the area too. Chesterfield has 3 major shopping malls and a lot of businesses, especially in the Chesterfield valley area. Oh, and if you're looking for a delicious place to get some late night breakfast food, I really recommend Uncle Tom's. There are 2 in the general area. I love their pancakes & French toast. They're open 24/7.
