Clayton Reviews

3 reviews
Clayton has one of the best school districts in the nation. Clayton also boasts multiple hotels, many excellent restaurants, and a couple nice parks.
Review Clayton
The best place to raise children. There is a value of diversity and education in this community. While we are considered a "suburb," of St. Louis, there is an urban feel. Fabulous place.
Clayton is very close to most locations within Saint Louis. You are probably 15 minutes from the airport, downtown Saint Louis, South City, or Chesterfield
