Crestwood is home a very respectable Lindbergh School District. The school has one of the best educations in the state. This county is filled with hardworking, kind people. Many love coaching their kids soccer teams, and taking strolls through many of the nearby parks with their families. It is overall a safe neighborhood, with many locally owned businesses and chains alike.

Crestwood is quiet, friendly, and very convieniently placed in St. Louis. You can access every major highway within minutes, and can walk to a lot of businesses nearby with no issues. I also enjoy how close the community is and how they work together to make their neighborhoods great.
Crestwood is a great community to raise a family in. The nights are very quite with not a lot of noise being made. People are able to get to places very easily with local shops all around. Downtown Saint Louis is only 20 minutes away as well as the St. Louis international airport. Crestwood is a great central location with great benefits.
