I enjoy living in Creve Coeur. We are in a great neighborhood with great neighbors. Creve Coeur Lake is not far, and is such a great place to walk and be outdoors. Another great thing about the area is the affordability. For being such a great area, you can get a lot of house for your money. The two things I dislike about the area are how long it takes to get to the highway and also the amount of chain restaurants and stores here. I wish their were more local, small businesses around here but most of those are closer to the city.

I have lived in Creve Coeur for about 16 years and what I love about this place is that everything is in a drivable distance and even St. Louis city is only a ~20-minute drive away. I would say that this is a pretty safe area within St. Louis and that there is a lot of diversity in Creve Coeur and even the schools nearby. However, certain locations within Creve Coeur are a bit pricy.
I love the lake and vibe of the area. It's relaxed but there are always things to do. I go to school and work here and I love it. There are places to eat, hang out, clothing stores, haircut places. Literally, everything is here, come out and see!
