Ellisville is such a charming place with a small town feel. All our neighbors were so welcoming when we moved here. Everything is in close walking distance and our family loves riding our bikes on the various trails that run throughout Ellisville. Sometimes we walk through the trails to grab a bite to eat at Dewey's pizza then stop in at the library. Love it!
Review Ellisville
I moved to Ellisville about 3 years ago, and I had previously never lived in the St. Louis area. My family has been very pleased with the area. People are so friendly and there is a real sense of community here. Neighbors stop to say hello when you are walking down the street, and will literally do ANYTHING to lend a helping hand. The schools are top notch, and housing is affordable. There is always something to do in the area.
One of the greatest communities I have ever lived in. Safe city, Tree City USA, fabulous walking/running trails, snow removal is the best, free leaf and limb pick-up, easy highway access, terrific shopping and dining.
