I love living in Fenton. Convenience is a cornerstone for myself and my family. Fenton has great business and multiple opportunities for fun and shopping! I have never had a problem here. I used to live in a very small town but there has been little shock factor. Fenton is absolutely beautiful and I get plenty of space from my neighbors.

I have lived in Fenton, Missouri for about 15 years now. Not once have I ever felt unsafe, or threatened in my town. Fenton has a small town feel but is conveniently close to everything one might need. Gravois Bluffs is about 5-8 minutes away, where I can indulge in my small shopping addiction. Many parks are a short walk or drive away. Riverside Golf Course is right around the corner, along with a handful of tasty restaurants, guaranteed to suit any craving one might have.
Fenton is a great place to live. There is low crime and it's near the city. Fenton has many stores, restaurants, and exciting places. Red Robins, IHOP, Olive Garden, and Buffalo Wild Wings are some staple sit down restaurants. Fast food restaurants include Taco Bell, McDonald's, Culvers, and Kentucky Fried Chicken. There's also many family friendly places like Swing Around Fun Town, Sky Zone, and Epic 6. Not to mention, there's a movie theater and gym.
