Fenton is a great area for shopping. Between the Gravois Bluffs shopping and Olde Towne Fenton plaza, there are an array of restaurants, big box deparment stores, local stores, and gas stations. This is a great destination if you are looking for an evening of shopping.
Fenton is also named, "The City of Parks" and for this is does not disappoint. There are an array of parks within a 20 minute radius such as Mini Ha Ha, George Winter Park, Fenton City Park, and Lone Elk park. These are great destinations for sports, animal sightings, and walking your dog. The neighborhoods and schools are recommended for families as well.
Review Fenton
I have lived in Fenton, Missouri my whole life and have experienced it throughout its development. When I was younger, Fenton was in the process of becoming a developed community. Gravois Bluffs wasn't a thing,and the only supermarket to go to was Shop n' Save or other smaller local stores. Within a few years, Gravois Bluffs developed into a huge shopping center with a bunch of new stores and restauraunts. Now Fenton is very developed and there is no need to go to any other town to do your main shopping, etc. There are different parts of Fenton, as some parts are mostly shops/restauraunts, or just a lot of homes, and then there are other parts with many industrial buildings and businesses. I like the Fenton area and am glad to have grown up in this small suburban town.
I have lived in Fenton my entire life and LOVE it! From parks and entertainment to shopping and restaurants, there are plenty of things to keep you busy in Fenton, MO.
