I love the local friendly people around this area. I've been living in this town for 13 years now and still love it. There are great local restaurants, places to shop, activities to do with family and friends, and there is an amazing school district!
Review Glen Carbon
Glen Carbon is a wonderful place to live. Very nice and safe. Lots of different people from all over the world. Ten minutes from SIUE and lots of shopping but close to country. I love it here.
It's a very community related place to live, many families have pets and raise their families here. Most people move here fall in love with the place and never leave.
