Ladue is a beautiful place to live. It seems like a forest in the middle of St. Louis. I often have deer and owls lounging in my backyard— even though I’m 5 minutes from Clayton and 15 minutes from downtown. Ladue High School is (in my biased opinion) the best public school in St. Louis. The area is safe, quiet at night, and surrounded by many things to do (such as Forest Park, downtown Saint Louis, midtown, WASHU campus, downtown Clayton, and much more) I moved to Ladue from another suburb in Saint Louis, and I could not be more happy with where I live!

Chill, relaxed suburb. Always felt safe. Property values are very expensive, but there is an excellent school system and many restaurants and grocery stores to live off of
Has cute shopping district and is very close to Clayton Mo, another suburb but it has a really cute small downtown area. Beautiful neighborhoods, great public and private schools.
