Lake St. Louis Reviews

10 reviews
All Categories
I have lived in the Lake Saint Louis area for 8+ years and have found it a great place to live. I believe the school district to be one of the best. Neighborhoods are well maintained, have never even heard of any crime to speak of, and the people are friendly. There have always been job opportunities in the area and corporations are on the rise in the area. It is on the edge of where the city meets the country, so very accessible to weekend jaunts for canoeing, camping, hiking, and bike riding. I would recommend this area as a good overall place to live because of the many different price ranges for housing to meet a wide variety of incomes.
