I have spent the majority of my life being a part of the Maplewood community as a student. The schools in Maplewood are fantastically staffed and have a special interest on not just the needs of the individual, but the cultivation of healthy, lasting relationships. In recent years, Maplewood has gained many exciting restaurants and businesses, each special in their own way. Now, downtown Maplewood is bustling with people nearly every day. Maplewood is small, much smaller than other towns, but it is full of life, culture, and opportunity. I feel very fortunate to have grown up in such an enlightening town.

Fantastic location in St. Louis; Very central to all parts. Easy access to both 44 and 64/40 and even 170. The maplewood strip contains many restaurants & bars, 2 breweries, a hardware store, a grocery store, book store, leather store, and many other shopping stores. Very close to Forest Park, the Galleria Mall, Washington University of St. Louis, Barnes Jewish Hospital, The Loop, the Grove, on and on; a wonderful location.
The thing I like most about Maplewood is Downtown Maplewood. It is an area filled with privately owned stores and restaurants. It is a great hang out place with many things to do! I also love the variety of stores like CVS and the Shop n Save (now becoming Schnucks) so that all my last minute needs are within minutes of my house. I like how open Maplewood is to public opinions and ideas of ways to improve the county. It's a great community feeling!
