I'm not exactly a social person so my opinion on this might not be perfect, but I've found that there are plenty of options for anyone who's interested. Neighbors are often willing to pet-sit, the local police officers will watch your home for anything suspicious while you're on vacation, and there usually isn't any fear in letting kids run around the neighborhood. The neighborhood itself isn't very close, though my parents chat with neighbors sometimes. If I did want to reach out to the community, there are plenty of groups in the area I could join. I've also found that people are very friendly, everywhere from grocery stores to libraries.

There are a lot of diverse characteristics in the area. Each neighborhood tends to have its own "average", but just down the street there's another neighborhood that's entirely different. In my high school, I had no trouble finding friends among every type of person. Most people I've known aren't very racist, sexist, or homophobic, though there always seems to be at least one person like that around. The schools are very active in encouraging equality for everyone, mine had male cheerleaders, a LGBTQ+ club, and fairly repetitive education about bullying (what to do if it happens, who to go to, how to help friends, why not to bully, etc). It's not very outrageous when you look at it, but if you look for acceptance then it's hard not to find it.
We've got the arch, which has a decent amount of traffic. St. Louis tends to be a main choice for any traveling events since it's such a big city, although sometimes people choose Chicago as their middle-of-the-country location and skip over St. Louis. We've got a bunch of cool stuff to visit, like the St. Louis Science Center, the St. Louis Zoo, or the St. Louis City Museum (which is a museum and also basically a giant playground). Some local yearly events that I really like are the Japanese Festival, the International Festival, and the Renaissance Faire, though there's usually something else going on if you're looking for it.
