Wonderful historic area near Budweiser Brewery
Architecture is amazing. Dining is top notch and the variety can't be beat. I'm a Chicago native and this feels like a tiny slice of big city living, but homey. Everyone is super friendly ready to help their neighbor immediately. Not a lot of kids. Lots of dogs and cats and fur-parents of all ages. This is an area where people go for walks or jogging along cobblestone alleyways, and some brick sidewalks. The homes built in 1860's & 70's with pride of ownership.all around. Beautiful parks and live music on summer nights. Crime is near-by, so do lock your doors, keep your car doors locked or you'll find it was rifled through in the morning. Not so much dangerous, as annoying. Best spot in St Louis for travel.as all major expressways are right here. Mississippi is right here. We even have ghosts. Look up Lemp Mansion!!

Great walkability, vibrant community with historic homes, restaurants, and shops. Close to all the major St. Louis attractions!
Moved here last summer from another south city neighborhood. Favorite place I’ve lived so far. Great community vibe, beautiful architecture and convenient location. Benton Park has come a long way in the past 10 years and I’ve had no issues with safety.
