I am so glad I live in the Geist area! It is very clean and safe. There are many fun activities for adults and children to do, including the Geist reservoir!

Okay so I don't technically live near Geist, but I do live in the metro area and I go to Geist pretty often. The area is SUPER nice and the house is beautiful here. The houses are pretty expensive though. The area is nice. This area would be great if you didn't want to live in a suburb because it would be too far from the city, but still wanted to live outside the city. There are plenty of places like that around the city for a much cheaper price though.
I love Geist because it is such a tight knit community. Also, everything you need is in the area so you never need to travel far. The schools are excellent and have rivalries that get everybody out and to all of the sporting events.
