Red Bridge has been improving gradually over the past 5 or 6 years. We've had a total remodel of the Red Bridge center, yet there are multiple unused spaces. Once more businesses are added, the area will be much more lively. There are a lot of great people, mainly families in the area.

The only time I've noticed an issue is on trash day. People tend to come to the neighborhood looking for unwanted things. Once, I left my car unlocked and someone went through my car. Fortunately I keep nothing of value in my car but it was a bit shocking.
Missouri weather can go from cold in the morning, to warm in the afternoon, to raining, and then to snowing. It is unpredictable. However, other than just being prepared it is pretty great. It is slighly humid but not bad. It does get hot in the late summer early fall. Also sometimes winter is generally mild but when it is not it is intense.
