I am in very close proximity to a great area of St. Louis, which is called "The Loop". The Loop is a really great place with many chain stores. Some of the chain stores include Ben and Jerry's, Chipotle, and Blick Art Supplies. This area also has some wonderful independently owned stores. One of my favorite small stores on The Loop is called Plowsharing Crafts. This store buys and sells fair trade crafts and handmade objects from all over the world. Most of these crafts are made from recyclable materials and help to support economies in villages. I love what this store has to offer and I love supporting its cause. I feel that this area offers shoppers a wide variety of goods and services for consumers and I can certainly get most of what I need in this area. I do think that the grocery store does not offer a lot of selection however and believe that it is expensive. Therefore, I generally go to different grocery stores for food.

St. Louis has four seasons, which is nice. The leaves change in the fall, there is a little bit of snow during the winters, and flowers in the spring. I think that I like spring the best in St. Louis because the temperature is warm, but very tolerable. It is easy to go outside during the day and enjoy the sunshine and fresh air. I also love how quickly flowers and plants bloom, which makes everything seem lively and happy during the spring. I do not like the summer. The weather is always humid and I feel that I am constantly sticking to things. I do not enjoy the humidity, bugs, and cicadas. This humidity also gives the area lots of severe thunderstorms and the possibility for tornadoes. Although tornadoes generally do not touch down in the city, there are frequently tornado warnings and drills that people need to participate in.
I like this area overall, as it is very close to Forest Park and a Metro Station. I like that I can walk my dog in a safe neighborhood or the park on a nice day. My street is quiet and there is little crime in the neighborhood overall. I also like the proximity to the Delmar Loop, which is a really fun place to visit on the weekends. I see much more restaurants coming into the area within the next ten years.
