I've lived in Tower Grove South for most of my life (about 17 years) and I love the atmosphere. My neighbors are all very friendly and we all know each other. The location is great. There's plenty of small businesses around, and Tower Grove Park is our neighbor. I've always been able to walk somewhere nearby to eat out, buy groceries, find a new book, get some coffee, and get new clothes!

Lived here for a year ready to move on. This neighborhood is on the road to gentrification and one of the hippest neighborhoods in st louis. There are a mix of people that live here that make it interesting and was built in a time that encouraged walking to get around. The park is nice and we've had some nice times there. Overall though crime is commonplace, gunshots can be heard at night and your car will get burgled. This is also an extremely liberal neighborhood if you're not an outspoken cynic you may not enjoy it. Going out to bars, restaurants or coffee shops can feel as though you're not in the misfits club and don't belong. We never bonded with this place and have felt on edge here with the issues st louis carries. I recommend this neighborhood for young hipsters from other midwestern cities/towns and lgbt ppl, this is what you've been looking for.
Lots of educational school choices.
Kid friendly events within walking distance or less than 10 minute drive are often free.
Sellers housing market.
Lemonade stands, farmers markets, food trucks, lots of restaurants, free yoga, music, play grounds and festivals at a large park in walking distance.
