O'Fallon has always been a very safe and secure city, which makes it a desirable area to live in. It lacks personality or a sense of community, however, as it is incredibly sub-urbanized. No matter where in O'Fallon you live, almost no destination can be reached without a car, leading nearly constant heavy traffic throughout the city, and minimal societal intermingling, which makes it very difficult to feel connected to other residents. There are very few public attractions and parks, and the landscape is rather dull across town. It does, however, have relatively high quality public education aside from a couple ridiculously under-resourced and neglected schools (such as Dardenne Elementary), and it attracts quite a few good businesses very regularly.

Awesome town...great people! Safe, Clean, and Fun! We have one of the top rated school districts in the state. We have our own Hometown Minor League Baseball team, the Rascals. We are located only 30 minutes from Downtown St. Louis, known as the best free town for family activities, #1 ranked zoo, museums, outdoor theatres, one hour to SIx Flags adventure Park, and parks galore! O'fallon is small town living with in reach of the City life too!
It is very family friendly. If you are just starting a family it is a quiet environment with many activities and schools. For someone in their 20's it is quite dry. More races are moving into the area which is always nice to see but there are not many opportunities as far as colleges, meeting other singles or job opportunities. Liked it when I was in middle school and started to dislike the boring-ness of the quiet midwestern scene as I got older. Major attractions are kind of far (20-30min) as well as any diversity in food stores and restaurants. Overall nice experience if you are a young family or older retirement age.
