Overall, O'Fallon is a great town. It is an especially great place for families! I attended public high school here and had a good experience. I find its distance from St. Louis to be perfect. The one area I would greatly revamp is the O'Fallon downtown area. It could definitely be updated and upgraded.

O'Fallon is a great place to grow up in. It has great schools, both elementary and high school. It has great restaurants, from local hole-in-the-walls to your everyday restaurant chain. O'Fallon also has great attractions. It has two incredible parks and a couple of fun places to hang out on a Friday or Saturday night, like the brand new movie theatre for example. The people are very friendly and there is a great community atmosphere.
Though this town is very nice and welcoming, I do find that I would rather live else where. I guess part of the reason I do not care for living here is mostly because I miss the coast. I am a big beach lover and the closest thing we have to the ocean is the Mississippi river, which is definitely not even close to being the same. Another thing I do not like is the debt this state is in. Because of this growing debt we are losing residences by the day. The prices for homes and even gas is very high causing people to have to pay more then usual for the necessities. Though Illinois is suffering, I believe that Ofallon is doing a good job of trying to help people and keep opportunity open to every one, even those struggling to get by, which is why I believe my overall experience with O Fallon has been a good one.
