I love living in O'Fallon in Illinois! Beside the fact that every few feet there is a roundabout right smack in the middle of the road! Not to mention the newest addition currently being constructed right outside of my neighborhood. The schools here are good though. If you are a freshman living in O'Fallon, then you have it best.The freshman have an entire campus to themselves. I loved the teachers and the lunch menu choices are to die for.

Excellent public school system, but living here is on the more costly side (especially in terms of property taxes as much of the property taxes go towards the schools. This explains why the school system is so good.). Everything feels like it closes after 9:00 P.M. in O'Fallon so there is no nightlife unless your definition of nightlife is going to to a bar. Beautiful houses but can be very expensive. O'Fallon is very close to Scott AFB and St. Louis so commute time is very manageable. As for job opportunities, there are two new hospitals which has increased the job market here. O'Fallon is extremely safe too, with a high quality police and fire department. Overall, O'Fallon is a quiet town that is a great place to raise a family and is centrally located to commute to many workplaces.
One of the best things about O'Fallon is the schools! I love the small town feel with the benefits of a big city being just a short drive away. However, the taxes are very high and I'd love to see those lowered.
