I love living here schools are great I feel safe, police are always around but don't harass. I have kids so I'm always wondering about safety everyone's pretty neighborly and it's very diverse. It's very quiet at night, and everything is easy to access it's centrally located so you can get to places like st. Charles or St Louis city very easily. I love my little town and will probably be here for years to come, the schools are great the music teacher one teacher of the year just last year it's a pretty tight community and they always have some kind of events going on to keep everyone together and being positive there's plenty of libraries and School centrally located.
The people that live in Overland are incredibly kind and have created a strong, integrated community. Neighbors wave, take care of each other and form true bonds. The only down side is the lack of local businesses in the community. I believe more restaurants, coffee shops and stores could truly exemplify the suburb.
