It is a very quiet calm neighborhood and the people are always friendly! Pevely is just outside of a few major towns, Arnold, Herculaneum and Festus and right off highway I55. Anything you can't get there you can get from neighboring towns.

I like Pevely because it is a small city, you know everyone and a safe place to live. I have been living here since February 21st of 2014 and so far, no one has been bothering me here. Elementary school is only a few miles from where my house is, churches are everywhere too. There is a Catholic church and Baptist church nearby.
It's a small town with everything you need in it or not too far away. Good school systems and many job opportunities around. If you don't like big cities like me, it's perfect
