Shrewsbury Reviews

Shrewsbury is a good central location in Saint Louis. You can easily get to downtown or even more west in Saint Louis. It is within 20 minutes of everything you could imagine in Saint Louis. I always feel safe walking around, even at night. As a younger adult it is a great central location to bars all over the Saint Louis area. I strongly suggest living in this area if you are looking for a new place to call home.

The general atmosphere is relatively positive. The people who live in the area are open and supportive, there just is not much to do in the middle of Missouri.
