ST. LOUIS, MISSOURI

St. Louis is a historic metro area of 2.8 million with a family-friendly
reputation and tight-knit communities. St. Louisans are loyal to their
hometown. Many return permanently after going away to school or
living elsewhere.
The area’s low cost of living and central U.S. location are draws for
many, including companies looking to relocate. St. Louis businesses
run the gamut from tech startups to global financial investment
companies to aircraft manufacturers. On a smaller scale, a homegrown
iconic favorite is the Blueberry Hill restaurant and bar in the Loop, where
the father of rock ‘n’ roll himself, Chuck Berry, used to wow the crowds
every month with his famous duck walk.
The charm of St. Louis’ many unique neighborhoods may be a
pleasant surprise to newcomers. Homes range in style from three-story
Victorians to wood- framed farmhouses to traditional ranch and twostory colonials.
