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 woodframed farmhouses to traditional ranch and two-story colonials.
