If you’re moving to St.Louis you’re in for a beautiful historic city. For me this city gives you a taste of everything. Good food, plenty of places to hang out like Forest Park or Downtown. All the museums and even the zoo are free to visit. If you’re moving there I suggest you do make yourself aware of the crime rate in the area you are looking to visit or relocate. Safety is always important in a busy city like this. Make sure to try the authentic St.Louis style pizza, ribs and gooey butter cakes!

Saint Louis does not have a broad public transportation system. Therefore, be mindful if you do not have a driver’s license, a vehicle, or if you are intimidated by walking on nearly non-existent sidewalks. My city is also infamously rated as a top city for violent crime, and there are shootings regularly.

Move to a place that is west or southwest of the main city because this is where the good public schools reside and where crime is minimal. The places north of Saint Louis is where most of the crime takes place, excluding the areas of Ladue and Clayton.
