Kirkwood is a wonderful place to raise a family with casual restaurants and parks within walking distance. It has fairly good schools. Clayton is very walkable and has one of the best school districts in the state but can be a little pricey. You should also check out homes in the Parkway and Ladue school districts.

For good schools, scenic beauty, and safety, I would look into Eureka. It has the top rated public school district (Rockwood) in the STL area. Nice homes, small town feel. Your hubby will most likely have to drive on 44 everyday to work, but it won't be too bad.

Here I am! I have not logged on in a while! Let's see here, we are presently looking at homes (just online, we won't be there until November) in Edwardsville/Glen Carbon/Troy, Collinsville (big maybe), Maryville, Swansea, Columbia, St. Charles, St. Paul, OFallon (MO), St. Peters, Arnold, and Jefferson County. We have two realtors - one for IL and one for MO.

We are priced out of Kirkwood.

School districts are not an issue for us except in regards to resale because we homeschool.

How far [time wise] does/would your husband like to commute? 35 miles from Lambert/STL

Would you like to be able to hike/bike right from your own neighborhood, or traveling a short/med distance to such? not important

Prefer older or newer home? Less than 30 years old

Subdivision or a town-type area? Prefer country (we would like a large lot or a little acreage) or subdivision. NOT urban at all!

What general area is the hospital located? No hospital needs here...

That good FishTacos...I love fish tacos! Yum! LOL
