Timberwood Trails is where all the ex-wives in St. Charles County live getting alimony.

I never thought I'd make the leap either, but you know. Life happens!

Within a 10-mile radius of Progress West, I wouldn't say there are any truly "bad" areas. I would LOVE to see you find something in Weldon Spring Heights but that's very slim pickings. It's like a time capsule subdivision! I know you would appreciate it.

There are certainly some older, cheaper areas in O'Fallon, St Peters and city of St. Charles that are a bit rundown and have more renters than owners. But for the most part, they are the exception.

My favorite thing about St Charles so far is the excellent library system and all the lovely parks & trails. And yes, there are MANY cookie cutter houses but also some neat pockets of unique homes too

Lake St Louis is a very desirable, safe area. Depending on your price range you might have trouble finding a suitable house there.

If you like Florissant, you may actually be satisfied with the northern parts of O'Fallon and the downtown St. Charles area. Both have some nice older tree-lined streets and are more walkable than the newer developments around 64/40. If you like new housing, though, you'll have infinite options around Progress West where your husband could ride his bike to work. It's a little "sprawl-ish," but you're still close to a lot of amenities, including golf courses, a YMCA, restaurants, parks, and you have great shopping just a few miles down the highway in Chesterfield Valley. I would also recommend Weldon Spring. It has some very large houses on large lots. It looks like West STL County. It's within ten miles of the hospital, plus Weldon Spring goes right down to the Katy Trail, which is a great biking path along the Missouri River.

As a teenager, my mother lived in Winghaven. It's a beautifully kept area with kind people. It seems like a very expensive suburb and everything nearby was clean and high class.

Sorry if I didn't explain that the best way, it's hard to describe an area, haha.

Park Charles South is a decent subdivision. I lived there from 1997-2012 and attended Fairmont Elementary Gr. 3-5. Louis C. Saeger Middle School is in Cottleville, as is its neighbor Francis Howell Central HS.

When I left Park Charles to return to the NE I saw the subdivision change demographics. A lot of families, young ones at that were moving in. The only areas I'd watch out for in PCS are the apartments and condos along Park Charles Blvd South.
