I just got word that I may be moving to STL this fall. I've read most of the relocation threads, but my question is a little different.
I want to make the most of my house hunting trip (1st time visit). I am looking to move into a 1bdr apartment thinking about possibly a loft. I don't want to waste my trip randomly visiting a bunch of neighborhoods that look good online.
I am a christian, 30 something, single (nvr married) w/ no kids. I have lived in Detroit, so although I don't want to be a victim, I'm not afraid to come to STL
I've also lived in the south as well. I'm well rounded and would like to live around professions with a diverse racial make-up. Im in a marathon walking club so I would like to move to a place that I could keep walking if possible (If not, are there any places I could drive to and then walk ~ smile)
If I were YOUR favorite sister, where would you direct me to start looking? Beyond apartment hunting, what places should I definitely visit to help me make up my mind about moving there?
