Yes that would be great. Anything helps.

It's actually north and east of the city that have crime issues.

So if you don't like cookie cutter, but want to be centrally located in a quaint area with big box shopping nearby I'd look at Kirkwood, Webster Groves, Des Peres etc.

I grew up near Ballwin. For the life of me I cannot figure out why someone would target the area as a place to move to if they weren't specifically moving for a job already lined up. There is nothing wrong with the area, but it is like any other suburban midwestern area.

My cousin's husband is in construction and owns a home in south STL, and I definitely haven't felt any problems around his neighborhood - just north of 255, and just west of Telegraph Road. The zip code is 63125, and there's a big Wal-Mart right there at Telegraph and 255.

Many areas of north STL has problems. The city of East STL has problems. There are many good neighborhoods in south STL, and many of the towns on the IL side are nice.

Hello everyone. I'm sorry that I have taken a long time to post a reply. I have since decided to go with Texas as a place to move to. I have also took a trip(June) to Round Rock and Flower Mound Texas. Both cities were great as far as people,weather,jobs are conserned. But I think Flower Mound would be the better choice. The road system in Round Rock was confusing to say least. I ended up spending 50 cents on a toll road and then turned off on the next road less than 2 minutes later! Also with the way the town is spread out alongside the highways,state roads, it felt more like a highway than a city or even a small town. Flower Mound by contrast, was easy to navigate. No toll roads and once I got to the city I didn't have to go on any highways or state roads at all! It felt like an actuall town(small city).My only regret about the trip, is that I didn't take it later when gas prices dropped and when the temperature was a little cooler. The humidity in both cities though were perfect. Enough humidity that it wasn't a dry heat, but not so much that I was "muggy" either. My health improved while I was there as well. I miss it very much
