Hello ... I would be incredibly very thankful for any & all answers to my many questions: What STL neighborhoods & nearby towns have the highest ground elevation & the most rolling hills? Has there really been an increase in tick-borne diseases like Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever, etc. in the area? Do people living in the STL area avoid hiking in the woods, etc. because of ticks? I am guessing Lyme disease is not much of a problem because Missouri ticks are of the visible Dog Tick & Lone Star variety, which you can easily see, as opposed to the Deer Tick in the Northeast ... can't see 'em, they're so tiny! Any opinions about the cities of Wildwood, High Ridge, Eureka, Pacific & House Springs? Are any of these towns more than a 30 minute commute from Chesterfield? Regarding the infamouse STL crime rate: Is it mostly concentrated in the north-northeast half of the city? Is the neighborhood of Soulard a safe place to stroll around at night, by yourself? Which months do most people typically shut their windows at night because it's too cold to keep them open while sleeping? Is it still pretty cold in March? Yes, I've already done many searches online but nothing is better than people's opinions & info., not even "hard data." Anyway, I currently live in Connecticut, came up here for employment reasons ... it's been 4 years & I call it "doing time" because winter is 8 months long & it is usually either raining, just rained or is about to rain ... the people up do not use words like "excuse me", "please" and "thank you" ... they are the rudest most unhappy people I've ever met and I have lived all over the country, even in N.J., and I still can't get use to the rudeness, even after 4 years. Last question: What do you like most about STL & what do you like the least (what do you dislike?) Thank you, so much, in advance!

Hi folks, Looks like I'm not going to get to STL, after all. In case someone was thinking about bothering to answer any one of the billion questions I asked (above) no need ... but I appreciated the opportunity to post questions on this site; if I go to STL, it'll be just to visit ...and party! Looks like it'd would have been a fun place to live.

Can't answer all of your questions, but all of the areas you mention are within 30 minutes or Chesterfield, Soulard is a safe area, but I would still be cautious walking alone at night in any area. The north area of the city gets the most negative media attention, but the other areas and suburbs have their share. No noticiable increase in tick diseases. We do a lot of hiking and bike riding with no problems with ticks. (mosquitoes are another problem during late summer) St louis Hills and the river bluffs of MO and IL have rolling hills high elevation.
