I plan on moving from las Vegas for a new start but I have issues. I cant really go and visit to look for a place. I know the area I wanna stay but I'm worried if things will work out. Moving to another state with out visiting first. Also what should I do about getting around when I get there. I need general information about moving out of state.

Hi Tatiana.

What area are you interested in thus far?

Do you have a car or know how to drive?

What's your rental budget (assuming you are renting)? How old is your kid or kids?

That will help us help you.

Are your kids school age? That's a huge determinant.

^^ i'd go with the above.

As much as I love the city, if you have kids, unless they can test/lottery into a magnet school (Home Page - St. Louis Public Schools Magnet and Choice Schools) or afford private/parochial school, I wouldn't recommend sending them to a regular public school in the city yet (maybe in 10 years if they get better). However, not having a car would make living in in some parts of the suburbs a nightmare. There are places close to metrolink and bus stations but not as many as in the city.

I would recommend looking in Shrewsbury, a small section of which is in the Webster Groves School district. It's close enough to the city for good public transportation, and has great public schools if you're in the Webster Groves district. You might not get much for your money, but it's a relatively safe area with great parks for young children. You would be close the the metrolink and bus stops. However, there would not be much available as far as grocery stores, shopping, etc. within walking distance. Some areas of Maplewood might be OK as well, you'd just have to be more careful about evaluating schools. Brentwood would be my next suggestion-again you'd have a hard time in your price range, but it's not impossible to find something small, and know that you are in a safe area with good schools, and have decent public transportation. Someone further north might be able to tell you something about Hazelwood, or Florissant? I believe there are some decent schools in those areas too, and it would be easier to find housing.

Well- 500-650 probably won't get a great apartment in St. Louis. I looked on www.apartments. com, and some did come up in the 500-650 price range. And you didn't specify if that's just for the apartment or your price range for apartment AND utilities. Some are in the Hazelwood area which I'm not sure if it's still a great area or not.. I lived in Hazelwood before, but I also had a car.
