I'm looking for advice about where to live in the St. Louis suburbs, especially along 55 in the Lindbergh/Mehlville area all the way down to Arnold/Imperial.

Traffic on 55-what's it like? Anyone know how it compares to DC?

Public Schools (all ages)-Lindbergh, Fox, Mehville-any great, any awful?

What are the above places like? (looking for good family life, low crime, low traffic, low cost taxes/housing, etc.)

Any advice at all would be appreciated.

Default Down I-55

Stay in STL County along I-55. Mehlville and Lindbergh are great school districts, but younger families in zip 63129 an area we call Oakville. You can find quite areas with large lots close to 255-55 with trees, newer homes and great community features.

What are you looking for in your new home and area. Traffic is light for a big city on I-55. Where are you needing to go?

Traffic is a huge problem if you are looking to work in Mid/West county. I-270 JAMS to a hault most days around Gravios to I-44, then opens up.

I dont' think STL traffic compares to DC, so I think any part of this area will have you feeling like there is NO traffic!!!. My children are not of school age yet, but if we had to move, the imperial/oakville/melhvile school districts would work for us. I have heard they are decent/safe.
