Are you looking to relocate to the St. Louis area? While there are many neighborhoods surrounding downtown there aren’t many that compete with Chesterfield. Named 2nd best place to live in Missouri in 2023. Chesterfield is by far one of the most desirable places to live in St. Louis County.  Just 22 miles west of downtown with a population of approximately 49,000 people, it has a suburban feel plus all of the to-do of the city life. Offering award winning restaurants, a good school district and plenty of entertainment for adults and children! 

Depending on whether you’ve looked around at the area you may have already noticed that some of the cities surrounding St. Louis come with a price tag.

The median home in Chesterfield sells for around 500k while the average household income is around 124k. While Chesterfield isn’t cheap it’s also not at the top of the most expensive cities in the area either. With Ladue over doubling the median home sale price comparatively it’s safe to say Chesterfield is a bargain.

So what makes Chesterfield such a special place. Well to start, it is home to several kid friendly attractions sure to keep the kids busy! Faust park consists of the Butterfly house, the St. Louis carousal built in 1921, sculpture park and trails to walk that come alive at Halloween with gouling ghost stories & lantern walk. The park also hosts a variety of events throughout the year such as Fall festivals, hay rides and light shows. In colder weather kids can jump off the extra energy at BounceU, ride giant slides at Slick City or play arcade games at The Main Event. Chesterfield has several spacious and scenic parks with large playgrounds. Lastly don’t forget The Family Aquatic Center where you and your family can spend your summers sliding, splashing and relaxing in the lazy river.
