We get asked all of the time where is the best place to live in St. Louis, but we also get asked: what is the most central place to be? This is especially important when it comes to Corporate Housing. St. Louis is really not that bad when it comes to traffic, and you can get almost anywhere in the city (non rush-hour) in 20 to 30 minutes. But to be in the best, most central location, our suggestions would be:
Central West End
These areas envelope a wide swath of the west end of St. Louis City, and the east end of St. Louis County. There is abundant shopping, entertainment and dinning. These area are really in the exact center of the county/city glom. Our second choices for most central are:
Again, we're referring to Corporate Housing, because these two areas (which basically border each other) are close to highway 270, which encircles the city. They also both have abundant shopping, and dining, though you will need to head further east to get to places like the Zoo, Muny, etc.
