There’s a lot to love about the suburb of O’Fallon, the people are wonderful, the weather throughout the years is manageable and St. Luis is a hope and skip away. When I first moved to O’Fallon, it was relatively easy to find a job. What first attracted me to the city was the fact I’d be able to commute to the big city, if ever the urge arose.

I’d always wanted to love somewhere that had the quintess I’d small town America, with low crime and great school. In the case of O’Fallon, I got lucky with the crime rate, but the schools aren’t rated very well. I’m hinesight, I wouldn’t recommend for a couple trying to start a family.

Some of the best places to be however include Hut Sports Bar off Behrens Drive, and Peel Wood Fired Pizza on South Zachery Street. Decently priced, and great placed to meet up with friends for a night out of the big city.
