Compare St. Peters to Top 10 Best Places
Positioned 30 miles northwest of big-city St. Louis with only 55,000 residents, St. Peters evokes quintessential small-town America. It's the kind of place where neighbors come together by the hundreds in a volunteer effort to help put on the big state swimming and diving meets every year.
And when they're hosted at the award-winning 236,000-square-foot Rec-Plex, who wouldn't want to pitch in? The facility, dramatically expanded in 2007 with Olympic-sized swimming pools and NHL-sized ice rinks, has become the epicenter of St. Peters' active community.
Not feeling fitness-minded? The town's low cost of living means you'll have no problem indulging in one (or all) of its scores of tasty mom and pop restaurants.
