If it’s vast land and area you’re looking for, then look no further than O’Fallon. As the seventh largest city in Missouri and the biggest in St. Charles, O’Fallon has become a charming home for its 76,000 residents. Just 30 miles west of St. Louis and minutes from St. Louis County, it has a great location for people who want to experience the big city life – just not all the time.
In July of 2006, Money Magazine named the city “Best Place to Live,” a great honor for the community. And instead of carrying around that name and letting it go to their head, they celebrated by raising funds for a community charity. That is a wonderful way to earn a great reputation. And in 2008 they were repaid for their efforts by being named “Best Place to Live” again.
