I moved to St. Louis because I had the opportunity to come to a great job with a growing Hispanic community. It was an added bonus that it was closer to my home outside of Chicago. There are so many parks and museums that are free to enjoy and it’s not as hot as San Antonio and not as cold as Chicago.
For me and my wife moving to St. Louis was a no brainer – this is a better place to live with better work opportunities for both of us. The relationships that you can create are amazing since it's becoming a more multicultural city.
