Forbes has ranked St. Louis No. 14 on its list of the nation’s 40 best places for young professionals. It’s no surprise that a biz hub like Clayton is a draw for this bunch. Residents between 25 and 44 make up the area’s largest demographic — making the central-corridor area perfect for work and play! Dogtown and Tower Grove are especially popular because of the tight-knit atmosphere and attractive home prices. A lot of young people are still looking for the best deal for their dollar and these areas are a good place to be. While it doesn’t offer the same level of retail, Clifton Heights—west of The Hill—is also seeing a swell of activity. “There’s been a wave of young professionals moving in and purchasing homes because it’s affordable and centrally located,” says Debbie Layne, president of the Clifton Heights Neighborhood.
