With a welcoming Midwest vibe and an attractive cost of living, it’s no wonder nearly 3 million people call St. Louis home. Not only is the living easy, it’s affordable. Consider that the median rent for a one-bedroom apartment in St. Louis is $856. Then think about spending nearly three times that for a one bedroom in New York or Palo Alto.
