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 also one of the most beautiful and affordable places to live in the U.S. according to Travel & Leisure. Consider that the median rent for a one-bedroom apartment in St. Louis is $940. Then think about spending nearly three times that for a one bedroom in New York or Palo Alto.
