Moving to St. Louis Today!

Located in the heart of the Midwest, St. Louis is one of America’s fastest growing cities with more than 300,000 residents. “STL” was founded in 1764 and named for King Louis IX of France. Throughout time, it has maintained its status of an independent city (meaning it has no counties within city limits). Between its French past and waves of immigrants from Ireland, Germany and Italy, St. Louis has a mix of historical influences, noticeable in its architecture, monuments, cuisine and music. In 2013 we ranked St. Louis as the #23 most popular destination, as chosen by our customers moving into The Lou. Whether you’re moving here for the culture, the job market or the burgeoning creative class, we welcome you to St. Louis.
