Maplewood may be a small little blip on the map, but this 1.5 square mile region of St. Louis is booming. One century ago, Maplewood was advertised as a break from the city, or a place to get some air. Now with the growing area around Sutton and Manchester and the Greenwood Historical District, it’s become a smaller version of the hustle and bustle of city life.
The neighborhoods around Maplewood include several quaint houses with a charm and character that is indescribable. You won’t find any cookie-cutter housing, instead the homes are all unique and many have been owned by the same family for generations, giving it a great historic feel. But that doesn’t mean you’ll only see older families. In fact, according to the 2000 census, nearly 40% of Maplewood’s residents were between the ages of 25 and 34. Young urbanites and families are flocking to Maplewood for the inexpensive cost of living and the great atmosphere.

Living in Maplewood is a great value too; all housing types are less expensive than the averages for the state of Missouri. Plus you get all that Maplewood has to offer in a great up and coming neighborhood.
There are great restaurants that can be found throughout the area. If you take a walk along Manchester Road you are sure to find somewhere to tickle your taste buds. Plus there are tons of little boutiques and locally owned shops where you will find everything you need. Plus, Maplewood is home to Schlafly’s brewery, where you can eat great food and take a free tour of the brewery (where they offer delicious samples at the end).
Maplewood also offers a great aquatic center which has a giant leisure pool with slides, lazy rivers, and a 50 meter lap pool. It’s like a mini-water park right in your own backyard!
