Affton is a small suburb right outside the city boundary of St. Louis. It is a wonderful place to live because it resembles a little town. It contains all the shops and restaurants that one would need but it also contains home of all sizes and materials. Everyone in Affton seem to always get along very well despite the many cultural diversities. Affton is a place where you can always run into someone you know either from a local store, church or getting to know them by walking on Grant's Trail. Affton is not fancy or known for having lots of money but it simple and is a place to call home because simply it is a place of respect and kindness to all people. This is a special place for not only myself and family but for many other families that I call my neighbor.

Nice small community with close ties to various churches, scouts and schools. Most people know their neighbors and enjoy the quiet of a small town neighborhood with the convenience of a big city close by.

Affton is a small primarily residential suburb of St. Louis on the south side of the city. It is close to shopping, is mostly safe, and generally a good area for children.
