Kirkwood is unlike most other communities. It feels like a small town and living among people you know. Having raised a daughter through elementary school, I now know so many families and run into people I know everywhere. You drive by homes and you know who lives in them. The best part is that is it so eclectic here. There are many types of people and all economic classes. There are tons of events for families and kids. Enjoy the parade, the Halloween Walk, the Santa/Winter Event, and all the quaint shops and fantastic dining! There is nowhere better in St. Louis!
