O’FALLON, Mo. (KMOV.com) – O’Fallon, Missouri has been named one of the top 10 “Best Cities for Young Families” by apartmentlist.com.

The city, which ranks seventh on the list, is the only Missouri city named in the top 50.

Safety, housing cost, school quality and child friendliness were used to rank the cities.

O’Fallon city officials said they are all about creating an environment where people can live, work and play.

“One of the great things we’re seeing in the last few years is we’re seeing a lot of people who grew up in O’Fallon that first moved out here 20 to 30 years ago when the area first started to boom, now they are coming back and they are graduating from college and they are getting jobs in the area,” said Tom Drabelle, the city’s communications director.

The City of St. Louis ranked 474th, one of the worst for young families.
