    Interesting that Lake St. Louis, MO made the list. I wouldn’t have thought of it as a small town.

    It’s more a town that was originally built as a weekend lake house about 30-45 minutes from St. Louis, but as the suburbs moved west, it really just became part of the suburban sprawl. The city does have great leisure activities with the only boating lakes in the St. Louis area, golf courses and more. There is almost no commercial in the town (including restaurants), but they don’t need it since you can drive 10 minutes to the neighboring suburbs for whatever you need.

    Not that I’m complaining. Anytime a part of your city gets national attention, it’s a good thing.
