The city of Clayton, Missouri, celebrated its centennial in 2013. It's hard to believe this city of 15,000 has survived this long, considering its first stream of revenue came from a tax on dogs! 

Just outside St. Louis, Missouri, you will find the posh city of Clayton. Lavish homes, eye-catching architecture and its storybook appearance make it a perfect setting to film "Desperate Housewives." The city is a picture perfect place to live, with art boutiques, one of a kind eateries and clothing stores. Residents lacking something to do can always take a two-mile ride into St. Louis. Education is obviously important to the citizens of Clayton, with private secondary schools like Washington University and Concordia Seminary calling the city home.

Finding an Apartment

Clayton, Missouri, is not a city you can drive into and easily find an apartment or home in a day or two. Newcomers should do their research on apartment availability and rents before deciding to call this city home. An above average income will help make the transition easier, as Clayton is more expensive than many mid-continent towns when it comes to the cost of living. Consider home rentals, as well as apartment rentals, and make sure your credit history is a shining example of greatness! After all, Forbes and Fortune 500 don’t have their headquarters in Clayton for no reason. Once you find the housing you want, relocating is a breeze.

Neighborhoods

There are several neighborhoods worth mentioning in Clayton that you may want to call home.

Wydown Forest: Wydown Forest is an upscale neighborhood full of close-knit neighbors. Fourth of July parties and fireworks, seasonal neighborhood cookouts and potluck dinners dot the community calendar. Wydown Forest even holds its own holiday parades. This community is a popular area, and apartment searches may take some time. You can find very nice homes for rent, but be ready to pay! $$$$

Old Town: Just as the name suggests, this subdivision is one of the first subdivisions built in Clayton. Complete with street signs written in Old English and the historic Hanley House, this area of Clayton can only be described as charming. Residents will find housing and apartments more readily available in this area. Old Town is also close to schools, parks and shopping. $$$

Davis Place: The Davis Place subdivision has something for everyone. This area is large and always full of activity. Just like other Clayton areas, this urban subdivision has a neighborhood association that finds time to plan neighborhood parties, plays and parades. They also have plenty of rules regarding fencing, landscaping and other home guidelines. $$$

Claverach Park: The Claverach Park development sits right next to Oak Knoll Park. This subdivision is an older neighborhood that has been around since the 1930s. It's full of character, with beautiful overgrown trees and unique stone and brick homes with large yards. Homes are available for a steep price, but you may find apartment living to be scarce in this area. $$$$

Living in Clayton

Residents of Clayton who don’t wish to drive can use the Metrolink train. This transportation system currently has two stations in Clayton, and many residents choose to take the Metrolink to St. Louis in lieu of driving.
