Relocating to Edwardsville IL? The View of St. Louis From the Bluffs

Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Alliance in St.Louis' Illinois suburbs 475.122155

People often ask me about the commute from Edwardsville, IL to their jobs in downtown St. Louis or St. Louis County. Is it easy to get to St. Louis? Will I save time living in Edwardsville as opposed to moving to far western suburbs?  

I can see the beautiful downtown skyline from Edwardsville, I tell them.

Yes, you will save time on your commute. And -- bonus -- you'll enjoy all the benefits of friendly, small town living in Edwardsville, with a major city within easy reach when you want to take advantage of everything it offers. Commute time? About 25 minutes.

We are part of the St. Louis metro area, so look to the east for housing opportunities. Edwardsville is home to Southern Illinois University at Edwardsville and is a lively, sophisticated community with a long history. We're located on Old Route 66 where it winds through southwestern Illinois to the west.

I took this picture this morning from the parking lot of the Comfort Inn on IL-157 in Edwardsville. Our community sits atop the river bluffs overlooking the Mississippi River Valley and St. Louis to the west.

Nancy, I passed through your city years ago. Looks like Edwardsville has great views of St. Louis.
