O’Fallon is one of the fastest growing communities in St. Charles County, and St. Charles County is one of the fastest growing counties in the nation. Although this growth is welcomed, the community continues to maintain the friendly atmosphere of a small town. O’Fallon successfully blends its beautiful natural surroundings with unique shopping, popular restaurants, business and professional buildings, and modern technology.

The community is located approximately 35 miles west of St. Louis, and right off the I70, which makes for a quick drive into St. Louis. Not for nothing is O’Fallon known as, “The Crossroads of the Nation.”

Just five minutes from O’Fallon in picturesque Wentzville is Rotary Park, home to the St. Charles County Fair, the Greater St. Louis Renaissance Fair and the summer concert series. Twice a year, the city also has a Nostalgic Drag Race and Rod Run where vintage automobiles drive through town on Friday evening and then race each other at the Mid America Raceways.

O’Fallon students receive an exemplary, comprehensive education. Lindenwood University has a branch in Wentzville focusing on the educational needs of western St. Charles County, Warren County and Lincoln County. The University of Missouri at Columbia, approximately 80 miles west of Wentzville, enrolls approximately 6,700 new students each year. St. Charles Community College in St. Peters offers both credit and non-credit courses. They enroll approximately 8,000 students annually.

O’Fallon is home to the River City Rascals, a semi-pro baseball team. St. Charles is home to the St. Charles Family Center that hosts the St. Louis Renegades (football), the St. Louis Swarm (basketball), and the St. Louis River Otters (hockey). The Ameristar Casino on the Missouri River is also located in St. Charles. The Americas Exposition Park in nearby Lake St. Louis provides equestrian shows throughout the year.

O’Fallon is growing quickly. Neighborhoods reflect homeowners’ pride of ownership in a wide range of housing options, from custom 4,000-sq.ft. estate homes and beautiful, well-preserved historic cottages to newer subdivisions and town homes and apartment complexes. New residential homes range in price from $90,000 to more than $500,000.

Seasonal changes add to the enchantment of the area too, and there is nothing better than watching the changing colors of the leaves, or enjoying an ice cream on a hot summer day. No matter the season there is always something to do right here in O’Fallon!
