Good Neighborhoods in St. Louis?

I am relocating and do not know the area. What are some good neighborhoods to live for a couple? Not directly in the city but about 20-30 minutes away from downtown. Preferably single family housing in a suburb.

Also, should we live in Illinois or Missouri? We are both recent college grads.

Any suggestions would be appreciated!

    The Forest Park area is always good. It's only semi-suburban, but there are beautiful neighborhoods and Wash U.

    If you want to be further out, look at St. Louis County (separate from the city) along 70. As far as the commute goes, your proximity to the highway is key, not the town.

    By all means, live in Missouri! Stay away from the Illinois side, very few people with a choice would even consider it.
