It is large enough to feel the rush of a large city but small enough to give a “hometown” feel. Its close proximity to many Midwestern major cities leaves it poised well to host the best of entertainment in the arts and regional conferences. Florissant itself is a dominant city on the immediate north side of St. Louis just 15 minutes from the airport and 30 minutes from downtown St. Louis. It is racially and economically diverse, yet overall it appeals to the educated and upwardly mobile.
