Edwardsville has become the premier destination for Southern Illinois natives looking for a change or those relocating to the Metro East from around the country. A town of less than 25,000 Edwardsville embodies the hometown feel and urban amenities that are sought out by so many modern homebuyers. A walk down Main Street in Edwardsville is like finding something that most thought had disappeared from American life, past bakeries, bookstores, artists, the local barber shop and a converted vaudeville theatre showcasing local and national acts as well as classic movies several nights a week.
In 2010 Family Circle Magazine named Edwardsville one of the ten best towns in America for families.
