Destination St. Louis
“The Gateway to the West,” St. Louis is known for its 79 distinct neighborhoods, landmarks and historic sites including the famous Gateway Arch and the Museum of Westward Expansion, beer (stop by the Budweiser Clydesdale Stable if you take the Anheuser-Busch Brewery tour!), music — jazz, blues, and ragtime are deeply entwined in the city’s culture and history, and sports — its residents are devoted to their Cardinals and Rams.
Urban explorer, die-hard sports fan, aficionado of family fun…no matter what type of traveler you are, you’ll find what you’re looking for in St. Louis. Bike around Forest Park, visit the Zoo, take in a baseball game, sample unique regional cuisine and local craft brews, lose yourself in charming neighborhoods, or see the city through the eyes of Lewis and Clark.
Plan to spend some time in the Delmar Loop — this six-block entertainment district is packed with hip bars, eclectic restaurants, live music venues, vintage clothing boutiques, and a Hollywood-inspired walk of fame featuring St. Louis celebrities. Catch a show at the historic Tivoli Theatre or learn about our solar system along the outdoor Planet Walk exhibit. Shop for quirky gifts or souvenirs and grab a bite to eat at one of the dozens of restaurants and outdoor cafés.
For a night out, check out the new sports-anchored entertainment district in the heart of downtown Ballpark Village St. Louis. Jump a few blocks north to Washington Avenue or Laclede’s Landing and take your pick of some of the hottest bars and dance clubs in St. Louis. Go for dinner and a show at Westport Plaza’s 42-acre entertainment district, or check out the boutiques and restaurants in Clayton and the Central West End. If live music is your thing, the Soulard neighborhood boasts some of the best blues venues in town.
