Visit St. Louis.

Learn why The Lou is a place people love to visit. Situated on the banks of the Mississippi River, St. Louis is a city filled with a variety of cultural, historical, and natural charm. And with many distinct neighborhoods to tour, including serene Forest Park and historic Soulard, there’s plenty to eat, see, and do in this Midwestern metropolis.

Perhaps one of the most popular places to see while in St. Louis is the Gateway Arch. This stainless steel arch rises 630 feet into the air and spans 630 feet from leg to leg. This engineering marvel has been standing since construction completed in 1965 and is now the home of the Museum of Westward Expansion. Visit to learn more about the history of the West as well as the construction of the arch. Once you’ve seen the Arch, head to the city oasis that sits west of downtown, Forest Park. With over 1,300 acres of things to do, visitors can enjoy the space by jogging along its trails, boating its waterways, or enjoying a lovely afternoon picnic.

Close to Forest Park is a beautiful, neo-Byzantine Roman Catholic cathedral known as the Cathedral Basilica of Saint Louis. Visitors can spend hours exploring the intricate art inside; the cathedral houses nearly 42 million glass tesserae pieces. Meanwhile, art buffs have no shortage of options throughout the city. The St. Louis Art Museum has more than 34,000 works of art, showcasing pieces from Europe, Asia, and ancient Egypt. Inside, visitors can find paintings, sculptures, photographs, textiles, and other pieces. Another destination to check out is the adventure-packed City Museum, which offers fun for every member of the family and children of all ages. Just south of Forest Park lies the Saint Louis Science Center, where visitors can explore more than 700 hands-on exhibits about space, animals, weather, and other fascinating topics.

Get your foodie fix while in St. Louis. From classic pub grub to authentic Bosnian and Italian fare, St. Louis is a vibrant multicultural city with traveler-approved eats. Try St. Louis-style pizza or sink your teeth into some classic St. Louis barbecue. Whether you’re planning a group dinner, special date-night, or meal the whole family can enjoy, the St. Louis food scene will not disappoint.
