St. Louis is perched just below the confluence of the Mississippi and Missouri rivers. It is home to America's tallest manmade monument, The Gateway Arch, which symbolizes St. Louis' historic role as the "Gateway to the West." St. Louis boasts a revitalized riverfront and wonderful downtown, as well as not to be missed outlying districts - from the artsy Central West End, to University (or "U") City, to the museums and playing fields of Forest Park, the jazz pubs of Soulard, and the cafes and Italian shops of the Hill.
A combination of Old World charm and modern urban living continues to characterize this energetic Midwestern city, in which a variety of events and activities abound. See a concert at one of St. Louis' many venues, including Off Broadway, The Pageant, Verizon Wireless Amphitheater, and Scottrade Center. Sports fans can cheer on the Cardinals or the Rams, then tee off on their own at the Timber Ridge Golf Park. World class attractions like the Saint Louis Art Museum, Saint Louis Zoo, Saint Louis Science Center, Anheuser-Busch Brewery, Grant's Farm, and the Missouri History Museum mean you'll never lack for entertainment in this historic and unique city.
