St. Louis is a city with a great amount of cultural history and enough diversity for anyone to feel comfortable. In recent years, there have been many developments to both daylight activities and the nightlife scene. While many view St. Louis as a turbulent city, I have come to know it as a place where one can find an activity to satisfy their every need. Whether it be trying new exotic restaurants, hiking above a river or enjoying one of the many wineries that surround the city, there will always be a way to make great memories.

Saint Louis is a nice city to live especially for families. There’s lots of parks and historical places to visit. My favorite place to visit is our local zoo, which has free admission. During the summer time there’s food trucks in the park every Friday. The summers are hot and in the winter it can get very cold.

Life in the midwest may not seem as glamorous or fun to some who adore life in coastal or mountain regions. However, you are looking in the right place if you want cheaper places to stay and to escape the fast life of grander cities. Don’t let anyone or anything stop you from enjoying jazz and blues or one of our famous restaurants, Fritz. Plus, if you are an animal lover or enjoy historical sites and museums, you won’t have to pay a penny to enter any museums or zoos while you’re here.

St. Louis is a city rich in history. The city is nearly as old as New Orleans, our southern neighbor downriver. Some say that our state is the most eastern of the western states. Others say that we are southern, with the blues and jazz music from the Mississippi Delta influencing the ragtime born in this city.

Saint Louis, nicknamed The Gateway City, is known for many attractions, but the most compelling is the Gateway Arch. After-all the city was nicknamed after the magnificent 630-foot monument, it’s the tallest arch in the whole world and the tallest man-made monument in the Western-Hemisphere of the United States of America.
