City Stories: St. Louis, MO

I’ve been to St. Louis just a few times over the years, and every time I’m there, I leave thinking, if only I could have a few more days here. There’s so much to see and do in this very underrated city.

Let’s start with some of the free things to do. I can’t understand how so many amazing things are free, but somehow they are.

Below is a list for those who want to take in some of the beautiful architecture St. Louis offers.

These things aren’t free but are highly worth the cost of admission:

Be sure to walk through these neighborhoods:

  • Central West End -stop into Left Bank Books and Jeni’s Ice cream, and be sure not to miss the homes in this area that are worth taking a stroll to see around the neighborhood.
  • The Grove -be sure to go on a mural hunt.
  • The Hill is the Italian area of St. Louis. Make a reservation because the locals pour into this area on the weekends.
  • Shaw
  • St. Louis Hills
  • Benton Park (one of the best meals I’ve had was in this area, The Mud House)
  • Old North St. Louis
  • And this is a small town outside of St. Louis, but still worth a visit, Kirkwood.

I know I’m missing many things because I still have so much to explore and learn in St. Louis. What are some of your favorite, never to miss spots in the city?

Thanks as always for being here! – Erin

“My family moved from Brooklyn, New York to Portland Oregon in July 2015, we’ve been exploring this beautiful city and part of the country ever since. Getting out into nature was one of the reasons we moved cross country and Portland has not let us down. We’ve been spending the year getting out and experiencing...
