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
