St. Louis, the historical Gateway to the West, is remarkable for its ability to attract people from every demographic under the sun. Why is that? Well, take a vibrant urban setting, make it affordable, and make it beautiful (with Forest Park, one of the largest city parks in the U.S.) Then offer great nightlife for 20-somethings, plus safe and secure neighborhoods for families, and you have St. Louis. Oh, and top it all off with down-to-earth Midwestern charm, and great food. From your very first day as a resident, this city will win your heart.
There's a lot to discover in St. Louis, and the exciting thing is, you're just getting started. Different neighborhoods add a sense of vitality to the streets. After sunset this Midwestern city is the opposite of a ghost town-- there is still a delicious meal to eat, shows to see, and pubs to relax in afterward. The Hill is justifiably famous for the family-owned Italian eateries on every corner. Central West End, the Loop, and Soulard attract young professionals, artists, and everyone in between. If that's you, prepare to see and be seen in a night on the town you won't soon forget. Don't forget to wind down with a "concrete" (that would be a custard milkshake) at Ted Drewes.
Families may be more interested in Clayton and Kirkwood, two leafy suburbs with a Main-Street-circa-1960 ambiance. Gorgeous and well-maintained original ranch homes, classic architecture and roadways (including America's original Route 66!) all landed St. Louis a spot in the National Trust for Historic Preservation, and neighborhoods like these are a large part of its appeal. Lovers of all things vintage will find plenty of interest to them at the Kemp Auto Museum, which documents the St. Louis area's love affair with cars.
St. Louis children might be the best-entertained group in America. With so many fun and free things to do in the area, like the eclectic City Museum, there's no excuse for "I'm bored" coming from the backseat. When you need a break from pavement and skyscrapers, take the kids Grant's Farm to get up close with farm animals and learn where the fruits, vegetables, and meat they eat for dinner comes from. Love football and baseball? There's no better city to enjoy both. The St. Louis Cardinals have one of the best records in baseball, and some of the most devoted fans. The Rams are also a lot of fun to watch.
