St. Louis, Missouri was named as one of the best USA cities in which to live. I have nothing against St. Louis, but I find it a bit dull. I was happy to see a new aquarium had opened the last time I visited.
It has its highlights. There is the iconic Gateway Arch and then the worthwhile City Museum and Cathedra Basilica of Saint Louis.
In nice weather, a stroll around the meandering Forest Park is wonderful. I recall though, on one such outing, I was admonished by local residents for walking alone in the park.
The private streets with security guards posted at their entrances put me off a bit.
You can generally find good Southern style breakfasts in St. Louis.
If you like baseball, the St. Louis Cardinals play at the Busch Stadium.
I’ve always liked the 1904 song about meeting at the fair…
and here it is sung by Judy Garland, Meet Me in St. Louis.
“If you send a damned fool to St. Louis, and you don’t tell them he’s a damned fool, they’ll never find out.”–-Mark Twain from his 1883 book, Life on the Mississippi
