I made a last minute decision to visit St. Louis for the very first time.
It definitely exceeded my expectations and was so worth it, there’s so much architecture that I could spend at least a week exploring (I’m an architecture and history nerd).
Here’s some of things I did (my stories tell the story 🤣):
- National Museum of Blues
- City tour on a trolley
- Walked a ton just looking at random buildings.
- Breakfast at Mudhouse
- Lunch at a Nigerian restaurant
- Spent the evening at the Busch Stadium area for baseball game.
- Breakfast at Rooster
- Anheuser-Busch Brewery tour
- Riverboat cruise (underwhelming)
- Gateway arch (tram to the top)
Things I learned:
There are pockets of neighborhoods that don’t blend in with others, so some areas are completely secluded while others are packed with people.
At 10pm downtown is practically dead, which is kind of sad cuz it’s so pretty 😒
As a person that loves to people watch, the baseball game was the only thing that helped me find people LOL.
They have a stadium for every major sport which I think is crazy and amazing all the same.
The city built and made a lot of things for the 1904 world fair, some of those things have been preserved but some aren’t in use at all.
The company that bought Budweiser has like 300 other beers including Stella Artois
Unfortunately there are no developments along the river, such as restaurants and shops.
The breweries and restaurant don’t work well together, so it’s hard to find beers from the many breweries, without going to the actual brewery.
They get just as cold as Michigan with lighter snow and get as hot as most southern states.
I think that covers it... have you ever been in St. Louis? What were your favorite things to do there?
