Why Live in St. Louis?
Along the western bank of the Mississippi is the great city of St. Louis, MO. Originally founded by fur traders and named after Louis IX of France, St. Louis is now known for its great ethnic restaurants, professional hockey and baseball teams, and welcoming family atmosphere.
The city was planned during a time when great attention to detail was given to urban design, which is one reason you'll find that St. Louis has a fantastic parks system and is easily accessible by bike and foot. Tower Grove Park and Forest Park are our top two picks for hiking, trail riding, and picnicking!
Of course, you can't talk about St. Louis without mentioning its infamous Arch. The 630-foot silvery steel loop greets both visitors and residents alike, and remains the tallest man-made monument in the western hemisphere. Other top attractions include the St. Louis Art Museum, Busch Stadium, Missouri Botanical Gardens, and the St. Louis Zoo (which is one of the top ranked zoos in the U.S. and completely free of charge!).
