Things to Do in St. Louis
The Gateway to the West is no stranger to award-winning . The emblem of the city is the Gateway Arch, the 630-foot-tall monument that symbolizes the westward expansion of the U.S. as pioneered by Lewis and Clark. But perhaps more vital to residents are the St. Louis Cardinals, the Major League Baseball team that plays in Busch Stadium, where perfect views of the arch and skyline are as captivating as the game. To get to know the town, catch the buzz of street life along Cherokee Street, which is lined with funky cafes and stores. Let oversize public art bedazzle at Citygarden sculpture park.
If you're traveling with kids, be sure to check out the St. Louis Zoo, where you'll meet 18,000 animals, or let their imaginations run wild in the Magic House children's museum. Throughout the year, the whole family can ice skate at Ice Zone at the Mills Mall. The Fox Theatre features touring Broadway shows while Powell Hall delights visitors with top-notch musical concerts.
