St. Louis is a great city with a very diverse community. St. Louis is mostly very quiet but can get loud at the right times. St. Louis is a sports-fanatic city filled with loyal Cardinals, Blues, and soon soccer (St. Louis City; SLC) fans. St. Louis is a great place to stay, especially downtown if you love to see a light-filled environment at nighttime. Downtown St. Louis is a great place for sightseeing, especially by the historical, Gateway Arch. Not only is the environment lovely, but so is the food. St. Louis is known for toasted ravioli, frozen custard, St. Louis styled pizza, gooey butter cake, etc. When you eat St. Louis' food, you will not be disappointed. It's amazing! If you're planning for a quick, spontaneous trip soon, I recommend that you think about St. Louis.

What I like about Saint Louis is the affordability of the housing. I like the colleges/universities we have are all near each other and are top ranking. The rich diverse history of the city. I enjoy the growing restaurant scene popping up. I enjoy the quaint little areas like the Central West End and downtown on Washington where residence can enjoy fine dining, shopping, and nightlife within walking distance of where they live. The city has beautiful architecture in the buildings and brick houses that's been here for a hundred years. Our city has some of the best public schools in the country. We have great city attraction such as the Saint Louis Arch, The St. Louis Zoo, and our new Aquarium. We have top notch hospitals such as Barnes and St. Louis University Hospital. I love that we that greet people by asking "What high school did you go to". Summers are a blast here with free concerts and plays. Finally, the best thing about my city is baseball go Saint Louis Cardinals!
I love St. Louis because it has a great night life, sports fanbase, and plenty of indoor and outdoor activities! The St. Louis Arch is admired by everyone living in the area (including those surrounding), and is a popular tourist sight. The craftsmanship is incredible, and riding the elevator to catch a view from the top of the Arch is an experience that is almost unmatched. The best place to be on game nights is either Busch Stadium, Enterprise Center, or joining the hype at Ballpark Village!
