St. Louis Reviews

St. Louis has some very interesting landmarks with character all their own. The Arch for instance, breathtaking as it is unique, I promise you won't find another like it! Another one of my personal favorites would have to be the Busch Stadium. I'm a huge Cardinals fan, so it just tickles me how nicely they've remodeled it.
Unfortunately there was a second part to this question which was, "what would you change?" The major problem here is violence. I know that sounds scary but before you totally ex St. Louis off your bucket list I would keep in mind there's good and bad in every bigger city. We have heart! We have motivated individuals, myself included that are making a change each day. Showing sympathy and compassion or offering aid to someone less fortunate. These small tasks heal our communities in a big way.

St. Louis is an incredibly diverse town. It offers a decent quality of life for its residents. Living expenses are completely affordable, plus each neighborhood have an historic artifact with the community. For instance, Delmar Loop is historically know for the blues. Blueberry Hill has had many artists, actors, and directors there to either: eat, drink, or perform. Plus down on "The Loop" there is a Walk of Fame, which originated in 1989. St. Louis is also know for it's Fired Ravoli's. This is just a glimpse, but I would encourage everyone to take a weekend vacation to Saint Louis, Missouri!
While St. Louis, Missouri does have a high crime rate, the city is still a wonderful hidden gem. We have many treasures located around the city that are family friendly, and enjoyable. For example, we have to St. Louis Zoo which is ranked as one of the top 10 best Zoo's in the country. The best part about that is that entry to our zoo is free! Overall, St. Louis is home for me so I may be bias but I wouldn't count it out as a great city.
