St. Louis Reviews

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.
St. Louis is a home for all. It's a bustling city with a small town feel. The everyday life of its inhabitants is filled with adventure and community. Take a stroll down Forest Park, view the city from the top of the Arch, catch a game at Busch Stadium, or have some fun at the City Museum.

Also, do not forget about the food! Try some authentic Italian cuisine at The Hill, eat an assortment of foods on Food Truck Fridays, or dine at any brewery. Make sure to order the toasted raviolis!

St. Louis is the gateway to a happy, healthy lifestyle.
