What to see in St Louis

St Louis Attractions

The city's distinctive neighbourhoods comprise the real heart of St Louis, retaining the influence of the many ethnic groups which settled the city. The Hill is known for its old-world charm and excellent restaurants imbued with a Latin flavour lent by its Italian community.

The Central West End is a trendy quarter filled with chic boutiques and antique shops, sidewalk cafes, art galleries, and some of St Louis's finest residential properties. The French neighbourhood of Soulard has a colourful Saturday produce market.

Free attractions are a St Louis tradition, and today's visitors will find more high-quality attractions here at no cost than almost anywhere else in the USA. There are scores of interesting things to do for free, including numerous activities geared towards children. This makes it an excellent family destination and a good urban option for budget travellers.
