St Louis Holidays Overview


Influenced by the westward expansion, St. Louis is a home to many firsts Ė the first skyscraper in the world, the first concrete stadium in the world and the first ice cream cone Ė and thatís just the tip of the iceberg. A blend of old world charms and modern day luxuries might be the star attraction of the city, but each neighbourhood also promises to offer tourists with its own culture and history.

St. Louis experienced a major boom in terms of its populations in the late 1800s due to the large number of Italian and German immigrants settling in the area. Known to be the largest city of the Great Plains, St. Louis also offers a unique vibe thanks to its culturally diverse population and unique surroundings. Baseball and beer are the mainstays of St. Louis, but it also ensures that there is an array of historical and cultural attractions for tourists to choose from.

The Gateway Arch might be the most famous landmark in the city, but sights like the Museum of Westward Expansion, Anheuser-Busch factory tours and St. Louis Cathedral should not be missed. There are a number of attractions for the entire family with the Forest Park attracting adults and the Magic House and the local zoo ensuring that kids do not feel left out.

The city has kick-started the musical careers of numerous legends such as Tina Turner, Miles Davis and Scott Joplin and its musical influences can be seen all through the streets of St. Louis. Live music venues and world famous concerts might be the star musical attractions, but donít forget to check out those lively tunes that can be heard around the public squares and parks of the city.

What is it? Within the riverside park known as the Jefferson National Expansion Memorial, the Gateway Arch is a soaring landmark above the city's skyline - the thin stainless steel arc reaches to twice the height of the Statue of Liberty at 630ft (192m). It symbolises the role of St Louis as the 'Gateway to the West' for the pioneers who journeyed along the Oregon and Santa Fe Trails towards the western frontier. It is also dedicated to the US president who was responsible for opening up the West. An observation deck that is reached by a tram system provides magnificent views over the city, the Mississippi and the spreading plains. Also on the site with the Arch is the Old Courthouse Museum that was the venue for the hearing of several momentous cases during the 19th century. At the base of the monument is the excellent Museum of Westward Expansion with exhibits covering exploration of the West and its honoured pioneers, including Lewis and Clark, the Plains Indians and buffalo soldiers. The Odyssey IMAX Theatre shows big-screen films about the region and its history. Hours of Operation: The museum is open daily 8am to 10pm (summer) and 9am to 6pm (winter).
