Gateway to the West

Test the local claim that Saint Louis is second only to Washington, D.C. in the number of free activities available by spending your holiday exploring the city's central neighborhoods, famous for their restored century-old red-brick buildings. Founded in 1764 and named after King Louis IX of France, Saint Louis became a major port on the Mississippi River after the American government acquired it as part of the famous Louisiana Purchase. Always a meeting place for diverse cultures, Saint Louis continues to draw immigrants from every corner of the globe: the city is notably home to the world's largest concentration of Bosnians outside their homeland. The number of attractions and free activities are more than enough to fill your itinerary. Take a peek at our custom trip planner: Saint Louis and its charms laid bare and easily scheduled.
