Life can be hard when you are a big city in the Midwest that is not Chicago. A “fly-over” city? We think not. Even though we are a good 4 hour drive from the “Windy City”, it can be hard to shake the shadow and convince people St. Louis is a great city to live, work, and play in its own right. If the other lists haven’t convinced you, maybe this one will.
1. Cost of Living
Do you know what affordable cost of living means? More money to spend on food, drinks and things. How does that not make us awesome?
2. Little Big City
St. Louis is big enough to house a thriving artist community, bars and clubs, public events and much more; while also being small enough that it is easy to create a sense of community.
3. Local Fare
Between toasted ravioli to the Provel covered pizza from Imo’s, you definitely will not regret trying some of the local staples. Make sure to finish up with dessert from Ted Drewes frozen custard. You can thank us later.
4. Free Culture
Many of our museums and public spaces are free! That means you can take in centuries of art or checkout wild life for nothing, making them great for fun and affordable date nights. See also, point number 1 again.
5. The St. Louis Brewery Gives Free Tours
FREE. On weekends. Seriously. Look it up.
6. 3 AM Bars
Compared to Chicago’s 2 AM bars, we obviously know how to have a good time. This includes your very own Howl at the Moon along with live music Thursday through Saturday.
7. The Jewel Box in Forest Park
Where else can you enjoy free museums, lush greenery, a zoo, and a gorgeous greenhouse? Don’t take our word for it, check it out yourself.
From the magnificent Forest Park to the Missouri Botanical Gardens to hidden trails, it is so easy to escape the city for a while if you’re feeling too congested. Take a day to hang out in the Butterfly House and see what we mean.
