St Louis, Missouri Holidays

St. Louis is a major city in Missouri along the Mississippi River. Its iconic, 630-ft. Gateway Arch, built in the 1960s, honours the early 19th-century explorations of Lewis and Clark and America's westward expansion in general. Replica paddlewheelers ply the river, offering views of the arch. The Soulard district is home to barbecue restaurants and clubs playing blues music.

St Louis Holidays

The St. Louis area has great options for outdoor enthusiasts of all types. Visit the Missouri Botanical Garden and the many great attractions along the I-44 corridor. Explore one of many parks including America’s favourite urban park, Forest Park.  Hike and bike along endless trails that crisscross the region. Paddle along the Mighty Mississippi and experience first-hand the confluence of two majestic rivers.  

In any given week in St. Louis, there are up to 300 chances to treat your ears to some phenomenal musicianship. Whether it’s Stevie Ray Vaughn-esque shredding in the Soulard neighbourhood, cool vocal stylings at a hip suburban bistro, or the joyful jamming of a Grateful Dead tribute band in the Loop, the live music scene is rocking visitors, conventioneers, and locals every single night.

Since the early 1800’s, St. Louis was destined to become a beer town. In addition to the large German and Irish population, there was plenty of water, rail connections, limestone caves, and an entrepreneurial spirit that provided the foundation for the city’s beer business. Today, the tradition continues as St. Louis is home to several microbreweries and brewpubs. Explore the history of St. Louis’ beer barons and discover that some of America’s favourite brands have roots in St. Louis.
