The Place:

Situated at the confluence of the Mississippi and Missouri Rivers, St. Louis (STL) is the Gateway to the West and long been known as the starting point for exploration and opportunity. STL offers quaint neighborhoods and an affordable housing market.

The St. Louis metro area is home to over 2.8 million residents. While it has a “small town feel” it offers the excitement of a large city. From professional baseball to outdoor activities, art to dining, this town offers plenty to do.

STL is making its mark as a culinary hot spot. Try the unique pizza or select a restaurant that serves up a side of the “blues.” Live music, in historic clubs like Blueberry Hill, is not to be missed.

In St. Louis you’re in the center of it all – literally. Explore the nearby Ozark Mountains or visit a few of the surrounding 6,000 caves. Omaha, Kansas City, Branson, Chicago, Milwaukee, Nashville, Memphis, Louisville, and Cincinnati are all under eight-hours away.
