14 Places to Visit if You’re Moving to St. Louis | ST LOUIS STYLE

1. Cathedral Basilica of St. Louis

4431 Lindell Blvd.
St. Louis, MO 63108

Built throughout the early part of the 20th century, the Cathedral Basilica of St. Louis has to be seen to be believed. With stunning architecture and amazing mosaics, even non-Catholics will admit to having their minds blown. You can find info about tours here.

2. Lafayette Square

Be sure to show your guests all around Lafayette Square. It has a history of impressing out-of-towers — they can’t get over our gorgeous architecture. Soulard has the same effect.

3. Soulard Farmer’s Market

730 Carroll St.
St. Louis, MO 63104

Speaking of Soulard, don’t forget to take your friends to Soulard Market. You can grab some red beans and rice from Norton’s Cajun Corner and wander along the aisles listening vendors hawk everything from giant squash to live turkeys.

4. Ted Drewes

Locations on Chippewa and South Grand

Oh, your guests think they have the best frozen custard back home? Prove them wrong with a trip to Ted Drewes. It’s only right.

5. City Museum

750 N 16th St.
St. Louis, MO 63103

There’s truly nothing like the City Museum. Yeah, it’s the go-to spot for out-of-towners, but it earned that designation for a reason, so be a cool host and don’t let your company miss out on the experience.

6. The Magic House

516 S Kirkwood Rd.
St. Louis, MO 63122

And if your guests a wee bit younger, take them to the Magic House. Then again, adults may get a kick out of it, too.

7. Fitz’s

6605 Delmar Blvd.
St. Louis, MO 63130

Fitz’s is iconic — and delicious. If kids are along for the ride, they’ll love watching the bottles wiz through the bottling line. Meanwhile, you can challenge the adults at the table to an oh-so-mature contest to see who can finish their massive root beer float first.

8. Imo’s

Say what you will about Imo’s pizza, but the fact is, it’s uniquely St. Louis. Let your guests make their own verdict about this Provel-topped, thin-crust wonder and experience the pie as it should be — fresh and piping hot. 

9. Citygarden

801 Market St.
St. Louis, MO 63101

Take in the sights downtown with a stop at Citygarden. It’s it’s smartly designed, it’s great for people-watching, and there’s a picturesque view of the Arch — they’ll definitely want to snag a photo or two.

10.  Forest Park

5595 Grand Dr.
St. Louis, MO 63112

Everywhere has parks, but Forest Park is particularly awesome, with options for varying tastes. Hit the Muny, slide over to the zoo or just grab a couple of sides from the grocery store and eat on the hillside below the St. Louis Art Museum.

11. The Fabulous Fox Theatre

527 N Grand Blvd.
St. Louis, MO 63103

With its insanely ornate interior, the Fabulous Fox puts even some Broadway theaters to shame. Take a tour (prices here), or if you really, really love your guests, treat them to a show they’ll remember.

12. St. Louis Public Library – Downtown

1301 Olive Street
St. Louis, MO 63103

We’re pretty darn lucky to have such a gorgeous library — it’s only right that we share it with people from out of town. Bibliophiles and architecture buffs alike will love you for it.

13. Crown Candy Kitchen

1401 St Louis Ave.
St. Louis, MO 63106

Take your friends back in time at Crown Candy Kitchen. There’s nothing not to love at this retro soda fountain — and they can take home some of Crown Candy’s very own chocolate.

14. Toasted Ravioli

You haven’t truly been to St. Louis until you’ve tried the toasted ravioli. Take your company to one of these great places to properly initiate them. They’ll return home full, happy and ready to tell all their friends how awesome St. Louis truly is. Bon appetit!
