The city area has a higher crime rate than the suburbs, but St. Louis is one of those cities that seems to exist mostly in the suburbs. Except for a renovated waterfront area and the ballpark, most of the attractions in St. Louis are in the outskirts of the city.

The Waterfront area is very pretty and has a neat amount of shops and the train station is very wonderful. St. Louis also has a great zoo. Navigating around the city is difficult, as the traffic and highway system is confusing.

Being in a new place is so different,everything is different but the people are great. I got tot meet some really good people along the way.

Of course the Arch stands out more than anything else in St. Louis. There is no bad side to it at all
