St. Louis, northeast of Springfield on the border of Missouri and Illinois, is easily recognized by the Gateway Arch, which faces east over the Missouri River. St. Louis is known for its blues, jazz, and ragtime music; as the home of Budweiser; and for its unique variety of cuisines. You can find a hostel in St. Louis on the historic Route 66 near the Gateway Arch and the Anheuser-Busch Brewery. It costs about the same to stay in a hostel in St. Louis as it does in other major American cities.
A bus and light-rail system can take you to different areas of the city, such as the Delmar Loop, which is lined with restaurants, bars, shops, and art galleries and is frequented by Washington University students. It’s a great place to go on a pub crawl or to visit hip shops where you can find everything from clothing to comic books to vinyl records. The Loop also has its own version of the Hollywood Walk of Fame, the St. Louis Walk of Fame, which has sidewalk plaques for Chuck Berry, Tina Turner, and Miles Davis. Keep the weather in mind because it varies throughout the year. St. Louis is hot and humid in the summer, rainy in the spring and fall, and sometimes snowy in the winter.
When you are looking for something to eat, you should try to find toasted ravioli (a pasta dish that is stuffed with meat or cheese, breaded, and deep-fried), St. Louis-style pizza, the St. Paul Sandwich (which blends American and Chinese-style food), or the Slinger (a late-night, breakfast-style meal you can get at St. Louis diners). For complimentary beers, take a tour of the Anheuser-Busch Brewery, where they manufacture Budweiser.
