St. Louis has a bad rap. When we were getting ready to leave, a few opinions surfaced about St. Louis being a subpar place to spend one’s anniversary week. People were incredulous that we would be going to a “boring” city and of all things be spending an entire week there! Of course it’s not the usual fare of some grand trip to the Bahamas or Europe but in truth, Jeremy and I have fallen in love with discovering US cities with a lot of culture, at a pace we can savor. Don’t get me wrong, I am definitely planning to enjoy the world outside the US Borders, but we just don’t give the many culture rich cities within our mainland enough credit!
I’m going to, over the course of the next few posts, take you through the awesome city of St. Louis, Missouri. The streets filled with old townhomes and a unique culture had a lot to offer us. Stay tuned!
