Thanks for all the comments, folks!

ExtremeSpiff: That's where having friends who work there comes in handy.

Calliel: For the most part, I love St. Louis. Just knowing that I'll be moving 2000 miles away this summer has put me in a weird transitional place. Once I leave, I'm sure I'll be very antsy to visit again.

BoredYetCynical: I really need to put some more "attractions" in there. I hadn't thought of the Magic House. Great idea!

Is anyone else having trouble with the site? It works on my computer and the Playstation, but that's all that I have to check it. If it's not working, I'd definitely appreciate a comment or PM. Thanks!

I'm originally from right out side of St. Louis (Waterloo, IL) and I now live in Alabama. I miss the city terribly!!! I'm going there for spring break (exciting I know). I love taking the Anheuser Busch Brewery tour and visiting the Landing. Sadly I didn't realize how much there was to do in the city until I moved away! I think you did a great job with the website, the pictures were beautiful.

I spent time growing up between St. Louis and the Ft. Wood area. My absolute favorite place is the butterfly house. I also LOVE forest park and all the old, beautiful houses around that area. Sometimes I wish my permanent residence would be back up there, but then again if I lived there, I probably wouldn't visit these places as much.

I've lived about 30 minutes from St. Louis my whole life and I've never been to the City Museum, the Butterfly House, OR the Jewel Box. What the heck is wrong with me?

hey, way to represent St. Louis, this is great!
I live in South City right off Grand http://www.southgrand.org/ next to Tower Grove Park.http://www.towergrovepark.org/
the Loop just got voted one of the top ten best streets in the U.S., it was some building/planning magazine but Joe Edwards is all excited about it, property values are going up, so what about the Loop? http://www.ucityloop.com/
Forest Park was the largest park in an urban area until they turned half of it into a golf course  Cry  http://stlouis.missouri.org/citygov/parks/forestpark/
someone mentioned art hill, we went sledding there a few days ago!
we've got Laumeier (outdoor) Sculpture Park http://www.laumeier.com/
the Saint Louis Art Museum is one of the best in the nation & FREE to all. http://www.stlouis.art.museum/
Same with the St. Louis Zoo, one of the top 3 zoos in the nation & leading in the world and also absolutely FREE. www.stlzoo.org/
the Fox Theater! http://www.fabulousfox.com/
Soulard Farmer's Market! http://www.soulardmarket.com/(one of the oldest this side of the Mississippi)
Soulard Mardi Gras! http://www.mardigrasinc.com/
the Science Center! (FREE!!) http://www.slsc.org/
Steinberg outdoor Ice Rink! http://www.steinbergskatingrink.com/
the Bowling Hall Of Fame (hahaha!) www.bowlingmuseum.com/
Grant's Farm! (home of the Budweiser clydesdales) http://www.grantsfarm.com/
the Botanical Garden! (3 blocks from my house) www.mobot.org
Scott Joplin's house, Eugene Field house, super creepy wax museum on Laclede's Landing, Ted Drewes, Union Station, Cahokia Mounds, etc etc...

phew! I'm lucky that my boyfriend & I really take advantage of all StL has to offer because we've grown up here. It's easy to hate the weather & stuff but it's a really fun city if you know where to look. Everyone who misses the Lou can geek out on these websites for a minute. and the City Museum is the best!

I've gotta plug the rollergirls while I'm on this tangent, we're quickly becoming a St.L mainstay Smiley www.archrivalrollergirls.com

You aren't the only one. I still haven't gone to the top of the arch, either (even though I'm in the vicinity twice or thrice a year).

If nothing else, you have to go to the City Museum. I've never seen anything like it before, and it's just about the most fun you can possibly have with a bunch of welded-together trash.

St Louis is my new home town.  I love living here.  You've hit a bunch of the reasons.  It is a great place to explore and if you get tired of being in the city it doesn't take long to be upriver looking at eagles or out west exploring wine country.  My favorite spot (today) is Klondike Park where you can sift through the white sand, chase skinks and look over the Missouri River valley.  Plus all of the trails throughout the region are fantastic. 

And having just spent 'Spring' break visiting real winter in my old home town up north, I'm not going to complain about the weather here! 

Sorry to hear you are moving away from us.  I have enjoyed seeing your art in person!

MMmmmm Ted Drewes! 

I used to love going to The Vintage Haberdashery.  If you haven't been, you should go!

We're originally from the other side of the river (O'fallon, IL) and I love the Butterfly House! We took my daughter there when she was about 9months old and she was captivated. Her stroller was bright orange and red, which attracted the butterflies. It was neat!


Thanks so much for sharing. We're stranded in the desert right now, and miss STL.
