    I am a fan from Southern California coming out to see my Rams in St louis. Does anyone have recommendations for food, sight seeing... or things that just can't be missed in the city.

    I would appreciate any suggestions.

    Thanks

    If your a beer drinker the busch brewery is good I hear. The arch is gonna have a huge line so be prepared if you go there. The zoo is free and I think so is the science center if you like that kinda stuff. Thats about the extent of what I know to see there.

    I veered away from downtown for my next visit and am staying in a hotel in Maryland Heights. If you stay downtown, I can recommend the Hampton Inn. Others on this board have stayed at the Drury Inn and the Hilton.

    The Arch is free on the outside. If you are old enough, Leclede's Landing is near and has some nightlife. There are some casinos in downtown.

    alright thats what I like to see, people making the trip.
    This is going to full of random things...sorry for the lack of any linear structure.

    st. louis is beer heaven - you got the brewery tour of course, but a growing microbrewery scene as well schlafly,morgan street brewery on the landing, (honey wheat comes highly recommended).

    St Louis Missouri - Beer Guide - PubCrawler - Search Results

    the zoo is free, the city museum is pretty unique (ferris wheel on top of a building among other quirks), we got the Ahhch of course, I wish they had a permanent display of the CityArchRiver displays, the winning design will be chosen on the 24th.

    St. Louis is a city of neighborhoods the Hill has great authentic italian food you'll want to try toasted ravioli its a st. louis thing, best appetizer ever. You might like bar hopping in Soulard or Laclede's landing. St. Louis has a tremendous housing stock and some great architecture walking through lafayette square is a sight in itself. The Central West End has a similar greenwich village vibe and pedestrian friendly too, cherokee street is growing with some great mexican food. If you know which game you're going to, there may be some festivals going on, there always seem to be anyway. Midtown and Grand Center are the theater district. You should also be able to find good blues music depending on the night.

    Pappy's Smokehouse BBQ is very popular if you have time to wait in line you should try it. Ted Drewes Frozen Custard is also very good, you can probably pick some of that up at Culinaria which is in walking distance of the stadium.

    Forest Park is on the edge of the city and its pretty huge. Its home to the zoo, art museum, history museum, and pretty women who like to jog courtesy of Wash U. You can rent a bike at forest park and bike through if you have the time, its the best way to see it.

    you can visit "Pi" in the delmar loop if you take the metrolink its deep dish pizza, can I say President Obama loved it without people getting their panties in a bunch? And of course St. Louis is famous for thin slice provel cheese pizza. You can try the local chain "Imo's" if you're interested. I usually get it with the works. The Loop has a number of other ethnic restaurants as well, but coming from LA you probably have your share of those. Still its always nice to compare. The roof bar of the moonrise hotel is a great place to see the St. Louis Skyline and have a drink. You'll also find a bit of nightlife and restaurants along Washington Avenue.

    You can gamble at lumiere, on the riverboats or a little further south at river city casino in lemay but casinos are never really as sexy as they seem are they?

    another pick of st marie charles park

    If you walk down market street you'll notice City Garden, its a sculpture park that opened in 2009. You might spend a half hour there.

    if you're into haunted houses the lemp mansion is an actually haunted and it appears they'll be turning the old lemp brewery into a haunted destination. Sounds like you'll be able to go into the underground caves. St. Louis was built over a lot of caves (its how we get started in brewing) but most of them have been closed to the public. So that's a pretty rare opportunity.

    there's a bus tour if you're interested as well, I've never taken it myself but it hits all the destinations.

    St. Louis Tours - Grand Sightseeing Bus Tour of St. Louis and Attractions in Missouri

    The Moto Museum is also pretty cool
    .:The MOTO Museum:.

    There's tons of stuff to do here if you take the time to do it. Its a pretty cool city, and its just starting to find itself again. All these places you should be able to get to by taxi lightrail bus or walking.

    While I was in St. Louis the weekend before last, I seen on the news about the epidemic regarding vehicle break-ins. The valet parking lot of the Luminere Hotel and Casino had over a dozen cars with broken windows the next day after the game. There were some other multiple-car break-ins that I saw on the news, as well.

    As I stated before, we stayed in Maryland Heights, just off of I-70. We didn't have to pay hotel parking and didn't have to worry about vehicle break-in. There are a number of hotels in that area and you can get on I-70 to head to the game (around 20 miles). If you like Casinos, the Ameristar and Harrah's are within a mile.
