Downtown St. Louis starts at the banks of the Mississippi River, where you’ll find Gateway Arch National Park.

International Travelers

St. Louis is a destination for international travelers featuring culture, history, dining, iconic landmarks, blues music and plenty of Route 66 attractions.

The Gateway City is a place where history and imagination collide, and the result is a Midwestern destination like no other. In addition to a revitalized downtown, a vibrant new hospitality district continues to grow outside of the America’s Center convention complex. More than $5 billion worth of development has been invested in the region, and more exciting projects are currently underway.

The Gateway to the West is a melting pot of cultures located at the crossroads of America. The region enjoys the ethnic influences of early immigrants from Germany, Italy, Ireland and Poland, coupled with newer arrivals from Bosnia, Ethiopia, Africa, Asia, Latin America and beyond. The result is unique shops, boutiques, galleries and one-of-a-kind restaurants that contribute to the region’s cosmopolitan vibe.

The Gateway to the West offers exceptional music, arts and cultural options, as well as such renowned – often free – attractions as the Saint Louis Art Museum, Zoo, and Science Center, the Missouri History Museum, Citygarden, Grant’s Farm, Laumeier Sculpture Park, the Museum at the Gateway Arch and the Anheuser-Busch brewery tours. Plus, St. Louis is easy to get to and even easier to get around in. The Gateway City is within approximately 500 miles of one-third of the U.S. population and within 1,500 miles of 90 percent of the people in North America.
