Condé Nast Travler had this to say about our hometown:
We dubbed St. Louis one of the best weekend getaways in the country, and that designation certainly applies to a quick spring break vacation. The Midwest city probably brings to mind visions of smoke, ribs, and brisket, but it's so much more than just a barbecue city—in recent years, it's become a veritable food lover's paradise. Take your pick from ramen bowls, po' boys, and small Italian plates (and yes, barbecue), then burn off those calories at the massive Forest Park, which should offer ideal weather come March and April. Should you get a random cold front during your visit, head indoors to the St. Louis Aquarium or seriously cool and quirky City Museum.
Stay here: Downtown is a visitor’s best bet for proximity to local attractions and a dose of Midwestern hospitality. The Four Seasons St. Louis is a getaway in its own right, with a cabana-lined outdoor pool, full-service spa, and spacious, well-appointed rooms—many of which provide direct views of the Gateway Arch.
