Destination guide

St. Louis opens the gate to the West

Step onto the St. Louis side of the Mississippi River and you’ll immediately know you're someplace else. Somewhere big on skies, big on space, and big on promise. Even before the silver arc of the Gateway Arch makes that change real, it's obvious you've said goodbye to the jaded East and hello to the can-do West. Visitors booking St. Louis vacation rentals are here, in part, to be electrified by that change in outlook, but also to revel in city of delightful diversity, top-ranked museums, paddleboat extravaganzas, and melt-in-the-mouth BBQ ribs.

Things to do

Keeping culture playful in St. Louis

St. Louis doesn't do dull when it comes to culture. Step into the City Museum and you'll think you're in an architectural playground. Packed with mazes, chutes, and mind games, it'll flip your idea of what a museum is all about. The Cathedral Basilica of St. Louis blows the mind too, with its stunning series of mosaics. Forest Park keeps your body busy with its tree-lined walks, ice rink, and outdoor boogie fests. Top it all off with a toast to St. Louis' beer scene, which runs from cult craft outfits to the larger local brewers.


St. Louis—paddles, music, and grills

The Mississippi is what's made St. Louis magnificent. And the view from this mighty river's impossible to beat. So, pile onto a paddleboat to see the glittering Gateway Arch at its river-facing best. Unknown to many, music—from ragtime to blues—has made its mark on this Missouri city. Be sure to check out the clubs of the Delmar Loop to find out more about the musical heritage of the city. And if you're wanting to dip into the city's famed smokehouse heritage, but don't know which St. Louis bar ‘n grill to hit, try a culinary tour led by a local grill gourmet.


St. Louis—sweetest in fall

This city doesn't just sit on the fault line between the American East and West—St. Louis is also in the middle of a climate conundrum. Here, temperatures see-saw wildly with the passing of the seasons. That makes the shoulder months of spring and fall the best for visitors looking for comfort from their St. Louis vacation rentals. Spring is beautiful, but can be a little unsettled. September and October are especially good for the St. Louis bound, though. It's less showery and visitor numbers dwindle.

Natural features

The wild things in St. Louis

With not one but two mighty rivers running through St. Louis (the Missouri River and the Mississippi River meet here, in case you're wondering), there's no shortage of dramatic natural spectacle here. These 2 rivers form great glittering sweeps that add extra color to the city's sunsets. Wildlife from across the globe can be found in St. Louis Zoo, of course. But the city itself has wild moments of its own, too. Those leaving early from their St. Louis vacation rentals might be lucky enough to spot coyotes, white-tailed deer, or even armadillos ambling the back streets.
