Sure, we cheer on the Cardinals and the Blues, and we ride the charming vintage tram up to the top of the Arch. But we also take in major museums, James Beard-winning restaurants and stunning parks and greenways.
We marvel at the largest and most complex archaeological site in North America in Cahokia Mounds, and revel at the world’s most outlandish playhouse at the City Museum. With nearly 50 universities and colleges along with a host of job training and vocational schools, you can learn just about anything here. We enjoy a shockingly low cost of living, pretty much every kind of housing you can imagine and a top-ranked healthcare system.
And also beer. St. Louis, of course, gave birth to Anheuser-Busch, and more than 165 years later, “the brewery” still stands as a community icon. But now the craft beer explosion has helped give St. Louis the best beer scene in America, according to USA Today.
But we’re far more than beer. As you’re about to see, the St. Louis region is lauded for placing among the nation’s best in a host of rankings. All of which is to say: St. Louis is a place you can start up, stand out and stay.
