Oh, did I mention the trains? One year we hopped on the train (really) from St. Louis to Milwaukee to see the Calatrava museum there. It was during the winter and the scenery was stunning. On the way back it was dark and was like rolling through an Edward Hopper painting. Another time we again hopped aboard a train to Springfield, Ill to see Abraham Lincoln's home. These are not exactly a weekend in Vegas but that's the point. Trains, trains everywhere! And such a lovely place to come home to.

@Becky Harris,
Sorry! I didn't mean to derail your original premise but oh, my gosh - you obviously hit a nerve with this city. I couldn't be more thrilled. It deserves all the accolades we can throw at it. Thanks for starting this!

Good article! I never stopped to smell the roses when I drove through Saint Louis - except to visit the Gateway Arch and only because Eero designed it. I found the city in decline back in the mid-80's with many non-descript "modern housing projects" that were atrocious. I'm glad the city is making a comeback after the 2006 award for urban renewal.
