The Gateway City. “The Rome of the West.” Baseball, Beer and BBQ. Steeped in history, St. Louis offers the curious traveler a touch of everything. Sitting on the bank of the Mississippi River, “the Lou” was at one time a center of industry and the base of American expansion to the west. Today, St. Louis is the 58th most populous American city and a center for manufacturing, service, shipping, trade and tourism. Host city of the 1904 Summer Olympics and the World’s Fair/Louisiana Purchase Exposition, St. Louis should be particularly attractive to those interested in American history.

I have rated the City of St. Louis as moderately accessible due to its sidewalks being in a generally poor state of repair and its the inability of visitors to secure a wheelchair taxi.
