    Welcome to St. Louis! For over 200 years St. Louis has been a symbol of American ambition. The center point of America's westward expansion, St. Louis' position on the legendary Mississippi River made it one of the country’s most important ports. Railways offered exotic vacations to a city which grew larger than New Orleans faster than anyone could have imagined. It became the darling destination of America, along with the rest of the world.

    Everything changed with the invention of air travel. Outsourcing of local manufacturing jobs lead to a decline in population faster than almost any other American city after World War II. The city and its leaders realized that despite the fact that the city had stopped growing, it was still something very special. St. Louis reorganized itself not as a challenger to New York or Chicago, but as a special place to live. Indeed the infrastructure, history, and commitment to creative city planning has led to astounding revitalization which may eventually open even greater chapters in the story of this legendary city.
