So the two of us are going to spend a few days in St. Louis in a few weeks. I’ve spent meaningful time there just once, about 20 years ago, and I failed to glean enough about the city to reject the notion of asking for help. She’s never been there. Here is what we would like to accomplish on this short fall vacation:
- Spend a day at the local Great America
- Check out the Arch
- Eat some great St.Louis-style pizza and other noteworthy vittles. Frankly, since this is going to be a fairly cheap trip, I want to spend some money on really good food – there is room in the budget.
- Walk around WUSTL, take some photos…
- If they are still doing it, take the famous tour of the Bud brewery.
I’ve no idea where best to stay to accomplish these things. I’d rather not spend more than $200/night for housing, but if it’s really worth it i’ll stretch a little.
If you guys can recommend a good general neighborhood in which to stay (or a particular hotel if you know if one), and some great pizza and other restaurants, I’d greatly appreciate it.
I’ll have my own car – it’s about a 270-minute drive from Davenport. well, four hours for me. hehe
