Gateway to the West

Test the local claim that Saint Louis is second only to Washington, D.C. in the number of free activities available by spending your holiday exploring the city's central neighborhoods, famous for their restored century-old red-brick buildings.
On the 17th (Fri), pause for some serene contemplation at Cathedral Basilica of Saint Louis, then take in panoramic vistas at The Gateway Arch, and then fly like a bird with a parasailing or paragliding tour. Keep things going the next day: make a trip to Old Courthouse, then meet the residents at Saint Louis Zoo, and then stroll around Forest Park.

The Show-Me State
Acquired from France as part of the famous Louisiana Purchase, Missouri offers visitors equal amounts of urban and rural tourist attractions, with a good sprinkling of lush valleys and meandering back roads ideal for leisurely road trips. The state has a highly varied geography, ranging from the till plains in the north to the rolling Ozark Mountains in the south. The state sits at the intersection of North America's three greatest rivers, creating fertile plains known for supporting extensive farms and ranches. Now generally considered part of the country's Midwest, most people used to count Missouri among the southern states, primarily due to its status as a slave state before the Civil War.
