Big City Gusto with Small Town Flavor

If you like big city action, you can sure find it in St. Louis. It's the ultimate sports town, according to ESPN Magazine, with die-hard fans and several professional teams – including the eleven-time World Series champion St. Louis Cardinals, who play ball in the newly Busch Stadium where every seat has a great view. St. Louis also has its share of modern art, live music and theater, tons of entertainment and nightlife, and loads of fun things for singles and families to do. And it’s home to many Fortune 500 companies.(1)

For all it offers, St. Louis has a remarkably low cost of living(2). You can find lots of ways to enjoy yourself without spending any money because popular attractions like the St. Louis Zoo, St. Louis Art Museum, Missouri History Museum, Contemporary Art Museum, and Shakespeare in the Park are all free. Our culinary scene is something to cheer about, too, with hundreds of one-of-a-kind restaurants – including over 60 recognized by Zagat and Wine Spectator, and 40 on Sauce Magazine’s Restaurant Row – St. Louis is a great place to live.(3)
