St. Louis is just like every other major city in the United States with its popular attractions.

In fact, there is a reason why the St. Louis Zoo and the Gateway Arch attracts millions of tourists every year.

However, there are five must see and tourist stops that everyone should enjoy while in St. Louis.

Visit The Soulard Farmers Market

Skip going to the grocery store while you are in St. Louis and visit the Soulard Farmers Market instead. It has been a landmark in St. Louis for over 200 years. Located near downtown St. Louis, this farmer’s market houses dozens of vendors from across the area selling fruits and vegetables that are locally grown. During your visit, you can also stop by the butcher shops, bakeries, florists and jewelers.

It is also a great location for those who simply want to people watch. You will notice that the crowd is as diverse as the different items that are the market for sale. If you were visiting from another country, all of the guide books would recommend stopping by this open air market.

Tour The Bonne Terre Mine

Although this has been ranked by National Geographic as one of the best adventures in the United States, there are many in the local area that have not yet visited this destination. It was once considered one of the largest mines in the country but later filled with groundwater after it was abandoned in the 1960s.

As a result, the Bonne Terre Mine has become one of the largest below ground lakes in the world. The mine can be toured on foot or by boat, and certified divers can explore the depths of the lake.

The City Museum

There is no other attraction in St. Louis quite like The City Museum. It is a place that is filled with magic, and tourists can explore the caves, slides, exhibits and more.

The exhibits are constructed from recycled materials, and these exhibits help to give the museum a one of a kind look. It is not a stand around and observes type of museum, so be sure to bring your walking shoes.

Stay at The Lemp Mansion

The Lemp brewery has been called one of the largest breweries in the St. Louis region. As expected, the Lemp mansion is everything that one would expect of a family that operates a successful brewery.

Unfortunately, the family has been plagued by suicide and other mysterious deaths. Urban legends have surrounded the mansion, and many people believe that it is haunted. It is also frequently listed as one of the most haunted sites in the country. Tourists can spend the night in one of the rooms or can grab a quick meal if you do not want to spend a lot of time in the mansion.

St. Louis Sports Teams

Baseball fans can enjoy an afternoon baseball game where they can cheer on the St. Louis Cardinals. Enjoy watching the 11 time World Series Champions in the new Busch Stadium.

Hockey fans can watch the St. Louis Blues heat up the ice with their opponents.

These are just 5 of the must see attractions when you are in St. Louis. The city has something for everyone, and your trip will be an unforgettable one.
