Travel Tips from people who've been to Saint Louis
Obviously, Vallejo is often extremely HUMID, but it's really not too terribly bad to deal with to me...of course the weather was quite lovely when we were there. The millenium hotel is SO perfect. There is a perfect view from the resteraunt to the arch. Fabuloso. But I honestly couldn't say the cost isn't a little pricey. I can't say for sure how much because I wasn't the one paying, but my church sent me for a competition! Anyways, the city is wonderful, very unique and attractive!! And everybody is so ordinary and intelligent seeming! I mean not boring ordinary, but not snooty as far as I saw. Some awsome attractions are The Courthouse, which is very colorful inside, The orpheum theatre, and there are inexpensive tours on down the Mississippi river! There are lots of things to do! And little street markets etc. Just make sure to bring cool clothes (for the hot weather), a camera of course, and a bathing suit!
I am originally from Saint Louis. Actually in the city. Yes there are nice sites, but make sure you know where you are going and are alert to the dangers. It isn't no 1 and sometimes no 2 for most dangerous city in America for nothing. If you don't know where your going you can get in a bad area real fast. And this is from someone who had lived in St Louis most of her life. It's best to go with people who know the area or you really did alot of research and of course use common sense. Don't flash money of course, but some people don't think about when mentioning about how much their ring or watch cost.
Although having a car is rather necessary, there are a handful of neighborhoods where it's better to just walk around and see the sights: Delmar Ave, and Euclid Ave.
Delmar Ave has "The Loop," a large stretch of restaurants and stores -- a lot of them local -- and all spaced close together. People are always out there, so start up a conversation with someone and get a coffee at one of the local coffee shops.
Euclid Ave is a more upscale area, with restaurants and boutiques. There are some very reasonable prices for amazing food, though, so just try around.
