Spring Time in St. Louis

This region is well-known for springtime beauty. The hallmarks of spring in St. Louis are new lush grass, an explosion of colorful flowers, and the opening of parks and other outdoor recreation. Here are a few things to do in St. Louis to enjoy the season of new life while you vacation to this perfect spring destination.

The Gateway Arch

This landmark, built to “commemorate Thomas Jefferson’s vision of a transcontinental United States,” is an annual favorite, and there is no time better than when temps are mild. You can take a tram ride to the apex or enjoy a riverboat cruise for a different view of this magnificent monument.

Visit Lafayette Park

Locals will say this is the oldest public park west of the Mississippi and was the first public park in St. Louis proper. This beautiful park is full of events. Don’t miss the House Tour!

National Dance Week

If you or someone in your group is into dance, don’t miss this week! This event is a movement-lover’s dream vacation—with everything from ballet, modern dance, and other traditional western-world forms to Middle Eastern and African troupes.


No matter where you go in St. Louis, you will always find a spectacular restaurant choice. That said, most people go to the Central West End. But if you’re a true foodie, zero in on the Cortex District to the south. Officially called the Cortex Innovation Community, it’s a technology and cultural hub with some inventive eateries you won’t want to miss.
