Tourism

There are plenty of attractions for visitors of this area to enjoy. Millions of people come to St. Louis annually to attend local professional sporting events, participate in tours, and visit national monuments. Additionally, this Midwest location makes the area a leading destination for thousands of conventions and corporate meetings every year.

If you are a sports enthusiast, this community has something for everyone in the way of baseball, football, hockey, soccer, and racing (both horse and auto). Baseball fans come from all over the Midwest to cheer for the St. Louis Cardinals, who in 2006 moved into the brand new Busch Stadium. Football fans have cheered the successful, and sometimes not-so-successful, St. Louis Rams at the Edward Jones Dome in the Americas Center since 1995. Hockey enthusiasts take pleasure in rooting on the NHL’s St. Louis Blues at home in the ScottTrade Center. Avid golfers have many quality-ranked courses to choose from throughout the community.

We have recently ridden the roller coaster of the buyout of our beloved Anheuser-Busch Brewery to InBev, now being called A-B InBev. With Anheuser-Busch’s long history in St. Louis, we only hope that this change will benefit our community and that the new owners will hold true to some of the long-standing traditions we have come to count on. One of these great traditions is the 281-acre Grant’s Farm that borders Crestwood and is home to more than 1,000 animals representing more than 100 different species native to six continents.

Grant's Farm

The Farm takes its name from the 18th President of the United States, Ulysses S. Grant. In the 1850s, Grant founded, and for a short time farmed a portion of the acreage, which was ultimately purchased by August Busch, Sr. in 1907. Today, this land is preserved as a living symbol of the Busch Family’s passion for animals and Anheuser-Busch’s commitment to wildlife conservation and preservation. Among one of the Farm’s major attractions are the Clydesdale Stables, which stands as one of the breeding operations for the world famous Budweiser Clydesdales.

Located less than five minutes from the two cities is The Magic House, a St. Louis Children’s Museum, dedicated to providing children with hands-on learning experiences in a creative and stimulating environment. The Magic House, which opened in 1979 as the region’s premier and most successful museum of its kind, has received national recognition for its exhibits and educational programming and is one of the most attended children’s museums in the country with close to one-half million visitors annually.

The St. Louis Region boasts of many outstanding parks. The City of Sunset Hills is home to Laumeier Sculpture Park, a contemporary open-air museum located on 100-plus acres. With an outdoor collection surpassing 70 sculptures, the park is recognized as one of the top sculpture parks in the nation, welcoming hundreds of thousands of visitors a year.

Many other attractions are within a short drive from the cities including: Six Flags, The Gateway Arch, St. Louis Zoo, St. Louis Science Center, Missouri Botanical Garden, Forest Park, Union Station, Transportation Museum, The Art Museum, Missouri Wineries, The Muny Opera, The Fabulous Fox Theater, and Powell Symphony Hall, to name a few.
