      It was amazing living here, we used to call it the "Gateway City," because of the easy access to public transportation to all routes going in both directions. Furthermore, it's three hours away from twin cities. The job industry focus on companies like Anheuser-Busch, Monsanto, and a number of other manufacturing, distribution and service firms.

      St. Louis is iconic for its parks, and the flagship is Forest Park, the 1,300-acre site of the 1904 World's Fair, now the location of several high-quality museums. This area is great for families with children as there are activities that are mainly for children. Overall, there is an array of attractions available, such as restaurants, theatres, shopping malls, state parks, historic buildings and universities.
