You’ll find the city of Saint Louis--a business, research, and academic hub--at the confluence of the Mississippi and Missouri Rivers in eastern Missouri. Home to the St. Louis Rams, the Cardinals, and Busch Stadium, the city is a sports fan’s dream. Famous for its Gateway Arch, the architectural feat represents a “Gateway to the West” and is one of the defining features in the skyline. With ample parks, recreational facilities, and unique spaces like the downtown sculpture park and the Missouri Botanical Garden, it’s easy to enjoy the outdoors in Saint Louis.
Cars are the main form of transportation in St Louis. Public transportation includes the MetroBus (with approximately 75 routes throughout the city and the surrounding area), two light rail service lines, Greyhound service, and Amtrak passenger rail. As one of the largest inland ports in the country, St Louis also has over 16 public terminals for river transportation.
