Wonderful place to hang out!

I love the CWE very diverse and many restaurants, coffee houses and bars. Very close to Forest Park (which in my opinion is better than Central Park in New York.

Many different restaurants, bars, dessert locations. Parking can be difficult...wait times in the evening are long. Make sure you don't leave any valuables in your cars.

I love the neighborhoods in Saint Louis because they have their own personalities. If you want to get some shopping done in small stores or find a cute restaurant this is a great spot!

An upbeat, busy neighborhood. Lots of dining options with outdoor seating. Shopping ranges from boutiques to Lululemon to Second Hand Books.

There are so many wonderful places to walk and eat in this hip n trendy neighborhood. From quick bites to a full menu can be found here. The movie theater in the Chase is nice and Straub grocery is delightful. So stop by and spend some time and then cruise over to Forest Park

I try to swing by Euclid Avenue when in St. Louis. I enjoy walking around the area. The homes in the area are fantastic to see. It offers many types of restaurants and even a little shopping.

If you live in a virtual world grab a window seat at Starbucks or Coffee Cartel. If you're a drinker Gamblin Whiskey House will have exactly what you need. Chocolate lovers can flock to Bissinger's.... More
