St. Louis Doesn’t Suck

My friends from out of town always visiting STL. Their favorite thing to do while here is just wander around until they come across something interesting.

What better way to start this blog up than a post about how everyone says St. Louis sucks. We’ve been rated one of the most dangerous cities in the United States, one of the top 10 saddest cities due to suicide and rates and various other things along these lines.

I came across an article on Forbes last year that dared to stick up for the Lou. It insists St. Louis Doesn’t Suck.

“St. Louis has its problems like anywhere else, but there’s a lot to like: good schools, nice parks, great public institutions, competitive sports teams, strong corporate base, the world’s largest mustache (Gateway Arch), and plenty of places that make delicious beer.”

This is all too true (except maybe the good schools part =/ ). The city has a lot to offer and what’s even more fun about it is you have to search for it. There’s always somewhere new to explore and something new to find. It’s not always out right in front of you and that can be exciting. There’s a little bit for everyone.

So, no, St. Louis doesn’t suck. You’ve just gotta have the pair to venture out and find out why – and this blog is to help you.
