Around St Louis/USA

Introducing Around St Louis

Several appealing and historic river towns north and south of St Louis on the Mississippi and just west on the Missouri make popular weekend trips for St Louisans, including the historic pair of St Charles and Hannibal. If you're looking for some grand meeting of the two rivers however, don't. The two muddies meet in a swirl of silt and are surrounded by square miles of – you guessed it – muddy and inaccessible floodplains.
