Below the intersection of the Missouri and Mississippi Rivers, was the largest city in Missouri, St. Louis the “Gateway to the West”. The oldest university west of the Mississippi St. Louis University, founded in 1818, was also located in St. Louis.
St. Louis was also known for great places that have vibrant peaceful surroundings, and a must-visit one was the Laumeier Sculpture Park. A vibe of a tree and natural woodland with hiking trails surround the sculptures of the park. It also showcases an outdoor collection of sculptures of contemporary art in a natural environment that a visitor or tourist wouldn’t miss out on.
