Apartments for rent in Greater St. Louis, Missouri
Explore the sights and sounds of this historic metropolis from our spacious apartments in St. Louis, Missouri. St. Louis might be known as the “Gateway to the West,” but this stunning city is much more than just a portal to the younger half of the USA – it’s a destination in itself.
Although it’s the second-largest city in Missouri and one of the largest metropolitan areas in the country, St. Louis has plenty of wide open spaces. Covering well over a thousand acres, Forest Park in particular is a fantastic spot for recreation within city limits. The park offers a variety of walking and biking paths in addition to a golf course, ice skating rink and 19 lighted tennis courts.
Forest Park is also home to the Missouri History Museum, which has featured exhibits on everything from professional football to the era of prohibition. Art connoisseurs will be captivated by the nearby Saint Louis Art Museum, known for its extensive collection of ancient, Native-American and African-American compositions. Prefer live shows instead of exhibits? Catch a musical at the Municipal Theatre Association of St. Louis, nicknamed The Muny.
If you’re more of a science enthusiast than an art admirer, check out the Saint Louis Science Center, which features a planetarium and IMAX theater in addition to an interactive fossil dig site – perfect for kids! Or take a stroll through the Jewel Box, a spectacular art-deco style botanical conservatory built in 1936.
Other exciting St. Louis attractions include the famous Gateway Arch, which offers striking architecture and breathtaking cityscape views; the historic Anheuser-Busch Brewery, which offers tours and tastings year-round; Six Flags St. Louis, Missouri’s biggest theme park; and the Saint Louis Zoo, which houses more than 700 species of animals.
One of the most multicultural cities in the Midwest, the food scene in St. Louis is unlike any other. Try the toasted ravioli at Lombardo’s Trattoria and the gooey butter cake at Kaldi’s.
Even if you’re not living within city limits, there’s plenty to do within Greater St. Lou. In fact, some of the city’s finest restaurants and shopping centers are located in the suburbs, as are many of our Greater St. Louis apartments.
Whether you’re a sports fiend, art fanatic or gastronome, you’ll find lots to love in The Lou. Reach out to a Greystar representative today to find your own private villa in the “Rome of the West.”
