​St. Louis Living

​Live and work in a great metropolitan area!

The St. Louis region is one of the Midwest's key cultural destinations, boasting an abundance of museums, music and theatre venues, sporting events, fine dining and shopping districts. Here's just a small sampling of what the region offers:

  • The renowned Gateway Arch commemorates St. Louis' pioneering spirit. Generations of adventurers, immigrants and others seeking a better life have been drawn to St. Louis and the region resulting in a population of nearly 3 million, making it the 18th largest metropolitan region in the United States.
  • Many professional theatre and music companies and venues, including the Saint Louis Symphony Orchestra, Opera Theatre of St. Louis, Dance St. Louis, the MUNY in Forest Park, Verizon Wireless Amphitheater, the Pageant, and the historic Fox Theatre, the anchor institution behind a revitalized Grand Center arts district located just minutes from the Washington University campuses.
  • Professional baseball (Cardinals) and hockey (Blues).
  • World-class shopping and dining at locations as diverse as the historic and fully renovated 1894 Union Station, the modern and close-to-campus St. Louis Galleria mall and several eclectic and historic neighborhood districts including nearby Clayton, Laclede's Landing along the Mississippi riverfront, Soulard, one of the city's oldest neighborhoods, the "Hill," a traditionally Italian neighborhood, the Central West End near the university's medical center, and the University City Loop, just a short walk from the Danforth Campus.
  • MetroLink, a light rail system, which links Lambert Airport to the Danforth Campus, the Washington University Medical Center, North Campus and downtown St. Louis, in addition to the Metro East region of Illinois.
  • Forest Park, located just east of the Danforth Campus and just west of the Medical Campus, offering 1,400 acres of land for in-line skating, biking, walking, running, golf, tennis, and other sports and activities, The Saint Louis Art Museum, the Saint Louis Zoo, the Missouri History Museum, and the St. Louis Science Center.
  • The Missouri Botanical Garden, is the first of its kind established in the United States. A national historic landmark, "the Garden," as it is affectionately known, includes plant species from around the world as well as a Japanese Garden and the Climatron, a geodesic dome inspired by the work of R. Buckminster Fuller.
  • Washington University boasts some of the area's premiere cultural offerings, including Edison Theatre and the Mildred Lane Kemper Art Museum.
