St Louis

Your St Louis vacation

Equal parts Midwestern and Southern, Saint Louis knows a thing or two about hospitality. Enjoy a narrated Mississippi River cruise, free admission to the SLAM, and, yes, free beer samples at Grant's Farm and the Anheuser Busch Brewery.

Take a tram up the Gateway Arch, and catch the spirit of Saint Louis in gooey butter cake and Italian eateries on The Hill. Try your luck at the casinos, and sip cocktails with the hip crew at Delmar Loop.

Whatever brings you on a St. Louis vacation, let Orbitz inspire you with the top 10 to-dos in the Show Me State.

Best time to take a vacation to St Louis

  • Best Time to Go

    The peak season for visiting St. Louis, Missouri is June through September—Cardinals baseball and lots of festivals like Fair St. Louis over July 4th. If you must schedule St. Louis vacations in the summer, June and September are the most comfortable months. Visiting in the fall and spring is a bit cheaper, and the outdoor parks like Tower Grove or Forest Park have pretty lovely colored leaves and bright spring flowers. Remember to pack that umbrella though, and plan on reduced hours for some attractions like the St. Louis Zoo. Winter is slushy with mixed weather and chilly temperatures, but there's sledding at ArtHill, Blues hockey at the Scottrade Center, and Rams football at the Edward Jones Dome.

  • St. Louis is lucky enough to experience four distinct seasons. Heat advisories, high humidity, and triple-digit temperatures are not uncommon during the summer, so avoid St. Louis at this time if you are sensitive to heat. The city is quiet during the winter, as temperatures fall to average lows in the 20s and 30s, but you can expect to find art and music festivals during the rest of the year. If you are willing to brave the high summer temperatures, stop by on the 4th of July for the annual St. Louis Fair and Air Show. Orbitz.com can help you plan your own Midwestern vacation to St. Louis, Missouri.
