"Annie Gunn's is my favorite steakhouse. They have a great

"The Arch is great, a must-see. You can actually go inside it.

St. Louis. It's especially neat if you go at night with the city
all lit up. Then, there's Busch Stadium, with all of the history
and great tradition that goes along with it. Obviously, this is a
baseball town, and Busch Stadium is a great place to enjoy a
