It’s also home to a number of well-known businesses, including Purina, Boeing, Emerson, and Energizer.
In sports, the city is known as the home of the Cardinals baseball team and the Blues hockey team. In addition to the Gateway Arch, other major historical sites in St. Louis include the Art Museum, the Missouri Botanical Guardians, and Union Station. The station was at one time the largest train station in the world, although parts of it have since been converted into a shopping center.
For those who want to live in a gay neighborhood, there’s the Tower Grove area. This part of the city is also home to many students because it’s near Washington University and St. Louis University.
