St.Louis, State Missouri

St. Louis lies just south of the confluence of the Missouri and Mississippi rivers and soon established itself as the Gateway to the West between the settled Eastern US, and the wide open lands to the west. A large number of emigrants from Germany settled in St. Louis, and many traditions such as Oktoberfest and Badenfest have been preserved to this day. The immigrants also brought the art of beer brewing to the city and today the Anheuser-Busch Brewery, makers of Budweisser beer, is amongst the largest breweries in the world. Forest Park is one of the nations largest urban green spaces, and is home to the St. Louis Art Museum and History Museum.
