The summer weather in St. Louis is hot and dry, so a wise traveller will explore as much as possible early in the morning before the temperature became an issue. I visited Saint Charles and its Lewis and Clark Museum, took the elevator / gondola to the top of the Gateway Arch, then took a 1-hour ride on the Tom Sawyer riverboat, attempted to eat lunch at the round restaurant atop the Millennium Hotel (it was closed for lunch, open only for dinner), visited the St. Louis Science Museum (with IMAX theater), wandered around Laclede's Landing and visited the world-famous St. Louis Zoo.

St. Louis is a friendly city in the Heartland of America, well worth a visit by people who want to meet some average citizens.
