In the early 20th century, St Louis, Missouri, became known worldwide, hosting the 1904 World’s Fair and the Summer Olympics. The city combines eastern US energy with the relaxed grandeur of the South, represented by the Mississippi River and the Gateway Arch. These two cultures create the perfect place for a romantic break, with plenty of atmospheric hotels. Here’s our pick – bookable with Culture Trip.
