Living in St Louis, Missouri

With a population of over 318,000, St Louis, Missouri, is one of the largest cities in America. Founded in 1764, the city is known as the “Gateway to the West” due to the part it played in the westward expansion of the United States. The Gateway Arch is a monument to this proud history, and should definitely be visited at least once by any expat living in St Louis. Not only is it the tallest man-made monument in the US, it is the tallest arch in the world, and is the centerpiece of the Jefferson National Expansion Memorial. Also worth a visit is the Busch Stadium, home of the St Louis Cardinals baseball team. If you're a sports fan, the city is also home to the St Louis Blues hockey team, and the St, Louis Rams American football team. If you're looking to find some fellow expats living in St Louis to socialize with (and maybe catch a baseball game!), you should join InterNations, the online platform for expatriates from around the world. Join in with the group discussions, ask fellow expats any questions you might have about your city on the forums, or get in touch one on one with our direct messaging.

Moving to St Louis

If you're thinking of moving to St Louis, you'll be pleased to know that the city already has a large expatriate community. In fact, the city is home to the largest Bosnian population in the world, outside of Bosnia of course. St Louis consistently ranks as one of the most generous cities in the US, and is a lovely environment to move to. With hot, humid summers and cold winters, the residential areas have large native shade trees, while nature lovers can visit the Forest Park or explore the prairie and rivers. Originally a center of Native American Mississippian culture, the city life today is defined by music and the performing arts, in particular blues, jazz and ragtime. If you're looking for some advice on the practicalities of moving to St Louis, why not get in touch with some of the expats on InterNations who already have experience of life in the area.

Working in St Louis

A center of medicine and biotechnology, St Louis's economy largely relies on service, manufacturing, trade, the transportation of goods, and tourism. The city is also home to several major corporations, including Express Scripts, Peabody Energy and Ralcorp, to name just a few. Boeing also has its headquarters for its defense unit in St Louis and employs nearly 15,000 people. As such a large and diverse city, you're bound to find employment in St Louis no matter what industry you are involved in.
