Downtown

 
Have a wonderful experience in historic Downtown St. Louis!  Stroll the streets of our traditional Central Business District that offers many places to eat, shop and relax.  Enjoy the convenient parking and easy access to our businesses.  Our downtown has a fine mix of retail and specialty shops, service businesses and places to eat and get together. 
 
Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, Downtown St. Louis is a quaint, picturesque place that is the focal point of the City and home to many community events.  Downtown also has many of the town's key features such as St. Louis High School, Clapp Park, the W.T. Morris Memorial swimming pool and the St. Louis Farmers Market.  Our beautiful new City Hall and Police Department opened in 2015 right downtown, and our new St. Louis Area Fire Department is also in the downtown area.
 
In recent years, the City has partnered with MDOT and MEDC on several downtown enhancement projects.  Victorian lighting, stamped concrete, sidewalks and landscaping were added on M-46 and South Main Street to the St. Louis Area Historical Society Depot Museum and park area.  Victorian light poles with energy-efficient LED heads were also installed on North Mill Street.  The downtown's alleyways and parking lots were repaved and redesigned to improve access to St. Louis' storefronts.  Total investment in public improvements in this area in recent years is well over $2 million.
 
The downtown is part of a safe, walkable neighborhood, as the business district is surrounded by residential homes.  Some beautiful Victorian homes still stand along M-46 and in select spots around downtown.
