The city is just steps away
Getting Around the City
From the SLU campus, you are in the heart of St. Louis. You need only walk a few minutes in any direction to discover all that the vibrant city has to offer. Take a break between classes and grab your friends for a walk through the charming neighborhoods of St. Louis.
Hungry? Stop by one of hundreds of restaurants offering favorite dishes. The farmer’s market in the Delmar Loop offers fresh food and unique local finds to take back to your apartment or residence hall—or to eat while you’re venturing through the historic Soulard neighborhood. The area also plays home to the second-largest Mardi Gras celebration in the US.
Your explorations of St. Louis could last days—especially if you decide to take on the city’s museums or parks. A great bonus: St. Louis museums offer free admissions. You can fill your time with play at the City Museum, a wonderland of industrial slides and interactive fun. Or perhaps you’ll opt for sophistication at the Sint Louis Art Museum. With so much to see and do, you don’t have to limit yourself to one interest or one day. Fill your calendar with the monthly events, exhibits, concerts and festivities happening all over the city.
