    Coming to town with my Wife during the 1st week of Oct. to visit The Pageant Theatre. What are some other "Must See's" in downtown STL from the locals? Will be in town for 4 days.

    Sunday October 1 the FCA will be part of the annual Columbus Day Parade through the streets of "The Hill". Following that there will be a post-parade gathering of the Ferrari and Lambo people at Herbie's Restaurant in Clayton. Come join us. Figure on Herbie's starting abut 1:30 pm.

    As a tourist you do probably want to do the ride up the St. Louis arch. There is a viewing area at the very top inside the arch.

    where are you staying? Pageant isn't really "downtown" but a close taxi/uber ride.

    Forest Park for sure. Zoo/art museum/history museum/walking trails etc. think NYC Central Park.

    The Loop (Pageant is on the east end of the Loop) is cool, particularly Blueberry Hill and the record shop.

    Pappy's Smokehouse is close and great BBQ.

    Contemporary art museum in midtown is nice but small, as is the Kemper art museum at Washington University.

    Central West End is a great bar/restaurant area near NE corner of Forest Park.

    City Museum downtown is interesting. Arch is worthwhile if you've never been. both are kinda touristy IMO.

    have fun, STL is a great city for a weekend trip.
