Surprised St. Louis forum doesn't have a photo thread. Here are some shots of the city I took while visiting in 2005.

I'm coming out for a conference in early April and will be staying at the Renaissance St Louis Grand Hotel. I will have a couple of mornings open for sight seeing (tues & wed), then will be in conferences all day thurs & fri, and going home on sat. I will probably be going out to dinner with the gang in the evening. I'm looking for interesting places to see within walking distance. I'm also looking for a grocery store were I can stock up on healthy food/snacks. I'm on a pretty strict food plan due to food allergies, so dining out is going to be a challenge. Are there any restaurants that could be considered california cruisine? Is Culinaria/Schnucks within walking distance? or another grocery store?

TIA

All of the downtown attractions would be within walking distance for you. Here are a few:
- The Gateway Arch, and the museum of Westward Expansion under the arch
- City Garden
- City Museum
- The Old Courthouse
- Lumiere Hotel and Casino (there are also a few restaurants in the casino)
- Busch Stadium and Ballpark Village (I think should be open by then?)
- Flamingo Bowl (Bowling Alley - actually a very cool place)
- Soldiers and Sailors military museum (a bit under rated, I actually enjoyed visiting the time I went, but I never hear much about it)

Washington Aveneu west of your hotel will have many dining options. A few of my fave's are
- Over / Under (listed as Contemporary American)
- Rosalita's (Mexican, and great margaritas!)
- Copia Winery and Market
- Charlie Gittos (Italian - not on Wash Ave)
- Mike Shannon's (steaks - again not on Wash Ave)

Also - The Eads Bridge on Washington Ave has a pedestrian sidewalk where you can walk out over the river for a great city view ... Yes, Culineria is a very easy walk from your hotel. Peabody Opera House is not far (I did not check to see if anything is going on during that time of the year) ...

There is also a newer theater downtown (MX Theaters) that is a cool place to see a movie and is just a few blocks from you on Washington Ave. The have a full service menu. Pi pizzaria is in the same building and is a popular pizza place in the city (they have more than one location). There is a metro stop as well on Washington Ave, and you could take the metro west to the Central West End, another very popular urban neighborhood.

Enjoy your stay in the Gateway City!!
