Located just northwest of Tower Grove Park, the Hill is one of St. Louis' most iconic neighborhoods, and it's ideal for a stroll, thanks to its Main Street vibe. Like a small town in the middle of the city, it is beautiful, friendly and has a little bit of everything. Residents wave hello, and everyone is outside on nice days walking their dogs or tending to their gardens. From seemingly every window waft delicious smells, from garlicky Italian cooking to fresh-baked bread. In the morning the neighborhood bustles with big trucks making deliveries to local restaurants and taverns. In the evening, people head out for gelato. And all the while the church bells of St. Ambrose ring in the distance.
