Lafayette Square

Forget about Ted Drewes, toasted ravioli, the Arch and Forest Park -- if you really want to show out-of-town visitors that the River City ain't no urban slouch, just take them on a stroll through the spectacular confines of the city's historic Lafayette Square neighborhood, which boasts the oldest public park west of the Mississippi in addition to hundreds of tastefully flamboyant turn-of-the-century Victorian abodes. In a city of rough edges, Lafayette Square is positively refined, an oasis of beauty boasting a reasonable complement of folksy commerce for the curious wanderer. Lafayette Square is the perfect cure for the landlocked local's blues, a gilded neighborhood by anyone's standards, home or abroad.
