By accident we arived at this area and it was good. We walked around and saw so many churches in this area, a farmer market, beautiful style houses, a laundry, some restaurants, and an Irish pub. Nice and quiet place.

Nice area for architecture showing the old french character of St. Louis. It is experiencing a rebirth of restorations.

This is an adorable part of the city. There are lots of little hole int he wall stores, restaurants, and bars. I would also suggest visiting the Soulard Market while you're here.

We just moved to the area and decided to try this place. Ordered one gyro and one doner. They were both delicious. Chockablock full of meat and salad. Would definitely come back for more!

Soulard farmers market is great! Bring cash and card, because some stands only take cash. There's a wonderful spice shop, meat shops, produce, flowers, clothes, etc. One of my favorite spots in St Louis.

Lodging near Lafayette Sq./Soulard (4 Replies)
I'm interested in staying near Lafayette Sq. and the Soulard Market soon, but am wondering about the area too (walking at evening/night etc). There seem to be a few b&bs, not many hotels. Any suggestions? Thanks.

You are right. There aren't really hotels right there in the neighborhoods. ONe exception is the Holiday Inn Express on Jefferson, which is still a few blocks from the restaurants and bars in Lafayette Square. If' you're not interested in staying at a B&B, maybe you could stay downtown and take a cab to whichever neighborhood you want to visit. It's probably no more than two miles to either place from one of the downtown hotels Will you be driving in? If so, it's easy to get around...More

Thanks TTT, Squatser, and jlr for the good advice. Trip went great. Drury Plaza Arch was right call; clean, comfortable room and fantastic customer service. Parking was a bit tight for my Honda Pilot, but just had to be careful. There was always a spot available. After checking in and enjoying the hotel hospitality we walked 6 blocks to the Broadway Oyster Bar for dinner. Cool place with live music and a New Orleans vibe. Oysters were good; kids enjoyed chicken I think. Fun, casual...More

Thanks for taking the time to give us a trip report. We haven't seen one in a while. You had a classic St. Louis tourist weekend. especially for a family with teens. City Museum is very hard to top for kids that age, but I think we can steer you to a few new places next time you visit. I think they'd have fun on the Delmar Loop with the walk of fame, kitschy collections and darts at Blueberry Hill, Vintage Vinyl and Star Express. My boys love the Record Exchange, which has a TON of...More

Day 5 - Up late the night before means up late this morning. Went to Riverbend Restaurant and Bar for a New Orleans lunch, South Soulard/Benton Park area. Nice place with tables inside and out and the Cardinals game on TV. I ordered the Cochon de Lait Po Boy dressed (house roasted pork) which was very good. If only they had told us it didn't come with anything else...no chips, fries, coleslaw etc. My husband had the Riverbend Po Boy dressed (ham and roast beef and gravy) which was ok, but not...More

Wow, what an awesome trip! I've have several very good meals at Benton Park, but we kind of quit going for breakfast due to the crowds. Hopefully they were just having an off day. Haven't had an Amighetti's Special in forever. We started going to Adriana's whenever where in the area at lunch time. Pastaria - definitely on the to do list. Thanks again for the trip report.
