Are you staying in an Arch Interim Housing corporate suite? If so, you’re probably unfamiliar with the city of St. Louis and might be unaware of all the wonderful things to partake in within the city. Did you know that St. Louis is full of fantastic activities to do, well-renowned eateries, and places full of unforgettable events to participate in?
The best part is that traveling to these places, while easy to begin with, is easier than ever with “Attraction Corridor” signs, which are located along the major thoroughfares and interstates of the city. On those signs, you will see attractions related to the big three inner-city thoroughfares – Broadway, Grand Avenue, and Kingshighway.
Last month, we discussed all of the various activities in the Grand Avenue Corridor. In this month’s final edition, we at Arch Interim Housing will discuss 10 fantastic activities you can partake in and enjoy along and near Kingshighway. Read all about them below!
