Favorite thing: St. Louis has one of the very few US city halls to be constructed in the flamboyant "French Renaissance Revival" style of the late 19th century. Perhaps fitting, though, considering the city owes its name to the most glorious and honored of French medieval kings. A large amount of Missouri pink granite was used in its construction, a project that took up most of the 1890s.

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
