What do you think about living in St. Louis?

"I love it! I’ve heard lots of complaints that there’s nothing to do in St. Louis, but that couldn’t be more wrong. All the free cultural events and venues like the zoo and museums are always a great option. If you’re into craft beer, I think St. Louis is second only to Portland, Oregon, in terms of diversity and quality. Also, the food here is ridiculously good."
