Best Mile of St. Louis 

Ninth Street from Lynch Street to Lafayette Avenue

Take a deep whiff. That's the smell of fermenting hops. You're standing in the shadow of the Anheuser-Busch Brewery. Head north for 5,280 feet, and you'll pass no fewer than nine drinking establishments that serve the local brew and one, International Tap House, that stocks about 500 others. You'll also encounter two green spaces (tiny Pontiac Park and bum-friendly Soulard Market Park), a verdant community garden, two playgrounds and an outdoor basketball court. Hungry? Stop at 9th Street Deli for a gourmet sandwich or wait until you reach your final destination, the Soulard Farmers' Market, to sample local produce from the oldest public market west of the Mississippi. Along the way, pause to appreciate the picturesque red-brick houses and the laid-back, beer-soaked vibe that makes Soulard one of the city's treasures.
