St. Louis is both a sophisticated, historic city and a casual gathering place. With a rich blues and jazz history and a blossoming arts scene, its spirited nightlife can hold its own against any city in the U.S.
In addition to BBQ and high dining, the city is known for unique snacks like St. Louis style pizza, fried ravioli, and frozen custard. After a dinner reservation, head away from the bustling streets of the metropolis for rolling green vistas nestled on either side of the Mississippi River.
Famous for its landmarks and free museums, St. Louis is full of novelties.
This gleaming monument to the Great Plains frontiersmen is, to put it modestly, iconic, and still the largest steel arch in the world. Head to Gateway Arch National Park and take a tram ride to the top for spectacular aerial views of the city.
Encompassing 1,300 acres, Forest Park offers more than just natural beauty: with gardens, museums, a zoo, a golf course, and an amphitheatre. Pack a picnic, because you can easily spend a whole day in the park.
A repurposed shoelace warehouse, the City Museum is a hybrid playground art project. PIecing together old industrial equipment, local artists have created an imaginative theme park with a 10-story slide, caves, and a castle.

While Saint Louis itself is endlessly fascinating, the surrounding area holds impressive geologic formations, natural beauty, and a literary pilgrimage site. Whether you’re in the mood for swimming, spelunking, or visiting the childhood home of Mark Twain, chances are you’ll find all that and more when you take to the streets in search of road trip adventures.Book the perfect car
About an hour from Saint Louis, this five-mile system of underground caves once served as a shelter for Native Americans and a hideout for the outlaw Jesse James. Today, they’re still one of the most intriguing natural marvels near St. Louis.
Just over two hours up Highway 61 is Mark Twain’s boyhood home: Hannibal. Explore Twain’s childhood home and visit the accompanying museum, then float the Mississippi River a la Huckleberry Finn. You can also take a train ride or ghost tour in this quaint historic town.
Two hours south of the city, natural pools formed in granite rocks make for a perfect swimming destination. Known as Johnson’s Shut-Ins, the pools were created long ago by volcanic activity. Waterfalls and rapids make this more than simply a relaxing swim spot, though it certainly is that too.
Great communication, great car. Michael is the perfect choice next time I'm in St. Louis.
My flights to and from St Louis were delayed and Shelby was very accommodating with the timing of the drop off and pick up. Loved the Jeep. Would definitely rent again next time I’m in town!
Luric was excellent. My first trip to St Louis. He was flexible on time and so accommodative. The best experience. Thank you
Service was excellent!!! Will use it again and specifically Dunte when in the St Louis area!!!
Thanks Monea, great car, great host!, will look for your TURO car on my next trip to St. Louis
Alex and his team were phenomenal! Anytime I fly into St. Louis I will do all my business only with Alex. The vehicle was Amazing and made for the perfect weekend I will be sending all my St. Louis clients his direction.
Cortez has a great vehicle and was very attentive. Would rent from him again when I travel to St Louis.. A++++
Safe! It’s my first time using Turo and was cautious about all the rules and regulations. Figerald is safe, reputable, and eased all my worries. Turo was perfect for my situation: flight arrived at 11:30pm and all major car rental companies closed at 12:00. Turo and Figerald made it possible for me to comfortably take my time. Thanks Figerald
Michaels communication, follow through, and car we’re all A+++! Will use every time I fly into downtown St. Louis.
Francis is an awesome host. Her car is just as it is pictured and described on the app. She gives the extra touches by supplying you with water and hand sanitizer. You will love this car. I will be sure to reserve with Francis the next time I visit St. Louis.
Steven was great. Very thorough, accommodating, and professional. I will rent from him as many times as possible when I’m in St Louis.
Kadir was very friendly and accommodating and we loved his car. Hopefully his car is available the next time we visit St Louis!
Great person, very kind and respectful. Definitely will contact next time I’m in St. Louis. The vehicle was awesome, great gas mileage and spacious.
We’ve been to St. Louis multiple times and the rental car areas are absolutely insane. This was our first Turo experience and it was amazing! Michael was great with instructions and communication. We will definitely be using again!
Absolutely perfect. Tichina made this literally the easiest and best rental experience I've ever had. The car was very nice and perfect for our party of 5. Next time I return to St. Louis I hope this is available again.
Markita was very nice. Everytime I messaged her she responded almost immediately. The car is exactly as pictured and drives very smoothly! Will rent with her when in St. Louis
Marco’s Escalade was excellent for my trip to St. Louis. This SUV is very nice, turning heads all weekend and riding like a Cadillac should ride. The service was impeccable; Marco arrived on time to meet me coming from baggage claim and met me on time for my departure out of Lambert International Airport. I could not have been more pleased with this experience for my first Turo rental and when I come back to “The Lou”, I will look Marco up for one of the vehicles in his fleet! Thanks Marco
Kadir was kind and professional! We were very happy with the car. It was a very good experience and we will rent from him again next time we go to St. Louis.
Cortez was helpful with checking in and out, and provided a safe and clean vehicle for my wife and I to use as we moved to St. Louis.
Awesome experience! Escalade is clean and rides like new. Jun was perfect host. Great communication and simple exchange at the airport. We will Turo with Jun next time we are in St. Louis.
Renting from Kendra was great. The process was simple and communication was easy. She gave me a full lesson on operating the vehicle and additional cool tips. She will definitely be my first choice for rental in St. Louis.
Douglas was a good guy to let us use his car. Really enjoyed the vehicle and if in St. Louis would use his Nissan Kicks again. Was a very good experience!!!
One of the best experiences I have had. Jun went out of the way to accommodate my request and help me so I am not going around with my 4yr old kid in cold temperatures. I will recommend him to anyone renting in St. Louis, and for sure will use his services again.
The care the service all 5💫💫💫💫💫.Alexander was a great help always responsive and very accommodating. I will Most definitely be renting again if I’m ever in the St. Louis area. Thank you !!!!
First time using Turo. Unbelievable positive experience. Short notice business trip, no rental cars available. Airline Capt told me about Turo. My host Jun was extremely helpful. Very easy. Will be difficult to use rental car companies again.
Our first time with Turo and Michael’s Volkswagen Atlas was perfect for our family road trip to Fort Leonard Wood, MO! The very clean sanitized vehicle seats 7 very comfortably and has great gas mileage. If I ever fly to St. Louis again I will be a repeat customer. Thank you.
Anthony was a great host. His Tahoe was nice and clean. He made pickup and drop off easy. He was very nice and friendly. I definitely will be booking with Anthony next time I am in St Louis.
Taylor’s black 2018 Jeep Cherokee was an awesome car to rent, loved it so much I’m thinking of buying one. It was very clean, everything worked as expected and had several luxury extras such as steering wheel and seat warmers which were wonderful in the St. Louis, MO, March weather. Taylor went above and beyond with her outstanding help, guidance and patience assisting me in my attempts to maneuver through the airport to where car was parked, adding additional driver and an early end to my trip. She was wonderful and there’s just not enough kind words to say about her.
Makita was an excellent host. My first choice was an airport rental but the office was closed due to my flight being late in the evening. I have never done Turo before but decided to take the chance. I was very pleased by how Makita stayed in constant contact with me from the beginning of my trip with picking up the vehicle and scheduling the return. The vehicle was in excellent condition mechanically as well as being immaculately clean. I will definitely work with her again on my next trip to St. Louis.
Valerie is a great host made the rental transition fast and easy I rented Valerie's 2019 Buick Encore the SUV was clean, comfortable and gas efficient, would most definitely rent from Valerie again. Thanks 👍
Jack was great. I had to change my pick up time and he was really flexible. Car ride great and was immaculate. I’d def use his car again!
Super easy and convenient to communicate with I will never use a car rental business again thank you Jesse for the good communication highly recommend.
My first Turo experience and it was awesome. Way easier than a rental car! He left the car parked at the airport it was super easy to find. Thank you!
Alexander was a great host he made the whole renting process seamless for me I would definitely recommend him for your future rental sevices!
This was my first time using Turo, and I am super happy with my first experience! Not only was his Jeep in great condition inside and out, but he also maintained excellent communication throughout the rental process. He even took the time and explained how Turo works so that I don’t make rental mistakes in the future. In addition, Marcos was highly amenable to last minute changes, making my life a lot easier for vehicle pickup and drop off. One thing that almost kept me from renting was another users comment claiming that the vehicle tag was expired. I looked myself and that is not the case (at least currently), it expires in 2023. I just wanted to mention this to ease any concerns for future renters. My experience was a 10 out of 10.
This was my first time using Turo and Tichina made this a wonderful experience. She was very accommodating when I had to modify my pick up time. The vehicle was very clean and it was perfect for my trip. Highly recommend Tichina and her vehicle.
Don was very welcoming and courteous. We enjoyed driving their Model Y for two days since we are interested in buying one sometimes next year. Would definitely rent the car from them again. Great experience!
Tim was a great host. Responded fast and was very nice. Not to mention his vehicle was comfortable, clean, and smooth. Made our trip even better. Definitely will continue to do business.
She was really nice and the vehicle was awesome. I didn’t want to give it back but had too lol definitely will be renting from her again.
Tierra was very helpful for us, she was able to change the pickup last min and meet us at our hotel. This was the nicest car on Turo in the Saint Louis area. Would rent again.
Car was clean and servicable. Owner was polite and catered to my needs. Would rent again.
Michael was super helpful and responsive. The pick up and drop off process was super easy and efficient. The Atlas was a great ride, super reliable and functional for our family of 5. I definitely recommend Michael and the Atlas!
Michelle’s car was very nice. It was a smooth ride which is a plus when we were in the city where there were tons of pot holes. The interior of the car was cleaned very well. It was not washed on the outside prior to the trip (due to weather) but it still felt like a five star rental from a regular rental company. There was a faint smoke smell but it wasn’t so bad that it was a big deal and it faded throughout the week. My only issue was that we rented in the winter and I had to buy an ice scraper to clear ice off of the windshield after it sleeted and iced over. Because I am from out of town I didn’t have one at my disposal. If you had time you could just use the defrost but I was there for a wedding and had a ton of events to get to and didn’t have time to defrost. Overall I had a great experience and I would definitely rent from Michelle again.
fellan is a excellent host . Great with communication , easy pick up and drop off . Also The car was very nice and clean . Smooth ride … would love to rent again 👍
Jamie was very accommodating, had a few changed flights and she made renting the car easy for me. Would rent from here again.
Kayla is an awesome host! She made everything simple! Vehicle is perfect and my trip was perfect!
Barry was beyond accommodating, communication was fast and productive, picking up and dropping off the car was easy, convenient and safe. The car was PERFECT, I will definitely be renting from him again in the future.
Excellent experience and highly recommend… I look forward to renting from Dieu in the future.
Douglas has very nice vehicles and has great customer service will definitely rent again
Gia is the best host and her car was impecable and ready for us when we needed it. She was also very flexible with our pick up and delivery due to flight delays.
Marcos was very responsive and flexible with me. I changed my flight on him to extend my trip and he accommodated perfectly. The jeep is also a gem, perfect for those jeep lovers without a jeep!
This famous drive winds from downtown St. Louis up toward Alton, IL. True to its name, it provides great views of the mighty Mississippi River. Following the road to its end takes you through 10 states and along 3,000 miles of the Mississippi, but a short drive also shows you gorgeous scenery.
Get your kicks on this historic route that passes through St. Louis on its way from Chicago to LA. A drive along the Missouri part of Route 66 takes you right past the Meramec Caves and Shaw’s Nature Preserve.
If you’re prepared to drive slowly, a gentle cruise through Lone Elk Park often reveals deer, bison, racoons, and, yes, elk. Along with a plethora of wildlife, you’ll enjoy scenic views of the lake and forested hills.
