St. Louis – The darkness of the foyer evokes a past that not even the old circular Busch Stadium could brag upon. Uniquely designed this “new” Busch Stadium is worth the trip to the Gateway City. Not much to recommend downtown St. Louis these days but the area around the ballpark is a must see. A sea of red – and a pretty good squad most years – the ballpark really does an amazing job of capturing the history and pageantry of Cardinals baseball. Musial. Brock. Gibson. Smith. McGwire. You sort of feel it all in this place. Plus, the Arch is still cool and very visible from the upper deck.
