I have been to St. Louis many times, always driving, always wondering "What is that? What is THAT?" as I pass by one interesting-looking place after another. This was my first trolley tour of the city. On a trolley tour I get to relax and rubberneck and really LEARN about the city I am touring. This is the third tour I have taken in the third city. NOW, when I visit a city, the FIRST thing I do is look for a trolley tour, then follow it up by returning to the most interesting locations pointed out on the tour.
