Welcome to St. Louis!

More than 2.6 million people live in the Greater St. Louis region, which includes 12 counties covering 6,375 square miles in Missouri and Illinois, making it the 18th largest metropolitan area in the United States.

Mindful of its heritage, St. Louis builds on the past to forge new frontiers for an even better tomorrow. From a French trading post in 1764, St. Louis emerged as the second largest producer of auto vehicles in the United States as well as a center for aerospace development and defense production in the 20th Century. Today, St. Louis is forging new ground in high technology industries, particularly in plant and life sciences, information technologies and advanced manufacturing.
