"The Gateway City" of St. Louis, Missouri, is your portal to a past of steamboats plying the Mississippi River and a present of 630-foot-high vistas from the Observation Deck at the top of the Gateway Arch. Look east, and you'll easily spy the patch of water and green called Forest Park before casting your gaze 30 miles in all directions. The best way of negotiating those vast distances quickly is through rental cars in St. Louis.

If you're feeling lucky, you can splurge on an exotic classic car and head to St. Charles, where you can court Lady Luck at one of the casinos. When you hit it big, spread your winnings around the quaint riverfront town with structures and origins dating back to the 18th century. The ten-block Historic Main Street lays claim to being the state's first historic district and features over 125 shops fronting brick-paved streets. Further out, local wineries offer some of their best vintages for you to try. Spend some time cruising Route 66, once the main highway from Chicago, Illinois to Santa Monica, California.
