“Walked on River Front Trail”
Review of Laclede's Landing

Laclede's Landing
Ranked #22 of 59 Shopping in Saint Louis
Attraction details
Reviewed 11 September 2017

I parked at the Biddle Street Trail Head parking lot located a block or two from Laclede's Landing. The lot, which accommodated about a dozen vehicles, was free and open to the public. From there, I walked north along the St. Louis Riverfront Trail for several miles before turning around to walk back. The trail follows the river's food wall through a heavy industrial area for about a dozen miles. During my walk I saw very few others on the trail.

This is the historic, original district of St. Louis with interesting architecture, some good restaurants and bars and very close to the famous Gateway Arch. It's becoming re-vitalized, and has a lot of potential -- but it's a high theft area as well.
Police or local authorities should do more: patrol more, install cameras, or at least post "high theft area."
After our parked car -- in broad daylight -- was broken into and many valuable stolen (that were packed and hidden out of sight), the police informed us that it is a high theft area and happens regularly to parked cars with out-of-state license plates. So there's a regular theft problem in a tourist area of St. Louis -- yet it seems little is done to make this safer for tourists.

We parked on a street within site of a park area and restaurants nearby. (there was almost no paid parking lot with space available. Several were closed - permanently. otherwise we'd have paid a few dollars to park in a guarded area). We parked directly across from a bar and a permanently closed parking area.

The theft took place around lunch time on a clear day; we were parked along the street with many other local cars. We could see a steady, but small number of people walking around the area. Not the usual signs of a high theft area. In any case, posting this as if I'd known before arriving, I would have avoided Laclede's Landing entirely.

Grandkids love horses so we headed to Laclede's Landing. Horse and carriage were from Brookhill Farms. Kids loved it. Disappointed with the lack of businesses in the area.

We went to the 1st Mississippi Nights Music fest. Firday night had one outdoor stage with free bands, Saturday, the street was gated off and cost $10 each for 3 stages, 2 indoors, one outside. The music was really good (except one punk band), but the attendance was dismal. The weather seemed like it was going to rain, but it only rained in the afternoon, night was perfect, but a little windy. There are only 3 bars open,all have food. The Old Spagetti Factory is down here and worth a try. Hope they continue to try to revitalize this area, it used to be jumping. The casino is one block away.

This place could be cool & interesting because of the history (supposedly where the founder of St Louis first landed on shore) but it died not live up to the hype. The streets are old brick & narrow & the buildings look interesting but it's a ghost town. There are a few bars/restaurants but at 7:30 on Saturday night there was hardly a soul around.
