  • And a quick explanation as to why it deserves a visit.





No needless fluff, no boring anthropological lessons! Just everything we love!



We don`t stuff our travel content with working hours, credit-cards accepted, nearby transportation and user-reviews as it tends to bulk up the writing and are subject to change since the time of publishing. Once you decide the places you want to visit, these infos can easily be found at your hotel concierge, on-line or on Google Maps.

Not user-review based



Similarly, our philosophy has been that user-reviewed travel sites are subjective, as they tend to top-rank places that manage their reputation on those sites. So little corner bakeries, unique shops by local artisans, secluded beaches and hidden bars don't show up in those sites as visibly as places that have an on-line marketer or social media specialist. Similarly, we believe the opinion of one well-informed local expert should outweigh the opinion of hundreds of first-time visitors to St.Louis. First-time visitors tend to flock to famous tourist attractions, creating a vicious circle, accentuating just the popular places. Our local experts know the entire city, and know what deserves a visit, whether a famous attraction or a quaint corner.



St.Louis Travel Guide is the first travel guide to St.Louis you should read.



It quickly helps you define your short-list of places you want to visit, so you don`t have to spend hours reading hundreds of pages of dense writing. All for less than the price of a sandwich.

Product Description:
The history of Lambert–St. Louis International Airport is the story of American aviation. Everything that has taken place on the airport’s footprint—from Lindbergh to American Airlines, jet airliners to space travel—constitutes a microcosm of the triumphs and tragedies of winged flight in America. The Aerial Crossroads of America chronicles the transformation of the patch of farmland leased by Albert Bond Lambert in 1920 into the sprawling international airport it is today. Illustrated extensively with images from the airport’s history, the book tells not only the story of Lambert, but also the history of what it means to take flight in America.

Aviation expert Daniel L. Rust begins his story with Albert Bond Lambert’s pioneering efforts to promote air travel in the Midwest. While other American airports might today eclipse Lambert, Rust shows that airports serving New York, Los Angeles, and Chicago all lack the longevity of Lambert and its range of historic activity. In the book, Rust moves at super-sonic speed, covering the 1923 Air Races, Charles Lindbergh and his Spirit of St. Louis, the US Air Mail service, the birth of American Airlines, military aviation, the rise of the aircraft manufacturing industry, the development of air traffic control, regulation and deregulation, and the decline of Lambert as a large hub following the demise of TWA and 9/11.

Brimming with anecdotes, little-known historical threads, and lively explanations of just what Lambert has meant to the aviation industry, The Aerial Crossroads of America will be an invaluable resource for anyone interested in aviation, inspiring readers to glance out their windows and admire the view on every ascent.
