St. Louis, WPS All-Star City

St. Louis, MO (Aug. 28, 2009) - Now I know why St. Louis was chosen to host the inaugural WPS All-Star Weekend.

Of course I knew St. Louis is a strong soccer town, but what I discovered as I followed the All-Star contestants out of the Hilton Ballpark, downtown, and walked three blocks to the Gateway Arch and the park surrounding it, winding along the Mississippi in both directions from there, is that St. Louis is a well-kept secret.

Not only are the world's best female soccer players all in one place this weekend, but so is some of the world's greatest public art, architecture, and urban landscapes. Who would have guessed?
