Best Time to Visit St. Louis

The best time to visit St. Louis is during its shoulder seasons, spring (March-May) and autumn (October-November). These seasons portray pleasant weather with temperatures ranging from 50 to 70 degrees Fahrenheit.

You can enjoy Missouri Botanical Garden, which is at its best during this time and can also attend the Chinese Cultural Days at garden, in May. Visiting during spring you can explore city’s outdoor attractions without much crowd at Forest Park.

Spring can receive sudden rainstorms therefore, be prepared for the same. The Missouri Botanical Garden is ablaze in the fall colours during the annual event, Best of Missouri Market, held in October. Visiting during this time you will also be able to escape holiday-crowd and high accommodation prices.

The peak tourist season in St. Louis is during the summer months (June-September). The city and its attractions are packed with maximum tourist influx. Be prepared for hot sweltering weather with temperatures rising above 89 degrees Fahrenheit, especially during July and August. Make hotel reservations well in advance (at least 2 months in advance) as the prices rise 20% higher and book your favourite restaurants a month before to avoid ques. Out of all summer months June and September are better options to plan your trip as the weather is better (slightly pleasant) in comparison with July and August with a bit thinner crowds.

Visiting during these months you can attend Circus Flora, held in June; the Great Forest Park Balloon Race and St. Louis Art Fair, held in September.

The winter season (December-February) is an off-season in St. Louis. The temperatures drop down to 24 degrees Fahrenheit and the city serves great opportunity for ice skating in Art Hill or Steinberg Ice Rink at Forest Park. You will also find some good hotel deals during this time.
