Root for the home team
Baseball fans who want convenient access to a ballpark may want to rent in the Lasalle Park neighborhood. The 46,000-seat retro-style Busch Stadium, just north of Lasalle Park, is the home of the St. Louis Cardinals. Fans can also enjoy the St. Louis Cardinals Hall of Fame Museum in Ballpark Village - a retail, entertainment, office and residential district next to the stadium. Perennial contenders, the St. Louis Cardinals are easy to root for and fun to see live. On your way to the field, take a quick left and visit the famous Gateway Arch. A short walk through the Gateway Arch Trail and Jefferson National Expansion Memorial will get any renter swelling with enough St. Louis pride to cheer the Cardinals on.
Although the Cardinals are one of the city's most beloved franchises, they're far from the only one. Football fans only need to hike a few blocks farther north from Lasalle Park apartment rentals to find the Edward Jones Dome, where the St. Louis Rams play. What the NFL stadium lacks in views of the St. Louis skyline it makes up for in camaraderie and cheering that will make it hard for the other team to hear themselves think.
A few blocks east of Busch Stadium is the Scottrade Center, home to the St. Louis Blues, Missouri's only NHL team. Sports enthusiasts will love the fast-paced, hard-hitting hockey as well as the passionate hometown fans. Although there's no professional basketball team in St. Louis anymore, renters in Lasalle Park are right near the Billiken Sports Complex, where there are plenty of NCAA men's and women's athletics all year long.
Sports fans will love Lasalle Park, whether they're checking out a professional team or playing with their friends in Ray Leisure Park.
