St. Louis is around a five hour drive from Northwest Arkansas and we can get there in no time! I like having short drives alone with Markaus so we can talk, and I can nap lol.

Next, when romancing your other half in St Louis, you will want to enjoy the culinary delight that are on offer together. Of course, these can be divided into two categories fancy evening meals where you get dressed up and lighter, but still delicious food that you can grab as you are exploring the city itself.
For the latter, a place you won’t want to miss is Lonas LiL Eats, where you can order pad thai that is both delicious and filling enough to keep you energized for an afternoon investigating the city. Alternatively, you may wish to check out St. Louis Pizza & Wings. A place where you can sample that St Louis Favorite tavern cut pizza.

In fact, there are a range of high-end steakhouses that serve various cuts and even prime ribs, as well as a good range of cozy Italian places as well that are just perfect for cuddling up with your SO in.
