Not really sure where to post this but here goes...I'm taking the family to a concert at the Verizon Amphitheater in St. Louis (actually Maryland Heights). Have never been there before and was wondering what the surrounding area is like. Missouri's gun laws are pretty similar to my home state so not worried about that part of the trip. Anyone been there that can tell me what to expect or be on the lookout for? Thanks a bunch for your replies!
The Amphitheater is about 1 mile from Harrah's Casino, and about 3 miles from the Ameristar Casino in St Charles, so the area is fairly heavily policed. North of Hwy 70, however is an industrial area and is pretty much abandoned at night, so you should stay away from that area.
I have never been to the Verizon Amphitheater, but I have been to the Casinos when in StL for business. From what I have learned about StL in general, the Verizon Amphitheater is very likely posted.

I live about 10 miles from there and its an ok area and there will be A lot of police at the concert its self if your gonna carry make surenit stays out of sight no matter what! the parking lot is fairly well lit you really shouldn't have a problem. have fun stay safe.
Thanks guys! My daughter and her friends are attending one of those all day concerts were they rotate the bands. Just wondered about the surrounding area in case they decided they need to cool off for awhile.
I went to a concert there about 2 years ago and the venue was posted back then. They had purse checks on all bags and spot wanding going on back then in case your were curious about the Amphitheater itself.
