When writer Miles Howard  hit St. Louis to research a travel article about St. Louis, he apparently didn't expect what he discovered:

A city he really likes.

Author of "Early Voters," a book about the electoral power of millennials, Howard raved about his week-long visit to our fair burg.

Howard took to Twitter on Saturday to say, "I legit might move to St. Louis after spending five days here ."

The response was quick. In less than 48 hours, Howard's tweet picked up 46 comments, 52 retweets and almost 500 "likes."

One of the people leaving a comment was none other than St. Louis Mayor Lyda Krewson. Wasting no words, herzonner replied, "Love to have you."

Among the stops Howard made while here in town were The Muny, Earthbound Beer, ZeeBee Market, Hiro Asian Kitchen, Brasilia and Apotheosis Comics.

Howard, who has written for The Nation and the Los Angeles Times, is penning a piece slated for the October issue of Southwest Airlines' in-flight magazine, which will begin carrying an ongoing travel series called "The City You're Missing."
