#21: America's Center (Cervantes Convention Center)

Located in the 'heart' of downtown St. Louis, lies one of the biggest get-together and event places in the region. Features over 502,000 square feet of exhibit space. Breaking it down, America's Center has six halls, 83 meeting rooms, a conference center that can be used for private meetings, and lastly, the Ferrara Theatre, which seats more than 1,400. Since its inception in 1977 (as the Cervantes Convention Center), the building has hosted several special events, such as the Working Woman's Survival Show and the National Rifle Association (NRA) Convention.

Starting in 2013, this became the new hotspot for the St. Louis Comic-Con. While the 'real' Comic-Con happens in San Diego every July, several spin-off events from its parent company (Wizard World) have happened in various cities including Chicago, Salt Lake City and Kansas City.

Even though this is considered Edward Jones Dome up ahead, it is part of America's Center
