Yes, we love St. Louis! What could be better than summer in St. Louis? We’ve recently spent a bit of time exploring the many different activities in this amazing city and sharing them on our Pinterest boards. As summer vacation is well underway, let’s take a look at a few of our favorites:
St. Louis Cardinals: Did you know that as of today, our beloved Cards have the most wins of any team in the National League? It’s been a great season so far, full of ups and downs and much excitement! Even when the Cards are out of town or have the day off, you can feel the team spirit in the air around this city. Beautiful Busch Stadium offers tours and accommodates groups. Thanks to the open-air setting, you can catch a view of the action as you stroll by during a game.
Ted Drewes: No warm summer evening is complete without a stop at Ted Drewes for frozen custard. What more can we say besides “It really is good guys and gals!”?
St. Louis Zoo: One of St. Louis’ most hailed attractions, the St. Louis Zoo has been named among the top zoos in the country by many organizations and publications, including Trekaroo, BudgetTravel, Parents Magazine, and Travel and Leisure. You can visit many different kinds of wildlife as you stroll along beautiful pathways, learn about nature and conservation, and explore various attractions such as the famous Zoo Railroad. Unlike many of the other top zoos, admission to the St. Louis Zoo is FREE! You can spend the day without spending a dime, or you can splurge and enjoy some of the extra features.
The Muny: Yes, St. Louis has Got Talent! Experience the magic of the musical on a stage under the stars! The Muny is the place to go on summer evenings. Once again,St. Louis doesn’t let expense get in the way of the experience. The Muny offers over 1,500 free seats on a first come, first served basis. This season is certainly not a disappointment, and includes Les Miserables, Mary Poppins, West Side Story, and more!
The City Garden: This little-known gem is worth mentioning, largely because it is little known. Nestled downtown on Market Street, this gorgeous getaway is filled with sculptures, plants, and water features. The children will be thrilled to climb, explore, and splash the day away! Be sure to bring a change of clothes.
We could go on and on and on! From the Missouri Botanical Gardens, Grant’s Farm, the Gateway Arch, and all that Forest Park has to offer, the St. Louis area is an amazing place to live and to visit.
