If you have never been to St. Louis before, then you should make a trip to the city soon. St. Louis isn’t exactly known as a vacation destination, but if you are passing by, live close by or something else, then you should make it worth your while.
Here are a few different places that you should visit when you come to St. Louis next.
Most people visit the Arch when they come to St. Louis. You can go up to the top and see for miles once you get there. You can enter the Arch for free, but if you want to go to the top of it, it costs $10.
I haven’t been to the Arch since I was a child, but I would like to go back again and see it all over again. It’s a lot of fun!
If you are visiting during baseball season, then you should try to visit Busch Stadium. There is an all new Ballpark Village as well which can be a lot of fun. St. Louis is a big baseball town, and tickets can be bought for cheap.
St. Louis Zoo.
St. Louis is home to the St. Louis Zoo. This is one of the best zoos in the United States, and it is free. Yes, I said there is no cost! You can pay for parking, but there is free parking too and that’s what we usually do. The zoo can be a free visit for you and your family, which is a big positive of St. Louis.
The City Museum is not your typical museum. This is a huge playground for both children and adults. Don’t think that it’s just for children, many adults come here to drin and have fun. You can ride a ferris wheel on top of the building, go down stories long slides, hang out in a man made cave, and more.
There are plenty of breweries in the St. Louis area. You should try to go on a brewery tour when in St. Louis. They are usually housed in beautiful and historic buildings and offer great tasting beer.
Have some St. Louis food.
St. Louis is famous for a few different food items. Make sure to try our Ted Drewes, local BBQ joints, toasted ravioli and thin crusted pizza.
