Don't Miss Out On St. Louis, Missouri.
When was the last time you enjoyed a day in the city you call home? Get the family together to experience an adventure in St. Louis.
Start the morning with a trip to Grant's Farm. Built by Ulysses S. Grant, the farm is home to bison, blackbuck antelopes, zebras, and many other exotic animals. You may get to interact with some of them. Feed the goats and parakeets, ride a camel, and enjoy a memorable animal show.
Be sure to pack some sandwiches and juice boxes for Forest Park, a local favorite. Take part in the archery range, rent a boat on the dock of Boathouse Paddle Co., and start a baseball or softball game. Play a game of challenging chess while enjoying the scenery or join the City Cycling Tours. The tours involve a guided, narrated, and relaxing bicycle ride along Forest Park. Your tour will highlight the historical, cultural, and architectural sites of the park. The guides provide you with bikes, helmets, and bottled water.
If you aren't afraid of heights, a visit to The Gateway Arch is in order. The monument's tram will lift you 630 feet up into the air atop the tallest man-made monument in the United States. You'll experience magnificent views spreading over 30 miles to the east and west. Gaze over 43,000 tons of concrete and steel forming a beautiful arch 63 stories high. The Gateway Arch celebrates America's westward expansion and has taken millions of visitors to its top since 1965.
Take your music-loving friends and family to the National Blues Museum. The museum celebrates and preserves the genre as the foundation of America's modern music. The staff educates guests in an entertaining environment featuring technology, theater, and artifacts.
