Episode 28: Visiting St. Louis

What else have you done that’s entertaining while in STL?

  • Union Station – restaurants, new giant ferris wheel, aquarium, hotel
  • Cathedral Basilica
  • Magic House – children’s museum in Kirkwood, MO, not far from downtown
  • Outdoors
  • Forest Park – what do you recommend people do there?
    • Art Museum, mentioned already above, has a nice restaurant
    • The Zoo – one of the best in the US and it’s free
  • MO Botanical Garden, Laumeier Sculpture Park, the Arch
  • The Arch is a must see!  It is now designated as a National Park and was recently completely renovated with a fantastic museum below ground.  You should definitely take a ride up in the Arch, however, things to know before you do:
    • The “elevator” is the same that was initially installed.
    • It is small.  We are big.  It is a cramped and a bit of a confined space.
    • You will be up high!  The windows are small.
  • Local wineries –
    • Try the MO wine.  There are some good ones, but you may have to try a few first.
    • Hermann, MO– great wineries (Hermanhoff and Stone Hill) with wonderful bed and breakfast options
