Things to Do in St. Louis
A trip to St. Louis would not be complete without visiting The Arch. Known as the “Gateway to the West”, this monument was created to represent westward expansion in the United States. Locals are still proud of the 630 feet tall, stainless steel Gateway Arch and it’s a main site for the city. You know you’re in St. Louis when you see “The Arch.” Locals suggest paying the fee and riding to the top of The Arch, for incredible views of the city. The tram ride is tight, but it’s said that there is nothing like going across the Mississippi River to see the city’s entire skyline.
Your ‘one stop-shop’ in the city will be found at The Loop. This six-block district is filled with restaurants, boutiques, bars, galleries and even open-air cafes. This is a popular hangout spot for St. Louis’ young adult, trendy and hipster crowds. The shops range from second-hand clothing stores, to book stores and athletic apparel. You’ll be able to satisfy all of your shopping needs in The Loop. Make sure you visit Blueberry Hill – a restaurant and live music venue, and one of The Loop’s most sought out places. The Loop is located just north of Forest Park.
Speaking of Forest Park, you definitely don’t want to miss a trip here. Although considering the size of this enormous park, it would be hard to miss and nature lovers may pass out from the sheer size of it. The park is known to be about 500 acres larger than New York City’s Central Park, if you want to get an idea of how gigantic this place is. On top of that, the park holds about 1,300 acres of things to do in St. Louis alone. You’ll find fun museums inside the park, a golf course and summer concerts are held inside as well. The St. Louis zoo is inside the park and you should definitely check out the diverse exhibits. Plus, the zoo’s main attractions are free. If the weather permits take a jog on one of its many trails, take a boat through its waterways, or you can try your swing at the tennis courts. However there is so much to do in Forest Park, you won’t be able to complete them all in one trip. The park is free, but attractions may charge their own fees.
The Major League Baseball’s St. Louis Cardinals are very much loved in their city. Even if you’re not a baseball fan, or you’re not a fan of the Cardinals – don’t say this out loud in St. Louis, a trip to Busch Stadium is worth seeing. During a game, the ballpark is taken over by its red wearing fans and visitors say it’s a sight to be seen. One convenient thing about this stadium is the escalators, which helps with mobility around the ballpark. While you’re here make sure you stop at Ballpark Village to view the Cardinals’ history museum. It has been said that the experience of Bausch Stadium can be enjoyed without the love of baseball. The ambiance is perfect for a summer evening, and the views of The Arch, and part of the St. Louis skyline, should be seen. If you’d rather not see a baseball game, the stadium does offer day tours.
Additional free sites such as the Anheuser-Busch Brewery and Cathedral Basilica of Saint Louis should not be missed during your trip as well. However, with even more sites and activities in St. Louis, you definitely won’t be able to see everything in one trip. More family friendly fun will await you, when you return and it will be worth it.
