The science museum! I grew up a couple of hours from STL but my first roommate in college was from there. She took me there and we had a blast. Some might say its childlike, but hey, sometimes you can let that out.

I LOVE Science Museums. I could spend all day in them. I read every description.

I’ve lived in Missouri my entire life (until 6 months ago), and we LOVE St. Louis. My fiance’s extended family lives there. The Delmar loop is fun. If you you like Italian food, The Hill is the neighborhood for that! There are also walking historic tours of downtown, plus if you go toward St. Charles and Defiance there are a lot of wineries and it is a BEAUTIFUL area. Also, the farmer’s market in Soulard is a MUST. They have everything.

There is so much to do there!

Enjoy your trip!

I’m from the area, i don’t make it to the city very much as we live in a much more rural area but… I have been to Sweetie Pies (great soul food), Lumiere casino is kinda a cute place if you want to gamble, you could also do a tour of the Lemp Mansion if you are into the historical/ghost side of things.  There is also John D. McGurks Irish Pub which is always a lot of fun. I agree with xlsm St. Charles and Defiance has some really nice wineries plus St. Charles has their own historic main street that’s pretty nice and unique.

I second McGurks. That’s where our rehearsal dinner will be. The art museum just did an addition. I was pleasantly surprised with the art museum, and it’s free. 

 

Also, the city museum can be fun. And there are some pretty good restaurants downtown. I recommend Bailey’s Range on Olive. It’s a burger place but it’s good.

The City Museum is tons of fun 🙂 If you like cultural experiences, my honey and I have a fave Mediterranean joint called Ranoush on the Loop. We always order the mezza for two and get a hookah with some hot tea.

Grant’s Farm is interesting and you can see the famous Budweiser Clydesdale horses in the stable there.  If you like poking around in antique stores, definitely go to Cherokee street.  The stores there range from nice, neat polished furniture antique stores to dig-through-boxes and wind-through-crowded-rooms-of-dusty-furniture shops. (My personal favorite)  I used to live in the StL area but haven’t been back in a few years, I live in FL now; but there also were several shops that just had architecural elements like banisters, pillars, mantels, stained glass windows etc. from old homes that were torn down.  SOmeone goes into the homes before the wrecking ball arrives and pulls out all the old woodwork.  It’s awesome!  Get some Imo’s pizza and Bandana’s BBQ for me!
