When one thinks of St. Louis, MO. you automatically think of the Gateway Arch. It is quite a neat piece of architecture. For a fee you can take a ride all the way to the top. If you get claustrophobic you may want to re think going up. It is a pretty tight space so I have been told. I didn’t go up when I was there pretty much for that reason. If heights and tight spaces don’t bother you then you will probably love it! It is definitely a Kodak moment though when you see it.
It is always fun to catch a Cardinals game when you are in St. Louis. Even if the Cardinals aren’t your favorite team it is still a fun experience for the whole family. Their field is pretty new and very nice.
Another fun option for the baseball fan in your family is the Sluggers Museum. That is a cool place! You get to see how bats are made and they have life size statues of players and announcers and even a small scale field. They even have batting cages. They have nice gift shop and you can purchase personalized bats while you are there.
Other fun activities for the kids (and adults too) is their laser tag and miniature golf center. St. Louis has a Six Flags and a water park. They have a beautiful botanical garden a fun science center too. St. Louis has a wonderful zoo as well. We went there on vacation a few years ago and we were not disappointed. The best part is the zoo is absolutely FREE!
The World Aquarium is definitely a must see when you are in St. Louis. You can see sharks, stingrays and all sorts of reptiles and fish from all around the world. The World Aquarium is a little bit pricey but worth it if you love sea creatures and marine life.

St. Louis is a great vacation spot to take the kids. There is so much to see and so many things your kids will want to do. The best part is there is many things you can do for absolutely free! Who can beat that! As I mentioned earlier the zoo is free, but so is the Science Center, The St. Louis Art Museum, The Missouri History Museum, The new Citygarden, a place of pretty fountains and wading pools. The kids will love this place! The Municipal Opera also is free as is the World Bird Sanctuary. You better plan about a week long vacation to get it all covered!
A place you will not want to miss is Grant Farms. This is another FREE attraction, BUT parking will set you back around $11.00. You will see tons of great animals from all over the world. You will find the beautiful Clydesdale horses here.
