Spend three entertaining days in St. Louis seeing the very best historic landmarks, cultural hot spots, and scenic city vistas!
Gateway Arch - Your trip to St. Louis would not be complete without a stop at the Gateway Arch, the absolute tallest arch in the world! This 630 foot monument stands clad in stainless steel and is known as the tallest man-made monument in the Western Hemisphere as well as Missouri’s tallest accessible building. From the top of this inverted, weighted catenary arch you will see unbeatable views of the city below, catching great glimpses of Busch Stadium, Ballpark Village, Edward Jones Dome, and the Old Courthouse, not to mention the Mighty Mississippi. Standing as an icon on western expansion in the United States as well as the centerpiece of the Jefferson National Expansion Memorial, this historic arch is the perfect mix of excitement and education. Enjoy the four minute tram ride up and three minute ride down before heading over to the museum, gift shop, nearby cafe, or adjacent riverboat cruise line!
Gateway Arch Riverboat - Get ready to continue your extremely fun Gateway Arch experience with your next stop down below at Sullivan Boulevard, where you will find the access point to the Gateway Arch Riverboat Tours. With this popular cruise line and tour company you will get to choose between the Tom Sawyer or Becky Thatcher, each boat an authentic replica of 19th century paddle-wheel riverboats. Take in the history, culture, and exquisite vistas seasonally on these entertaining cruises from March to November, the tours here going strong since 1964. Not only will you get some of the greatest vistas of the famous St. Louis Arch, but you will also learn the history of the Mighty Mississippi in regards to the city and economics of the Midwest in general as well as learn a few facts about Lewis and Clark that you may not have known before! Be sure to bring a jacket just in case and plan plenty of time for parking if you booked a dinner cruise!
Busch Stadium Tour - At the highly popular home of the St. Louis Cardinals, Busch Stadium, your group will find an amazingly fun opportunity to tour the grounds and learn behind-the-scenes info about the Midwest's popular pro-league baseball team. This year-round unique look at the home of the Cardinals gives your group a view of the field from above with the Radio Broadcast Booth, get a close-up view of the past World Series trophies, and even tour the Cardinals Champions Club. Meet outside at the Musial Statue to start, then tour the Redbird Club, Cardinal Club, and team dugout. The tour is about an hour long, with a half mile of walking intensive touring both inside and out. Before you go grab a bite to eat at the concessions (depending on the day) or stop at the team store bursting with red and white spirit. This is a great way to be immersed into local culture while pleasing all the sports fanatics in your group all at the same time!
Chesterfield Mall - Spend your afternoon getting in some much needed retail therapy as you and your group explore the wide expanse of shopping heaven in St. Louis, the Chesterfield Mall. At Chesterfield you can shop all the best stores, eat a wide variety of local beloved foods at the food court, and even catch a show at the indoor AMC Theater. If you are bringing a group of younger children fear not, there is an expansive children’s play area on level one as well as a carousel and train to ride. Before you come be sure to check for any movie listings, community events, or daily deals online. Be sure to stop for a fresh salad, sandwich, or drink at St. Louis Bread Co. for a true local treat before you go, this delicious and fresh bakery style lunch spot highly popular throughout the Midwest (sometimes also called Panera Bread Co).
Sports Fusion - End your night with a bang as you and your group let your inner kids loose at Sports Fusion, the top spot for excitement in St. Louis! This fun and exciting place was created to allow guests to "get up and be active," which it does so very well with its seven different and very active feature attractions plus fusion cafe. This establishment is known to have the best laser tag in St. Louis, as well as a top of the line arcade, mini golf course, dodgeball arena, rock wall, play structure, sport court, and obstacle course. Start your visit at the arcade, where you can play fan favorites such as Ice Ball or Super Shot alongside retro favorites such as Pac Man and Toy Soldier. Within this arcade you will find the area’s largest game, The Vault, a massive laser obstacle course!
City Museum - A visit to St. Louis wouldn’t be quite complete without a stop at City Museum, one of the top attractions throughout the entire city! This entire complex, located on Washington Avenue in the Loft District, was established in 1997 as a new museum, though it was for a much longer time an International Shoe Building factory. This repurposed architectural wonderland is filled to the brim with reused industrial objects from the city, as well as from the old factory. City Museum is a "constantly evolving art installation, playground, and discovery center," a truly magical experiment in marrying education with entertainment, learning with playing. Stop at the museum gift shop for your very own unique and fun City Museum souvenir before you go, or if you work up an appetite while here head to one of the five different full eateries within, from the fun Rooftop Cantina to the popular Cabin Inn or Tony’s BBQ!
Grant’s Farm - Grant’s Farm is one of the most widely understated St. Louis attraction, the former Busch family estate from 1954 that offers culture, history, entertainment, and culinary adventure all in one stop! The farm’s namesake comes from the period of time when Ulysses S. Grant worked and lived here, providing your group the unique opportunity to see his log cabin in near original condition! This unique St. Louis landmark combines history, heritage, and wildlife into one unforgettable experience in which you can see Grant’s Cabin, Deer Park, and Tier Garten all within the same day! Head over to Bauernhof, German for Homestead, the onsite historic spot created in 1913 where you can today find original carriage houses, beer samples, and the German eatery Brat Haus. Take a tram ride around the park to see all available shows and attractions, such as the paddle boat rides, pony rides, carousel, camel and parakeet feeding, and gift shops! There are also four different yet equally delicious eateries throughout, so save time and stomach space for them all!
Six Flags St. Louis - Day 3 is all about fun as you and your group spend some time in Eureka, Missouri, at the third ever Six Flags chain park, Six Flags St. Louis. First opened in 1971, this extremely fun theme park was first called Six Flags over Mid-America, soon growing into one of the Midwest's most popular theme park. Here you can enjoy high speed coasters, kids rides, an impressive water park, and even live entertainment! For a thrill ride the Screaming Eagle, The Boss, Fireball, or Mr. Freeze. Check to see if there are any musical events on the day/night of your visit, a popular Summer Concert Series during the warm months. The kids can head over to the Bugs Bunny section of the park, or perhaps to Hurricane Harbor, the water park with the wet and wild Tornado and Log Flume ride. Before you go head over to the arcade, gift shop, or any of the 15 plus eateries!
