Why visit St Louis Mo?

After visiting St Louis, I wanted to share some of the great things you can find there in case you decide to go on vacation, have a bachelor party or even a wedding there!
Personally, I would love to get married under the Gateway Arch, but there are many other awesome places that are just as good.
Let’s start with the Gateway Arch though.
The Gateway Arch is a huge HUGE stainless steel monument. I think I even remember seeing it on a US Postage stamp.

Another great thing in St Louis? The awesome paddle-wheel boat. It’s supposed to be a replica of what actually traveled the Mississippi and it’s pretty cool to check out. It’s just a replica. Being someone who believes in “other” presences on this Earth, I actually would love to see the real thing, but you can catch those artifacts at some of the local museums.
If you’re a sports person, you’ll love St Louis in the summertime. This is where the Cardinals play and Where Busch Stadium is housed.
And, if you’re more of the adventurous type, you’ll appreciate that even St Louis has a Six Flags! My personal favorite ride is the “Superman” ride.
On our party bus adventure (see my last post), we actually stopped by some great bars in Ballpark Village Street. There are some awesome smoke free dance clubs downtown!
I’m not one to stay in all day so I hooked up with one of my bridesmaid buddies and we hit the Saint Louis Zoo after a night of partying. (Yes, it was rough but her kids loved it!)
I’d say the nicest part of the zoo was the Emerson Zooline Railroad because we got to sit down!
As part of our “before wedding” dinner, we hit up the City Garden and had a nice time at the café’ there. It was really cool. They have a lot of rain forest gardens and modern works of art displayed.
The boys (aka groom and groomsmen) hit up the Chestnut Grove Brewery and got in touch with their German beer rots. Of course, we didn’t hear all the shenanigans but it’s a classy place so we figured it wasn’t too bad.
Overall, St Louis was an awesome trip. I’m actually going to schedule a ghost tour the next time I go because that is something I didn’t get a chance to do! Feel free to advise which tours are best!
